IICMA is the APEX body of Indian ice cream industry very actively working for the betterment of the industry. The ice cream industry in India is growing with 15 percent YOY rate of growth. There is still a big room of growth yet to be achieved. The main hurdles are cold chain and automation. India is still lacking behind in advance cold chain availability across the country. Resulting into unviability for the manufacturers of the ice creams. Usually for market expansion you need to have strong cold chain network from Factory till the consumer’s hand. But in the past few years situation has improved with better infrastructure and roads network.
Ice cream manufacturer have also started processing big capacities in almost every state of the country. Automation has played a very important role but there needs to be constant efforts to increase production and supply in deeper parts of the country.
