The consumer industry for eatable food processing items has a very wide spectrum and it is concentrated largely in the organized sector including public sector units and large corporations in private sector. Forming FPO as an organized food processing is a main objective of the FPO.
The Confederation of Indian Food and Trade Industry (CIFTI) is the apex body of food product manufacturing units while Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA) is promoting exports of a wide range of Indian agricultural products and processed foods. Availing required support from the above organization will create a sustainable farming community. Food processing industry is of enormous significance for FPOs development because of the vital linkages and synergies it promotes between the two pillars of our economy, industry and agriculture. Fast growth in the food processing sector and simultaneous improvement in the development of value chain are also of great importance to achieve favorable terms of trade for Indian farmers both in the domestic and the international markets. Important contribution that food processing industry at rural level could meet the nation's food security and minimizing the post-harvest losses of crops, reductions in these losses are bound to give us better returns and thereby improve the income level of the farmers.
