Abstract
Food Processing is the alteration of agricultural product to stuff which have particular textural, sensory and nutritional properties using commercially feasible methods. Easy marketing and distribution tasks, consumer’s convenience, hygiene, increased food consistency, around the year availability of product, foods’ shelf life, are the key factors, which are attracting the food processing technology to be geared up. The importance of an agro-processing sector was first realized and documented after the disastrous famine of Bengal during the 1870s. In 1928, the Royal Commission on Agriculture set up by the British Government called for a scientific approach to the sector and stressed developing rural industries and co-operatives. The post-independence era in India witnessed rapid growth in the agro-processing sector, specifically during the 1980s. The main objective of the study is to identify the effects and importance of food processing. The present study is based on secondary data. The relevant material and secondary data were collected from various sources, official and unofficial both. Thereby suggesting policy implications on food are processing for better and smooth functioning.
