Indus Food is the most comprehensive F&B marketplace in the South Asia region, showcasing F&B products, F&B processing, and packaging technology. Indusfood fuels the F&B business by facilitating connections between buyers and brands with outstanding services like international hosted buyer program and online matchmaking programs, bridging relationships, and strengthening connections. Additionally, retailers and buyers have opportunities to learn, network, and conduct business with new and returning exhibiting suppliers. With an expanded emphasis on showcasing new brands and technologies to a greater variety of buyers, Indus Food is committed to Inspire, excite & connect the global F&B industry.
Indus food 2022 was organized by TPCI from 8th Jan to 10th Jan at exhibition center Noida.
On 7th January, we got the prestigious award by TPCi for Business transformation brands by honourable MP Mr Muniswamy from Kolar, Karnataka at the award ceremony hosted by TPCI.
The true test of mettle is in tough times. Indeed, the Indian F&B industry has proved its mettle in 2021, despite continued disruptions and volatility in trade, particularly with the shipping crisis. F&B exports had bucked the overall trends in April-October 2020 with 10% YoY growth, and this accelerated further to 23% YoY growth during the same period in 2021 (CATR Research).
Traditional segments including cereals, fish and crustaceans, sugars and sugar confectionery, dairy produce, meat, poultry and fruits & nuts have seen strong growth. But it is all the more pleasing to see that some unconventional products like Tripura’s jackfruit, Kanpur’s jamun, Assam’s red rice and Burmese grapes have debuted in India’s export basket this year. Some of this new demand for products like millets is a result of increased focus on nutrient rich and immunity building products post the pandemic. Another segment is organic foods, exports for which grew by 51% YoY to Rs 7,078 crore in April-February 2021.
This momentum is extremely vital for the Indian food processing industry, which is looking at an unprecedented opportunity in domestic and global markets. The Indian food processing market itself is expected to double from US$ 263 billion in 2019-20 to US$ 535 billion in 2025. Factors driving this trend include the massive pace of urbanization, rise in dual-career households and therefore a trend towards packaged foods, dairy, snacks, ready-to-cook and ready-to-eat products.
Besides, India’s strategic location and rich raw material base make it a highly strategic location to export processed food products. India exports agricultural/horticultural products and processed foods to more than 100 countries/regions with major exports to the Middle East, Southeast Asia, SAARC countries, the EU and the US. But the share of processed and value added exports is still pretty low in the agricultural export basket at less than 15%.
India’s exports of processed food to the world in 2020 were recorded at US$ 12.65 billion, surging from US$ 11.48 billion in 2019. Its growth rate of exports for processed food at 8.03% remained significantly higher than the world’s average growth rate of 0.65% for the past three years, and we are still only touching the tip of the iceberg.
In this scenario, the Trade Promotion Council of India is back once again with the 5th Edition of Indus Food, South Asia’s most integrated trade show for the F&B and food tech industries. With its two co-located shows Indus Food F&B and Indusfood Tech, the show will congregate a combination of established and emerging Indian enterprise in these critical sectors, and provide them with a robust platform to partner with global buyers, sourcing agents, suppliers, technology providers, retail chains, etc.
Indus Food 2022 is both a testimony to the Indian F&B industry’s indomitable spirit to ensure uninterrupted flow of trade and TPCI’s firm resolve to support its expansion and integration into global value chains through this focused and integrated B2B trade show.
Given the uncertainties that persist wrt the pandemic, we understand that business objectives must go hand-in-hand with the health and safety of our esteemed delegates from around the world. Therefore, we have taken utmost care at the venue to ensure that COVID-19 appropriate protocols are followed, as was done in the previous edition.
Truly, the mantra of the times is Mask on, Business On, in letter and spirit! On that positive note, I conclude with heartfelt wishes to all participants at Indus Food 2022 for a safe and successful event.
