While each food is ‘nutritious’, an excess and thus unbalanced food system, affecting mostly the urban population, is an issue that needs to be addressed. Thus, awareness needs to be created among consumers as to what constitutes to a balanced diet and how the processed food industry can personalize their food intake. In this light, F1rst gathers the top-most food industry professionals for an open panel discussion on ‘nutrition and communication’ of the Indian processed food industry.

The food industry should start communicating the nutritional aspects of food to the consumers in a transparent manner. This must start from the top companies who set an example to other smaller companies. The key question is ‘should the food industry continue to do what it has been doing all along?’ or ‘should it start communicating in a more honest and direct manner, particularly about nutrition?’.

As the world moves away from starvation to adequate food to even excess food in many cases, the need for nutrition and proper food has become a strong demand from all the stakeholders, and most of all, the consumers. In parallel, the role played by the processed food sectors is increasing very rapidly in India, and along with it the responsibilities. These responsibilities are multi-fold, but we would like to focus on two specific aspects – nutrition and communication. Even as social media is forcing companies across the world to communicate in a transparent and honest fashion, the focus on the processed food sector with respect to nutrition and the transparency in communication is increasingly being felt across the world. A proactive move by the food industry in order to take up the responsibility as to increase the credibility of consumers and other stakeholders.
