Food Imports to India from the World: Prospects and Way Forward

India is one of the fastest growing markets in the world. Among the various sectors contributing to the growth of the economy, food is one of the fastest growing sectors owing to factors such as a large population base, rising middle-class, increase in per-capita income, and greater consumer awareness. Several initiatives have been taken by the Indian government in recent years to improve the ease of doing business and reduce the compliance burden through use of technology- but still India ranking is indicative that we as a country need to take a few more steps.

Below are the points of discussion:

  • To improve ease of doing business
  • Reduce cost, time taken and clearance in importing food products
  • Improve India’s ranking in logistics performance indicators

Trends in Hospitality - Focus on the future of the Food Industry

To be well versed with the most recent fads and innovation in the hospitality industry, we glanced over the latest bulletin and drew the inference that the trending headline is FOOD. As it is known that food has always played an essential role in the hospitality sector, where they can only become more resilient as it has a substantial influence on service quality of hotels and restaurants.

Keeping in mind how 2022 has laid out how much our food system is weak against extreme events,

  • What does the future of the food industry hold for us?
  • What's changing in the food industry?
  • What innovations have caught the most attention?
