Due to high concentration of rice mills in the area, a lot of emerging & wannabe entrants are also expected to participate & visit the exhibition.
Most of the rice millers are suppliers to the government for PDS. But, a recent ruling by the government has made it mandatory to keep sorters in the mill to supply to the government. As far technology used in these rice mills is concerned; these rice mills are not using hi-tech rice milling equipments like sorters, silos etc. There is a huge gap between available technology for the rice milling and its uses in these so-called modern rice mills. Only, very few rice mills are up-to-date. This provides a window of opportunities for the rice milling technology providers to reach to this overwhelming cluster of rice mills.
