Towards Food Security and the Second Green Revolution – Workshop on Extrusion Processing 2011 at Punjab Agricultural University in Ludhiana
Introduction :India has an urgent need to usher in a ‘Second Green Revolution’ with emphasis on value addition of agricultural commodities through food processing. The ambitious Vision 2015 plan of the Government of India envisions doubling food processing levels from its current level of 10 per cent to 20 per cent, and increasing value addition from 26 per cent to 35 per cent. It will also bid to see India’s share of global trade rise from 1.5 per cent to 3 per cent over the period. This workshop will focus on the important role of advanced food processing technologies like extrusion and also simple but elegant innovations developed by Indian research institutions that would aid businesses, ranging from small and medium scale enterprises to large companies, to participate in this national effort. Speakers from Kansas State University, and Indian research institutions and processing industry will provide their perspectives.
