In the protein category, Cargill Foods may introduce a soya- or grain- or pulses-based product
Cargill food India, a local unit of the largest closely held company in the US, is expanding its food retailing business in the country to include more edible oil brands, wheat derivatives, and vegetable proteins.
Deoki Muchcal , MD, Cargill Foods India said “We intend to introduce more products into fats, carbohydrates and proteins. These will serve the needs of a typical Indian household’s kitchen. The company also believes that there is space for a healthy brand of oil that would blend some essential fats. We are going to create edible oil products suited for local consumption. We are not a country where we eat a lot of salad with an oil topping. We like to cook, so we will come with a formulation that enables housewives to cook, maintain health quotient and manage the taste. In the protein category, Cargill Foods may introduce a soya- or grain- or pulses-based product. In carbohydrates, we are already there with wheat flour and now we will look into derivatives with a health quotient, such as sooji or dalia.”
