India Seeks to Upgrade its Food Processing Ecosystem

India seeks to partner with companies in the food processing ecosystem in the U.S. to incorporate best practices into its food value chain.
Ahead of the mega ‘World Food India‘ trade show in New Delhi from November 3-5, 2017, India’s minister for the food processing industry, Harsimrat Kaur Badal, is leading a visiting Indian delegation which met officials from companies across the food value chain in Chicago and Washington D.C.

Badal said that World Food India provides a platform to food processors, machine manufacturers, technology suppliers and refrigeration companies that are interested in expanding their footprint in newer markets. India is looking at partnering with those companies to upgrade Indian systems and technologies, she added.
