Event Description :

The growing demand for food, increasing wealth, urbanization, changing preferences and diets, along with the competition for land, and climate change ...have increased the focus on developing sustainable agriculture value chains for fruits and vegetables. It has been estimated that about oneā€third of the global food produced gets lost or wasted while moving food from farm to plate. There is an urgent need to streamline supply chains to optimize the food production cycle and cut waste at the retail and consumer level, and at the same time to develop 'win-win' models for growers, exporters, importers, and consumers.

The focus of the session is to discuss Food processing from Global and Indian perspective and provide an overall outlook on Value Chain Development in India. The second part of the session will be on a specific fruit: GRAPES - a case study on state of grape exports, challenges, and opportunities globally and locally.
