Indian Agriculture is witnessing a shift towards its sub-sectors of horticulture, meat & poultry, dairy and their products, which all are perishables. Horticulture alone, in the last decade, has become the second largest producer of fruits and vegetables in the world, next only to China. India currently produces about 190 Million tones of fruits and vegetables. Diversification and value addition are the key words in the Indian agriculture today. These changes along with the emerging food retail sector, especially with the opening up of Foreign Direct Investment, have brought in a lot of opportunities in the domestic sector. Market liberalization and increasing shift in consumer demand have also offered attractive opportunities for agricultural exporters from developing countries.
