“It was a long pending demand from the turmeric industry that there should be one inclusive platform where all the stakeholders have the opportunity to meet and discuss all the issues related to turmeric as both a crop and as an industrial commodity. We are highly optimistic about this initiative and believe that the industry will derive valuable insights to work upon in the near future,” said Arun Raste, Director, NICR.

The Global Turmeric Conference will also highlight how new technology, new processing practices, and input developments are revolutionising the turmeric business. Weather conditions have a significant impact on crop cultivation, and the conference will offer insight on their impact on turmeric planting. Furthermore, it will delve into turmeric’s new horizons, where ideas and tactics to boost industrial growth within the turmeric sector will be addressed.
