Banana Plantation - Making Headway in the Food Processing Industry | JainFarmFreshby JainFarmFresh Foods Ltd Largest food processor industry
Banana is one of the economically important agricultural products of our country. Available throughout the year, it is a high energy fruit which is an excellent source of vitamins, minerals, potassium, magnesium and many more essential nutrients. Famous for its delicious taste and the abundant health benefits, the banana plantation is a significant revenue earner for India, which ranks as the world’s largest producer of bananas.
Banana Plantations, being labour intensive, are also a tremendous economic booster as they generate employment. Coupled with this, they have a reasonably quick return on investment and are easily available throughout the year. Moreover, being a hardy plant, banana crop recovers quickly from natural calamities. All these attributes make banana cultivation a highly lucrative option.
Banana is a tropical fruit that grows best in rich, dark, fertile and well-drained soils with consistent moisture in the air and ground. The focus towards cultivating high-quality crop consistently, without exhausting our natural resources is a critical element of sustainable banana cultivation.
In keeping with the times, banana plantations are undergoing a significant shift and are becoming more technology and growth driven. Newer techniques, like ‘Tissue Culture’ make this step towards productive growth viable by lowering the risks involved in banana cultivation while ensuring a higher production of the fruit.
The high production of banana together with an increasing shift in the consumer tastes & preferences and the need for convenience is also redefining the way the fruit can be included in our lives. The consumer is looking at more innovative ways to consume a banana while retaining its nutritional and health benefits. As a result, production of a variety of processed banana products like puree, chips, powder and more is on the rise.
The Indian food processing industry is crucial to the economy’s growth and development. And in keeping with the demands of the increasingly quality conscious consumer, the companies are using modern and technologically driven processing techniques. This ensures high quality and longer shelf life of the agricultural produce like the banana.
