About The Event

India continued to be one of the top producers in number of food grains, fruits, dairy products and poultry & meat products. At the same time, we lag behind the most of the developed countries and also some of the developing Southeast Asian countries in terms of processing and value addition. This is resulting in lower returns on investments, very high wastage (up to 28% in some cases) and lower shelf life.

Understanding the need, CII has launched an exclusive show, Foodpro, in 1995, to bring the focus on all the above factors and over the years, Foodpro has grown in to a technology exhibition for food processing industry.

I am pleased to inform you that Foodpro 2017, the 12th edition of India’s biennial event on Food Processing, Packaging & Food Technology is scheduled from 7th – 9th September 2017 at Chennai Trade Centre, Chennai, India.
