Rising precedence on food industry over the last decade has been more than visible to us. Food Market constantly sees new faces, in the form of startups, a new foreign venture, consultancies, food bloggers, investors and more. Every industry is made, not by the ones who have the ground covered, but more by those who have the audacity and the tenacity to venture into the land and create a foothold for themselves.
As a part of the Food Industry, it becomes the responsibility of the stakeholders to encourage such startups.
