According to TechSci Research report titled ‘India Food Technology Market Forecast and Opportunities 2021’, the food technology market in India is projected to grow at a CAGR of over 12% during 2016-2021.

Unless the industry adapts to these new-age technology interventions on multiple fronts, the future seems shaky.
