Two events - T-Food and ColdStoRe - will make their debuts alongside the twelfth essay of Foodpro, which is slated to take place at Chennai Trade Centre between September 7 and 9, 2017. The aforementioned events, organised by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), will be dedicated to the traditional food and cold storage, cold transportation and cold supply chain sectors, respectively.

T-Food 2017
The objective of T-Food (Traditional Food Festival and Expo) is to create awareness about traditional and local foods in India.

It will showcase traditional processed foods prepared in a healthy way and newer methods of cooking traditional foods and provide entrepreneurs an opportunity to showcase the developments in the processing of traditional food.

ColdStoRe India 2017
ColdStoRe India 2017 will be an exhibition focused on the cold storage, cold transportation and cold supply chain sectors.

It is aimed at providing manufacturers and users an interactive platform along with opportunities to deliberate on the technology used in, the scope of and the future trends in the cold chain industry.

Giving statistical details about the market, a CII spokesperson said, “India is the second largest producer of fruits and vegetables. However, only 2.2 per cent  of our fruits and vegetables are processed, leading to lower export and very high wastage.”

“To overcome this bottleneck, the government of India, through the ministry of food processing industries (MoFPI), is promoting the development of affordable cold storages and cold chains at every food producing hub in the country with value addition infrastructure,” he added.
