Abstract:

It was found that growth performance of agro-processing industries in Karnataka was unsatisfactory when compared with its other states. It is found that 48 per cent of the household expenditure in India is on food items and the demand for processed/convenience food is constantly increasing. With relatively cheaper labour, low cost of production, base for domestic and export markets could be set up. Processed products like packed polished wheat (atta) has widened the market, attracting multinationals like HALL and Pilsbury (a joint venture with Godrej). “Ready to eat” food and snacks are also slowly picking up. Agro-processing can be grouped as food processing and other agro processing like cotton, jute, etc. Currently, agro-processing industry is concentrated in the unorganized sector with low science and technology and little or no standardization and grading. Agro processing could be defined as set of techno-economic activities carried out for conservation and handling of agricultural produce and to make it usable as food, feed, fibre, fuel or industrial raw material. Compound annual growth rate was employed to arrive with the meaningful results. When compared to other industries in the third phase of 2011 to 2018, agro processing industries has got a considerable growth which signified the importance of agro processing industries. Therefore it has great scope for development in the state. Hence, it must be promoted extensively. Existing investment in this sector are found facing many problems which affect their operation.
