|Abstract:||The present status of food processing industry in India is delineated to pinpoint the importance of mitigation of food losses, extent of value addition, byproduct utilization and trade of processed food products. The opportunities in food proc-essing in India have been identified and power of India in traditional foods has been specified with a view to capturing na-tional and global markets. For successful exploitation of the opportunities in food processing industries, it is essential to act in terms of intellectual property protection and a huge awareness that need to be brought about amongst the academia, indus-try and research organizations. This will have an exponential growth in the human resource development, establishment of food processing parks/corridors, development of entrepreneurship, strengthening of internal chain, quality of the processed products, timely delivery of the products, sustainable technology and convergence of technologies as well as emergence of products/processes by interfacing and networking globally and perhaps niche itself for Indians potential in the world market.|
