Abstract: About 13 million people are employed directly and 35 million people are employed indirectly in the food processing industry. 2.20% of fruits and vegetables, 35% of milk, 21% of meat, and 6% of poultry are processed at all. The amount of value addition is merely 20%. About 14% of the manufacturing Gross Domestic Product was provided by the food processing industry. According to the Ministry of Food Processing Industries\\\\\\\' classification, this sector encompasses consumer items such packaged foods, drinks, and drinking water in addition to dairy, fruits and vegetable processing, grain processing, meat and poultry processing, and fisheries. These two processes are (a) manufactured processes and (b) other processes with value addition. The county\\\\\\\'s economic development and expansion depend heavily on agriculture. A little over 12% of all exports come from the agricultural sector. In 2015–16, India\\\\\\\'s agricultural exports made up around 2.2% of all agricultural exports globally. The domestic price of goods during bulk exports, such as sugar, wheat, rice (both basmati and non-basmati), etc., is higher in contrast to international pricing, which reduces the commercial competitiveness of our exports. Therefore, the government is implementing a number of policy changes to increase the export quantity and value of agricultural products from India while also stabilizing the nation\\\\\\\'s balance of payments. Due to factors like increased foreign demand, exports of agricultural products increased by 35.76% in the first quarter (April to June) of 2021–22 compared to the same time in 2020–21. Wheat, vegetable oils, other cereals, non-basmati rice, and molasses were the key factors driving an increase in agri-exports in 2020–21, and other cereals, meat, dairy, and poultry during the first quarter of 2021–22. Exports are a significant source of foreign currency and are vital to the expansion of the Indian economy. India is a significant exporter of agricultural products, contributing to its strong foreign currency reserves. The rise in agricultural production has the biggest influence on how agriculture develops.
