Every year in January, for the past 10 years, we have been organizing the largest mega congregation of stalwarts from the food retail galaxy – The India Food Forum. For over a decade now, the Forum has served as India’s pre-eminent knowledge and business networking platform for food retail. The 11th edition of India Food Forum will be underway from 17th-19th Jan. at the Bombay Exhibition centre, bringing together once again key decision makers from every part of the food supply chain, apart from the country’s finest talent in food research, creation, distribution and retailing.
As in the past years, the groundbreaking agenda of the Forum this year will help to focus and reframe our understanding of the trends shaking up modern food retailing. A number of changes – socio-economic, cultural, technological – are shaping the Indian food landscape with disruptions in business models of companies, and in terms of their interaction with consumers and responsiveness to their needs. As the shape, size and construct of food industry is changing fast, this evolution needs to be supported by continuous improvements in the food supply chain, inclusive of product development, production, processing, distribution and marketing.
Th e recommendations and solutions by experts at the Forum address the challenges in the food retail eco-system and act as a guidemap for boosting the odds of success in this hypercompetitive market. We will bring you the key takeaways that the Forum’s panel discussions, workshops, master-classes and round tables are known to offer. Ensure your copy and watch out for the next issue of the magazine.
