India’s food and beverage industry currently stands at £25 billion and is expected to register a growth of 18%, reaching £41 billion by 2018. British products are in especially high demand and this creates an exciting opportunity for British food and drink exporters to explore this growing market.
A major deterrent has been the complex regulations and labelling laws surrounding exports to India which have caused significant problems to foreign food and drink manufacturers in the past. In particular the Food Safety and Standard Authority of India’s (FSSAI) new law on tougher regulations for food imports, has caused concern amongst international food exporters. Learn how to deal with these new rules in the simplest and most effective way.
