How Evolution in Tech Changed the Indian Food Industry
India has been grappling with hunger issues since independence. Prior to independence, India's food assistance program was designed to meet the basic needs of the poorest members of society. Despite significant improvements in the numbers of hungry people in India between 1971 and 1991, the overall status of food security has remained unchanged and there has been no discernible decline in the prevalence of hunger over time.
India ranks 94th out of the 107 countries in 2020 Global Hunger Index scores. With a score of 27.2, India has a serious level of hunger — placing it at the lower end of the Human Development Index categories. However, there are ways in which India can improve its situation. Getting some help with science and technology would be the most effective way adequate support to those who are most vulnerable.
The benefits of technology are not restricted to the developed countries of the world. We can see these benefits in India today as various states and cities grappled with the problem of how to meet the demands of their growing populations while strengthening the economy at the same time.
With the help of our smartphones, we can obtain physical resources such as food and water, while facilitating our habit of seeking out information it also helps getting connectivity into our daily lives. Technology has created easy access to resources even in difficult situations: People with disabilities can use mobile apps to virtually travel to places such as theme parks and cultural attractions; people without housing can avail public transportation in cars or vans. Besides, people living in are where there is no restaurants can order and get their piping hot food in some hours. Technology has made it easier than ever for citizens to find and consume basic needs like food.
People can search and earn about recipes of different cuisines to chek out and serve others. The restaurant started using artificial intelligence and machine learning technology for better service and prompt delivery. Future farming is also an outcome of the tech revolution which reduced the cost of farming while dramatically increasing the amount of food we produce.
Innovation in food is largely thanks to science. More than 300 years ago, Englishman Daniel Defoe set out to prove that barley grown in England could grow better than barley is grown anywhere else. This led to the first law of agriculture: Good growing conditions determine whether a crop will grow well. This is still true today, but thanks to modern science and technology barley can be produced at higher yields in regions with less sunshine and fertilizers.
Science is improving the quality of food in our supermarkets by helping farmers in high production. Everything is being used to create new and better products all with the help of innovation and science. Technology is being used to improve products and processes across a variety of industries, including fast-food chains (where they use robotics to inspect burgers), drug stores that are using thermo-regulation technology to keep shoppers comfortable throughout their shopping experience (saving money by preventing jittery consumers from reaching for hidden snacks), and even prisons where microwaves are being used to teach cooking skills to inmates instead of using traditional methods that don't always produce the best results.
Innovation is the process by which an industry or product transforms to meet new needs and address challenges that were previously unaddressed. It can come from studying how different products or processes work, trying new ideas, listening to customers, and running experiments to develop new products or processes.
New Businesses Opportunities
Evolution is science and technologies has transformed businesses in a unique manner. New eCommerce trends have helped many organisations to thrive. Customers across the globe can now get products, in turn, companies can earn profit. Increased use of the internet has established various trends that have facilitated brands in gaining recognition. In the lockdown, Restaurateurs and eatery owners were fully dependent on mobile apps and websites for their business. Science and tech helped businesses in expansion and helped the middle to survive the pandemic.
