In a world where food safety standards are constantly changing and the industrial environment is constantly evolving, addressing the concerns and imbalances of the industry by the stakeholders is not a choice but an imperative. In addition to this, ensuring the sustainability of the crops and improving the livelihood of the farmers also becomes a collective responsibility. It is in this context that the All India Spices Exporters Forum came up with the International Spice Conference to provide a platform for all stake holders of the industry including the business houses, the spice associations, the policy makers, the farmers and the end users, to address and interact.
The ISC 2018, the third edition, was a success with over 800 delegates from 45 nationalities, 50 speakers and 38 exhibitors.The fourth edition, ISC 2019, is planned in the CITY OF PEARLS, the emerging silicon valley of India, Hyderabad; the capital of Telangana, India. The theme for the conference is ‘Challenges of Change, Redefining the Value Chain’. There are significant challenges the industry foresees from changing consumer needs and the way digital advancements are transforming business, distribution and how governments enforce these changes. The intent is to look at these changes and challenges and see how the industry can adapt its value chain to survive and flourish. The conference will have interactive presentations, panel discussions, audio visual presentations and will also offer optional side trips like business tours to spice growing areas and sightseeing trip to the marvels of Hyderabad.