We have stepped into another year of savoury endeavours. A time to pull up our masks and businesses. This flavourful runway is getting ready as we cordially invite you for the Indus Food festival, 2022 organised by the Trade Promotion Council of India on the 8th of January 2022 at New Delhi.
Shri Abhishek Poddar, Managing Director of Nani Agro Foods Private Limited and Vice President, Trade Promotion Council of India (TPCI) is gladly celebrating this experiential flavours of food of India.

India’s relations with Caribbean countries already have deep ethnic roots that trace back to the 19th century, when contract agricultural labourers from India were shipped to work in plantations. Ethnic Indians form around 30-40% of the populations in Guyana, Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago, and are also present in lesser numbers in other countries like Jamaica and the Bahamas. The Indian diaspora is quite active in Caribbean nations, ensuring significant demand for Indian products.
Food and beverages products constitute 16.8% of the total imports of Caribbean countries. In 2020, the regions’ F&B imports stood at US$ 9.07 billion. Top imports are food preparations, n.e.s, milled rice, maize, frozen cuts and edible offal of fowls and tobacco. Leading suppliers for F&B products in this region are the US, Netherlands, Brazil, Dominican Republic and Canada. The US accounts for over 44% of the Caribbean nations’ F&B imports.
India’s total exports to Caribbean nations stood at US$ 561.32 million in 2020, out of which F&B products have 14.96% share. Therefore, India has only 9.3% share in the Caribbean food market. Top products that India supplies to these countries are shrimps and prawns, cigarettes, whiskies, tobacco, and sweet biscuits. Furthermore, largest buyers for products among the Caribbean region are Dominican Republic, Haiti, Trinidad and Tobago, Belize and Jamaica.
India is among the top 15 exporters for food and beverages products. There are products where India has competitiveness and which are significantly imported by the Caribbean nations from other sources. These include food preparations, milled rice, maize, tobacco, cheese, oil cakes and other residues, food preparations for infant use, cigarettes, bread and pastries, and preparations for animal feeding.
Indian raw material suppliers can also tap the food processing industry of Caribbean nations. In markets such as Trinidad and Tobago and Barbados, there is significant processing of wheat flour, soy products, dairy products, animal feeds and rice. Around 20% of the raw material for these products in the region is sourced from internal suppliers while rest 80% is imported from rest of the world. Furthermore, as the world’s leading rum producers, the region is home to several major rum manufacturing units.
The Caribbean region is vividly diverse, with a Gross National Income (GNI) per capita that varies from US$ 800 to over US$ 30,000 according to the World Bank. Most countries are heavily reliant on tourism, while some have a high share of commodity exports. According to World Bank, Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) region has carried out around 398 reforms during last 15 years, thus increasing ease in doing business. Jamaica, a Caribbean nation, is 3rd in LAC region in terms enacting reforms to improve business in the region. However, the issue of high import tariffs in Caribbean nations like Dominican Republic and Trinidad and Tobago needs to be addressed.
Trade Promotion Council of India has done extensive work on promoting Indian agri exports across the globe, particularly in processed F&B products, through focussed market outreach initiatives. The Council’s membership base includes some of the best F&B producers and exporters in India. Last year, when the world was struggling from the pandemic and physical events were impossible, TPCI organised a series of virtual buyer-seller meets (BSMs) in the F&B sector to ensure trade continuity and growth. Caribbean was one of the focus regions of this initiative, as we recognise its untapped potential.
While Indian products have been reaching this market via distributors in the US, the virtual BSMs helped some companies develop direct trade linkages with distributors and retailers in the Caribbean. Besides participating in the virtual events, a Caribbean delegation was also part of the 4th Edition of the Indus Food (2021), TPCI’s flagship trade show for the Food and Beverage industry.
Our experience so far shows that there is a visibly lucrative market for branded Indian F&B products in the Caribbean. We look forward to providing more platforms in collaboration with relevant stakeholders to build on this initial momentum and further diversify India’s F&B trade basket with the Caribbean countries.
