Agritex India 2017, India’s leading international exhibition and conference on agriculture, dairy and food processing, starts in Hyderabad tomorrow and will run until Saturday. The UK is country partner for the event and the Department for International Trade (DIT) has made sure Britain is well represented.
A total of 13 innovative British companies are set to participate in the conference. These firms specialize in a wide range of areas including animal science, water conservation, silo storage systems, organic farming, agricultural marketing communications, sustainable packaging technologies, agricultural skills and training, cold chain technologies, and smart agriculture.
Andrew Fleming, British deputy high commissioner in Hyderabad, said all of the UK firms attending the trade show were looking to establish business collaborations in India.
