World Food India intends to establish global linkages and facilitate foreign investment in India’s US$915-billion farm-to-fork ecosystem that services the needs and rising aspirations of the country’s 1.3 billion consumers.

As the world looks for new growth opportunities, World Food India (WFI) serves them on a platter, according to India’s Ministry of Food Processing Industries, the organiser of WFI.

The event is a gathering of investors, manufacturers, producers, food processors, policy makers and organizations from the global food ecosystem. WFI aims to provide opportunities for both investment and trade in the food processing sector for leading Indian and international companies.

Encompassing the entire food spectrum from production to consumption, WFI is looking at creating a better sourcing environment, thereby enabling higher returns for farmers, creating employment and fostering entrepreneurship.

To be held at Vigyan Bhavan, the government’s premier convention centre in New Delhi, the event expects visitors from more than 30 countries. Italy, for example, has confirmed its participation as a ‘Focus Country’, as will be The Netherlands. Business and trade delegations from the US, the UK, Poland, Netherlands, Germany, Italy, France, Spain, Australia, the UAE, Bahrain, Singapore and Japan will also be participating in the event.
