Performance of food processing industry sector in Uttar Pradesh
Dr. Bhupendra Kumar and Sohanlal
India's agricultural production foundation is quite robust, and it has regularly produced more. India is first in the world for milk, ghee, ginger, banana, guava, papaya, and mango output, and second for rice, wheat, and a variety of other vegetables and fruits. At the same time, food processing in the country is extremely low, and agricultural produce waste is extremely high. Despite India's large-scale food production, food inflation, food security, and farmers not receiving remunerative rates for their output, among other challenges, are the country's significant concerns. These concerns worry policymakers in the country because they impact residents' basic necessities. The value of wastage of raw food materials in the country, on the other hand, is extremely significant.
