The premier edition of MILLETS INDIA, organized by NuernbergMesse India, will be held from 1st-3rd September at India Expo Mart, Greater Noida, Delhi NCR

SEVERAL FACTORS HAVE LED TO THE GROWING DEMAND FOR MILLETS

Traditionally, India has a History of High Millet Consumption and Cultivation. Resilient to climate change, Millets are hardy, resilient crops that have a low carbon and water footprint, can withstand high temperatures and grow on poor soils with little or no external inputs, which makes them ideal for a populated country like India.

2023 will be observed as the International Year of Millets after India's proposal to the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) was approved. The Indian policymakers have enacted several policies towards millet farming systems and to create an enabling environment for the farmers.

Today India stands well poised to raise output and drive exports to tap into a growing global market. The Global Millets Market was valued at $9.95 Billion in 2020 and is projected to reach $14.14 Billion in 2028, growing at a CAGR of 4.49% from 2021 to 2028

  • Growing inclination of urban population towards healthy food

  • Millets are nutritionally superior to major cereals and good for immunity

  • Gluten-free and non-allergenic

  • Contain calcium, iron and fibres which help to fortify essential nutrients
