GrainTech India has strong support from prominent Indian agri and food organizations, adding strength and value to the event. Among the numerous organizations supporting the exhibition are The Solvent Extractors' Association of India, All India Food Processors' Association, Coffee Board, Roller Flour Mills Federation of India, Spices Board India, The Soybean Processors' Association of India, All India Rice Exporters' Association, Indian Oilseeds and Produce Export Promotion Council, CLFMA of India, and Indian Biscuits Manufacturers' Association. The list is, indeed, a long one!
Indian agriculture is now going through critical times. On the one hand, relying on the strength of Green Revolution strategy and having emerged as an exporter of grains and food products, the government is keen to enact a Food Security law to ensure availability of food grains to every individual in the country. On the other hand, the weaknesses in the implementation of the strategy are showing up in a glaring manner. One such instance is the huge losses of procured food grains for want of proper storage facilities.
The need of the hour is to increase productivity of grains and build an effective supply chain to ensure what is produced in the farm reaches the consumer in good shape. In fact, what is imperative is to plug every loophole in the food production and distribution system, which means use of effective available technology and building of modern storage system.
As per trade sources, India wastes food grains worth huge amounts every year because of weaknesses in storage system & techniques and deficiencies in supply chain. It is unfortunate in a country where a sizeable section of the population goes to bed hungry.
India has over 5000 Rice mills, 1200 Flour milling plants in organized sector apart from over 2000 in small scale, 200 Soybean plants, 2000 Spices crushing plants, 2000 Pulses mills, 2000 Oilseeds crushing units, 1000 Feed Units, 100 Bio-fuel and energy projects, 1000 Coffee plants etc., which are looking for new and better technology to upgrade their manufacturing, processing, packaging line. GrainTech India 2017 will seek to reduce the technological gap existing in processing and supply chain.
To feed increasing domestic demand and also to achieve the export targets of food products, Ministry of Agriculture, Ministry of Food Processing Industry and Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA) under the Ministry of Commerce are investing a substantial share of the budget to promote technological up-gradation and value addition in all segments of rice, wheat, pulses, oilseeds, spices, dairy & feed, and all other food sectors. The event will join hands with the government to support its efforts.
The last edition of GrainTech India 2016 had the participation from over 30 countries around the world such as Turkey, Poland, France, Italy, UK, China, USA, Holland, Spain, Japan, South Africa, New Zealand, Israel, Taiwan, Switzerland, Germany, Thailand, Russia, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Oman, Iran, Brazil and UAE etc.,who displayed their comprehensive range of products and technologies in the grain industry. This year we are expecting more countries to come to India for technological interactions with their counter parts and tap the huge potential of Indian market.
A forum like this, connects those with technologies with the ones in need of technological solutions. It helps in raising the awareness level about the availability of technological solutions and knowledge.
Participating in such forums strengthens our name and image in the market. The trade visitors that we received displayed a very keen interest in our products.
We always get a very good response here. The display of machinery helps in facilitating meaningful discussions. It is a good platform for industry stakeholders to come and see the products of so many companies at one single point. It is an extremely good platform for the industry.
AAIPMA is very happy with the response it has received at the exhibition. We have seen an interest for the use of plastics in agriculture, so we too are trying our best to promote it. The visitors, who were not just from Karnataka but even from many other Indian states, showed a keen interest in understanding the latest developments in plastics and how it can further help in agriculture.
We have been participating in this exposition for a few years now. We receive very good response here. Even this year we had visitors from retailers, distributors, and many leading companies, like ITC and Unilever.
This is the largest exhibition in India for our industry. We have been participating for the last five years and every year, we get a very good response.
We deal with Basmati and non-basmati rice. Producers as well as exporters. The response has been fabulous for us. Many clients from all over India. We received a few potential clients from Kuwait, Egypt, and Spain. We are expecting that many of these deals will be finalised. We will definitely participate next year as well and with a larger stall.
Basically here all the investors explore the potential projects that can be profitable. Many people have expressed their interest in investing in our state. We have managed to reach out to people who are interested in the state. Every day we received almost 300-500 trade visitors. I am hoping a lot of it will materialise.
A nine month old company. We were waiting for our certifications and now that we have received them, we are hitting the market. Its a very good expo, we have received a lot of inquiries and the response is just great! As far as I am concerned, at this show we have managed to meet a lot of people, who want to take this product to their state, especially the northern states of India. We also met a few international clients, hopefully that will go on to turnout well.
The response has been fantastic. We are new to the Indian market. We are very pleased with the visitors we have received. Its our second time at the show. The response this year is extremely focussed. A very good show!
This expo is very good for all the people related to agribusiness. India is among the top producers of maize, wheat and rice. We are doing very good business here. This expo is an extremely great chance for anyone who wishes to launch their products in the Indian subcontinent. Moreover, the customers too get a nice idea of the products as they get the opportunity to compare the products at one place.
We have been participating through the years. We managed to meet many potential customers. We met clients from many other parts of India too.
We are in the flour milling sector. We received many good clients. This is our fifth year here. Its an extremely professional show.
It is extremely good! If you even compare it with the kind of response we receive in other South East Asian countries, then this is perhaps the best. This will definitely help us in establishing ourselves in India and we are thinking positively about participating next year too.
This is the second edition that we have participated in. This year, we met many new companies from China and many other countries. The expo is especially good in two ways, we get a chance to meet stakeholders from not just all parts of India, but even from the world over. Its a synergy of B2B as well as B2C contacts. Its a wonderful proposition, it has been improving every year. Media Today Group has managed everything really well. I am extremely happy with the expo!
This is the third year. We have received a very positive response. We are seeking distributors for our products and for this we got an opportunity to interact with people from Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Kerala and many other parts of India. We will definitely participate next year too.
We deal with processing equipment that are mainly used in the grain industry. We participate in this exhibition to showcase our product range to the grain industry. We received a very good response and we were able to promote our products to the target customers.
