As part of the major theme ‘Millets,’ the fortnight will include a millets food festival, the release of the Millets Book, and a variety of seminars focused on its health and nutritional advantages.

It is worth noting that the United Nations General Assembly recently passed a resolution, proposed by India and supported by more than 70 countries, proclaiming 2023 as the ‘International Year of Millets.’

With global demand nearing pre-pandemic levels, the industry is expected to see increasing investment in agricultural infrastructures such as irrigation facilities, warehousing, and cold storage.
