India's food and grocery (especially FnV) market is expected to touch $1.8 trillion in 2022, growing at around 7 percent annually. The FnV segment in India accounts for over 50 percent of the total retail industry because of its significantly larger size. FnV can be subdivided into two parts, namely Fresh & Frozen vegetables & fruits (FnFVs), which together account for more than 60% of FnV sales. Processed FnVs, including canned foods, packaged foods, beverages, etc., accounting for 40%. In such a scenario, the importance of a well-structured supply chain is crucial.
The FnV industry faces two significant challenges of being highly fragmented, with volume concentrated in small retailers, and having poor storage infrastructure. The FnV supply chain also faces significant issues around quality as a majority of FnVs are grown by empowering those who lack awareness about post-harvest management practices.
