At Food Tech 2006, a symposium organized by Automation Industry Association of India (AIA), leading Indian and international experts from the Food & Beverage sector and Automation specialists emphasized the increasing role of Industrial Automation technologies in helping Indian companies raise standards and become more globally competitive.

Calling for 'early adoption', to cater to the burgeoning domestic middle class and a growing export requirement, the Minister of State for Food Processing Industries, Subodh Kant Sahai, commented, "The relevance of Food Tech 2006 needs to be viewed in the light of enormous opportunity that global technology provides to India's food processing industry." He stressed on the need to move fast in adopting technologies.

In his opening remarks, J.P. Singh, President AIA said, "The Food & Beverage Industry has been declared as a 'priority sector' and is amongst the fastest growing sectors in India today. Given the enormous demand potential, changing socio-cultural complexion and inherent agricultural strengths of India, the food & beverage industry has a golden opportunity to leverage automation technologies and attain global standards. As bigger players optimize economies of scale it is equally important for small scale sector to adopt modern technologies in order to attain better quality standards and establish a strong imprint of Brand India."

The event attracted 100 delegates. The deliberations brought out the important role automation technologies play in enhancing quality, productivity, safety and consistency. Presentations from industry leaders and users of Automation technologies, such as Nestle, NDDB, KRBL, HLL, UB and EID Parry highlighted value of industrial automation to manufacturers of Milk, Milk Products, Rice, Beverages, Sugar and other food items. AIA welcomes your suggestions for partnership in enhancing the competitiveness of the Food Processing Industry.
