  • Our Indian food culture is entirely unique from the rest of the world, not merely in terms of the rich spices that we’re famous for, but also in terms of the portion size & varieties served. Due to the consumption of larger meals at longer intervals, snacking has always been an instrumental part of an Indian’s day. Tremendous credit to the seismic lifestyle changes due to increasing disposable incomes, urbanization, availability of various sizes of snacks, competitive pricing and focus on regional audience, the Indian snacking industry has been on steroids for the past few years and is expected to grow with double digit CAGR for the next ten years. AFP Manufacturing Co. Pvt. Ltd. has been capturing a significant proportion of this growth by identifying the key growth drivers & challenges of the snacking industry and intelligently working towards making the ends meet.
