India is self-sufficient in wheat, rice, corn and milk.
But – it is becoming “richer, younger and more urban” which inevitably means consumption patterns will shift.
Just a very broad approach here – but after over two weeks in India these are the “big 6 food imports” of the next decade:
- Nuts (almonds and walnuts)
- Pulses (peas, chickpeas, lentils)
- Apples, grapes and pears
- Beverages (juice and wine)
- Processed fruit (dried apricots, raisins, prunes and jam)
Be great to see the “Aussie Hamper” enter the gift giving market in India.
