Food processing contribution to GVA needs to quadruple to become developed nation by 2047


A report by Grant Thornton Bharat has stated that India’s food processing sector needs to quadruple its contribution to the country’s Gross Value Added (GVA) in order to become a developed nation by 2047. Currently, the sector’s contribution to GVA stands at 1.8%, but it needs to reach 7.2% to achieve the target. The report, titled “Vikasit Bharat by 2047: Role of the Food Processing Sector,” highlights the challenges faced by the industry, including food safety, sustainability, and labor shortages. It also emphasizes the need for investments in rural infrastructure, such as grading and packing centers, storage facilities, transportation, and testing laboratories.
