About Rice Milling Industry in India

Rice is India’s preeminent crop, and is the staple food for almost 65% of the population of India. India has the world’s largest area under rice cultivation and is 2nd largest producer of rice, accounting for 20% of global rice production.

Rice milling is the oldest and the largest agro processing industry in India. At present it has a turnover of more than 255 billion per annum. It processes about 85 million tonnes of paddy per year. Paddy grain is milled either in raw condition or after par-boiling, mostly by single hullers of which over 82,000 are registered in the country. Apart from it there are also a large number of unregistered single hulling units in the country.

A good number (60%) of these are also linked with par-boiling units and sun-drying yards. Most of the tiny hullers of about 250-300 kg/hr capacities are employed for custom milling of paddy. Apart from it, double hulling units number over 2,600 units, under run disc shellers-cum-cone polishers numbering 5,000 units and rubber roll shellers-cum-friction polishers numbering over 10,000 units are also present in the country. Further over the years there has been a steady growth of improved rice mills in the country. Most of these have capacities ranging from 2 tonnes/ hr to 10 tonnes/ hr.

The technology required for the ginning & pressing operations are De-stoner, Paddy Husker and Paddy Separator, Vertical Whitener, Humidifier Air Polisher, Grain color sorter, Pre-cleaner, Electric motors, Airlocks, gear motors, couplings, elevators, sifters, graders, blowers, electronic weighing and bagging system, slat conveyor, Rotary screw air compressor, DG set, weigh bridge, electrical infrastructure and other accessories etc.

Rice Milltech Expo in Rudrapur will provide the platform for the Rice & Grain machinery and milling industries with an opportunity to show case the entire spectrum of related products, technology and services under one roof

An interactive platform for launching new products to a specifically targeted audience in this highly potential region. A right place to access the market needs and opportunities and place. Rice Milltech will inspire thousands of millers, processors to transform their age old huller mills in to modern ones.

Indian agriculture is now going through critical times. On the one hand, relying on the strength of Green Revolution strategy and having emerged as an exporter of grains and food products, the government is keen to enact a Food Security law to ensure availability of food grains to every individual in the country. On the other hand, the weaknesses in the implementation of the strategy are showing up in a glaring manner. One such instance is the huge losses of procured food grains for want of proper storage facilities.

The need of the hour is to increase productivity of grains and build an effective supply chain to ensure what is produced in the farm reaches the consumer in good shape. In fact, what is imperative is to plug every loophole in the food production and distribution system, which means use of effective available technology and building of modern storage system.

As per trade sources, India wastes food grains worth huge amounts every year because of weaknesses in storage system & techniques and deficiencies in supply chain. It is unfortunate in a country where a sizeable section of the population goes to bed hungry.

Rice Milltech Expo presents the finest marketing opportunity to grow your business in North India. If you are a supplier to the Food Grain Industry, make the right move of investing to exhibit at this event.

Rice Milltech Expo presents you the best opportunity to stay ahead in business and of your competition.
