On being part of the mega food expo, Bhaskar Venkatraman, CEO and Director of Millennium India said: Foodpro gives an opportunity to showcase our entire range of products to retail businesses which include, manufacturers, re-sellers, hospitality owners, packaging, food processing, cold storage and other logistics service providers. We have world-class technology products of Point of Sale and other store supportive products, and we are here to enhance the awareness of retail business owners on the advantages of using top-notch POS products for their business growth.”

Commenting on the importance of conducting such an event, a CII official said: “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 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. Hence it is essential to increase the awareness on the importance of food processing and packaging. FOODPRO exhibition will help businesses to work towards adding value to processed foods and increase shelf life.”

To add value to the show and focus of the growing food sector, CII has added two more verticals – ColdStoRe and T-Food – as concurrent shows to Foodpro2017.

ColdStoRe will focus on the complete cold chain right from primary cold storage facility for food grains and fruits at Farm Level to high end cold storage for meat and food products including the important sector of Cold / Refrigerated Transportation.

Exhibitors profile will include companies that provide equipment, tools, and technologies that support the infrastructure and operations of the cold chain from design to build & operate. The focus will also be on third-party cold storage and refrigeration logistics and all forms of refrigerated transportation, Import/export facilities and services.

T-Food, a traditional food festival will try to bring the awareness about the traditional and local foods. This show will showcase the processed traditional food in healthy way, newer recipes of cooking traditional foods and will provide an opportunity to entrepreneurs to show case the developments in processing of traditional food.

CII will be organizing conferences on food processing technology, cold chain technology and workshop on traditional food with demonstration which will be addressed and conducted by experts in respective fields.

The event will be an ideal platform for the above profile companies to further strengthen their business and brand awareness and also to showcase their latest solutions to the user industry across sector.

Budget 2016: Indian Retail Sector Feels Let Down by FM

CHENNAI, India, 2016-Mar-11 — /EPR Retail News/ — The Union Budget for the 2016 fiscal though focused more on farm sector and gave a balanced outlook to other industries, stakeholders of the Indian retail sector believe that the Budget did not offer any direct proposal to boost the sentiment of the business community but the sops offered to other sectors will have their implications on the retail sector’s long-term growth.

India’s retail sector, which is the third largest employment generator after agriculture and construction industry, adds considerable momentum to the country’s GDP year-on-year. According to industry sources, though there are no big-ticket announcements in the budget to add fuel to the retail sector’s growth, certain indirect measures proposed by the Finance Minister Arun Jaitley will improve the buying sentiments among the middle-class, and add up to the growth of retail and allied sectors.

Bhaskar Venkatraman, Founder and Director of JusTransact.com

Bhaskar Venkatraman, Founder and Director of JusTransact.com, an exclusive online market place for Point Of Sale (POS) technology products, says, “The announcements on GST, change in custom/excise duty structure and separate fund allocation for skill and rural markets development will improve the consumption in the long run. The GST, once implemented, will help eCommerce firms rationalize their supply chains by meeting taxation issues. For eCommerce, measures proposed to meet infrastructural challenges will improve the reach and connectivity. However, the budget lacked big announcements to face-up the retail sector. More so, being the backbone of the retail sector, it was natural to expect relaxation on import duty on POS technology products and proposals to encourage cashless transactions in the budget.”

The government, as an indirect measure, has proposed to allocate Rs 97,000 crore for road sector which will ultimately improve the transportation and logistics commitments of the retail, e-commerce and warehousing sectors. There is also a proposal to introduce Rs 1000 cr fund to incubate technology-start ups which will boost digital/ecommerce sector, feel experts.

Baskaramoorthy D, Vice-President – Sales, Posiflex Technology (India), which offers POS and other technology products to retail sector, feels that the budget offered nothing to encourage common man. “Prima facie the budget does not encourage the common man to indulge in expenditure, which is not going to be good for the retail sector. One needs to wait and watch how the ‘Make-in-India Program’ gets implemented with clear government policy & its impact on economy,” he says. 

Anuj Puri, Chairman & Country Head of JLL India, a leading research firm, feels that the proposal to revamp model shops & establishment Act will help the retail sector immensely.

“The unorganised retail businesses will receive a fillip as even small shops will get the support to open 24X7 just like malls and super markets. This not only will improve business and facilitate shoppers to get their things on all days, but also lead to more employment opportunities. However, we will have to wait and watch the reactions from the labour market,” Puri feels.

However, the silver lining is that no direct taxes to tax the retail sector as of now till we get to know the implications of GST next year, which will bring in uniform tax regime all through India, feels Bhaskar.
