Organized Agri-Food Retailing in India – Report Summary

The value of retail in India is estimated to be over Rs.17,000 billion in 2008-09. Of this, food retailing constitutes over 60%. The retail trade in India is the second largest employer after agriculture, employing 7.2% of total workers (as on 2007-08) and is expected to play a significant role in employment creation in the years to come. The overall retail trade including the food retail is set to witness a tremendous growth in the near future and is expected to almost double by 2020 from its current levels. As we move into the new decade, we have seen a rapid growth of modern formats in food retailing with the emergence of the organised food retail sector.

The study presented in this book brings out several findings that seem to have serious policy implications. The organised retail currently accounts for just 5 per cent of the total retail trade. Agri-food retailing, which accounts for 18 per cent of the organised retail today is likely to reduce its share considerably by 2020 on account of a rather moderate growth within the organized agri-food retailing sector compared to overall organised retail.

The study has identified major impediments, especially structural, hampering the growth of organised retailing in the agri food sector. Apart from this, the study touches upon critical issues related to agri-food retailing namely credit, employment, infrastructure development, supply chain and risks associated with its development.
