Brief Description of the Event: The first edition of “INDUS FOOD” 2018, a Global Food & Beverage Reverse Buyer Seller Meet was held at India Exposition Mart, Greater Noida, India between 18-19 January, 2018. The event was organized by Trade Promotion Council of India (TPCI) and supported by the Department of Commerce, Government of India, with the primary objective to create a global platform for Indian exporters from F&B sector and boost bilateral trade ties. 

The event was inaugurated by Shri Suresh Prabhu, Hon’ble Minister of Commerce & Industry (CIM), GOI. The show attendance comprised of 320 Indian F&B exporters who exhibited in 12 different Food clusters namely Consumer Foods, Fruits & Vegetables, Spices, Beverages, Oil & Oilseeds, Dairy & Dairy Products etc. products in completely pre-equipped booths. Colossal attendance was seen in the form of 455 foreign participants from 40 different countries mainly the decision makers from leading Importers, Supermarket Chains, Government Bodies, and Major                 Wholesale Groups etc. Also, 10 States including Haryana, Maharashtra, Gujarat, J&K, Kerala, and Jharkhand had their own pavilions at the event. Among other activities, the 2-day event included roundtable official, presentations and B2B dialogues which attracted a large number of stakeholders from both sides.

      4. Participants Feedback (in brief) :  The general opinion of the  Indian Exporters was that more activities of this fashion should be encouraged in the Indian sub-continent to be able to host a global food trade platform  like Gulf Food, Dubai. When such large scale annual event will take place in India, it will boost the confidence of the exporters as they can connect with their global counterparts in their home country which will pave the path to better utilization of the resources.

Suggestions/Improvements indicated: It was advised by the Industry stakeholders & Think Tanks to conduct the Exhibition in the month of December owing to severe climate in January, proximity to the Gulf Food, 2018 dates etc.

Outcome analysis by the Council / Trade Bodies
We feel that the huge demand by the foreign buyers at the INDUSFOOD in food and beverages sector and India’s surplus potential to meet this demand requires policy decisions in economic diplomacy by both DOC and MEA. In other words, the surplus produce of Indian farmers could get access to the foreign markets by addressing the bottlenecks. The large number of foreign credible participants and foreign big ticket buyers at the first edition of the INDUSFOOD shows that the event was a grand success. If the feedback from the Indian exhibitors and the foreign buyers/participants is anything to go by, we can convincingly say that the event was a platform that created a win-win situation for both sides, as well as established a clear path for India to be able to host a global food trade platform.

 Orders by the foreign buyers (and those in pipeline), is a clear indication that the criteria and other parameters for selection of buyers worked well. Given that the growth in the agriculture sector in India is on the decline, such export promotion measures in this sector will perhaps encourage the sector to reverse the trend. TPCI worked in tandem with the DOC and MEA (and Indian missions) and other govt. agencies to achieve the success.
