Only 10% Of The Produce Is Utilised In India. Harsimrat Kaur Badal Tells How To Curb Food Wastage
India is one of the largest producers of food in the world, be it fruits, vegetables, cereals or poultry. Despite being the largest producer where 60% of the population is directly related with the agriculture, the food processing levels in India are minimal. “We process only 10% of what we produce,” said Union Food Processing Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal at the second edition of Indus Food 2019 at Greater Noida. Indus Food is India’s official, export-focused Food & Beverage Trade Fair; the expo was organised by the Trade Promotion Council of India (TPCI).
