Manish Goyal ,CEOThe growth of packaged food market attributes to innovations in processing techniques for extending the shelf life of food products. Improvement in retail infrastructure, which has increased the availability of packaged foods with options of free home delivery and different promotional offers, has opened avenues for the growth of the packaged food market.

India’s first quinoa brand, Queen’s Quinoa, has specialized in producing Quinoa and its value-added products since 2013. The company serves its superfoods, super seeds and super snacks to more than a million customers across airlines, cinema halls, hotels, modern trade and online.
