The Bangalore Chamber of Industry and Commerce (BCIC), under the aegis of its Agro and Food Processing Expert Committee, will organise a day-long seminar, titled WhatsHapp Foods–v3.0:Bridging Gaps Through Vital Linkages and Synergies, on December 5, 2017 at Hotel ITC Gardenia.

The Indian agro and food processing industry is recording double-digit growth. Being the second-largest producer of farm produce in the world and the third largest economy in terms of purchasing power parity (PPP), India is a promising place to be in.

With a massive food market that is fast expanding, exciting growth in the retail sector and attractive economic policies and fiscal incentives, India’s food economy is thriving.

The key objective of the seminar is that it intends to enlighten participants on how this crucial sector is evolving in the new and challenging industry environment, the impact of Goods and Services Tax (GST) on this sector, innovations and start-ups catering to a discerning customer base and, more importantly, the reach of products through new-age branding and marketing channels.

“There is an urgent need for these aspects to be understood at both the macro- and micro-levels and integrate accordingly to the evolving framework,” said Raju Bhatnagar, secretary general, BCIC.

The seminar will be addressed by speakers including Krishna Byre Gowda, agriculture minister, government of Karnataka; Sadananada Maiya, founder, Maiyas; Hemant Malik, chief executive officer, ITC Foods; Neeraj Kakkar, chief executive officer, Hector Beverages (Paper Boat); Rinka Bannerjee, founder and director, Thinking Forks Consulting; K C Raghu, chief executive officer, Pristine Organics, and nutrition expert; Pradeep Dubey, managing director, Winter Logistics; S Venkataramani, partner, SDU; Kushal Agarwal, partner and chief financial officer, Aspada Investment Advisors, and Murali Ganesan, chairman, agro and food processing expert committee, BCIC.

The topics for discussion will cover branding, innovations and challenges in product development, traditional foods, emerging opportunities, packaging, supply and cold chain, taxation (GST), venture capital (VC) funding opportunities and issues related to the agro food processing sector, which is currently growing at a healthy double digit rate.

The organisers said, “The participants will get insights on the latest happenings, and accordingly, they can plot strategic goals to navigate on the macro-environment and capitalise on the emerging opportunities that present themselves in the agro and food processing industry.”

They could expand business through innovation, look at equipment, machinery AND infrastructure planning, make competitive assessments and look at market entry with business plan development.
