India is the second-most populous country in the world with 1.3 billion people, and the third largest economy. At the same time, its economy is one of the fastest growing globally, with an impressive growth rate of 7.1 pct. (2016).The government of India has in recent years put strong effort into liberalising toward an open market economy, including reduced control over foreign trade and investment. At the same time, the middle class has increased significantly and enjoys wage increase around 5 pct. annually.
DANISH AGRI-FOOD EXPORTS TO INDIA
India’s agricultural sector is of great importance to the economy and provides livelihood to more than 58% population of the country. The sector holds a large potential for increased productivity and efficiency. At the same time, the Indian food processing industry is growing, due to the constant increase in disposable income of consumers, urbanization, the increasing and young middle class, changing consumer preferences and food habits, and more organized retail markets with chain stores opening.
As a result, there is a large potential for Danish companies to export food and food-related products to the Indian market. This includes both high-quality processed food and beverages, as well as various food ingredients, e.g. flavors, specialty starches, starter cultures, enzymes, probiotics, other food additives etc.
At the same time, Danish companies can also help India with technical solutions, equipment and know-how to expand its own production in order to satisfy local demand. E.g. there is a growing market for food processing and packaging equipment, as well as automation solutions to small and large scale production units. In addition, India increasingly demands technology and expertise in the areas of traceability and food safety, as well as solutions in storage, cold chain and logistics.
The primary objective of the trade promotion therefore is to match Danish competencies with Indian demand.
