 Private investment in food processing and agri-business is growing rapidly. Some of this investment activity is attributed to greater participation by private equity/VC investors; while in other cases, there is significant strategic interest by domestic and foreign food & agribusiness companies to invest in India. The strategic investors are looking for entry points into new markets and/or expansion in new product categories.
