India - A growing hub for Oils and Fats
India is the world’s largest edible oil importer and the second most populous nation in the world, with over 1.2bn people. It imports some 11M tonnes/year of edible oil, against domestic production of 7-8M tonnes.
The country consumes around 19M tonnes/year of edible oil and per capita consumption stands at around 14-15kg, compared with a global average of 22.8kg. The government’s 12th five-year plan (2012/13 - 2016/17) aims to increase domestic production of oils from 7.06M tonnes to 9.51M tonnes by the end of 2016/17 through increasing oilseed area and productivity.
India offers enormous growth potential from a business perspective to international companies through its rapidly developing markets and infrastructure projects.
