Union Minister for Skill Development & Entrepreneurship, Government of India

“With the Indian food industry poised for huge growth, increasing its contribution to world food trade every year, there are big opportunities for the youth to enroll across job roles in the sector, get skilled and avail new opportunities of employment. In India, the food sector has emerged as a high-growth and high-profit sector due to its immense potential for value addition, particularly within the food processing industry. With our focus on ‘Growth of Indians’ from ‘Growth of India’, to enable India’s transition to a knowledge-based economy, FICSI is helping in the growth of skilled manpower with vision of increased productivity and profitability. We are certain of the positive outcome that we will see eventually, in the coming years.”
