INDUSTRY STRUCTURE AND DEVELOPMENTS:
The Indian food and grocery market is the worlds sixth largest, with retail contributing 70 per cent of the sales. The Indian food processing industry accounts for 32 per cent of the countrys total food market, one of the largest industries in India and is ranked fth in terms of production, consumption, export and expected growth.

Indias organic food market is expected to increase by three times by 2020.
Looking to the rise in nuclear family and working husband-wife working culture will lead to shift packaged floor and ready to use/eat meal. This will going to help a lot to the packaged food industry in future.
OPPORTUNITIES AND THREATS:
The local and export market for agro commodities has grown appreciably for countries like India and export and import of agriculture items have increased significantly over the past several years. Over a period of several decades the Company has developed a strong reputation in industry. Supply of raw material in agriculture based industry always depends upon the monsoon and as per projections it is going to be good in coming year. Company is expecting good business in running financial year.
Export of Soya bean oil and DOC always depends upon production of soyabean in other countries as well.
The global food industries are extremely competitive, hygienic and health conscious and Indian manufacture and exporter have to compete with low profit margin and unorganized set-up in India. Small our units are big competitor in local markets. Being in agricultural food industry availability of raw material is mostly dependent upon monsoon, which always unpredictable.
SEGMENT- WISE PERFORMACE OR PRODUCT-WISE PERFORMANCE:

The overall performance of the Company was affected mainly by slow movement of debtor, increase in amount of idle and spoiled stock for longer period, non-utilisation of production capacity and increased interest burden on debt requirement for high working capital needs.
Domestic market and export has been on downswing during the last two year. But industry as a whole and after implementation of GST it seems that it may get momentum in current year. Development of nuclear family concept is the basic line for packed food industry i.e. Atta and other packed basic food. With high protein soya products we are looking forward towards export market with good amount of margin.
