About the Workshop

In the recent years, high and persistent food inflation has been a matter of concern and in focus of policy discussions, in India. Fluctuations in food prices can cause distress among both consumers and producers, and are often exacerbated by trading networks especially in developing economies where marketplaces may not be operating under conditions of perfect competition for various contextual reasons.

Therefore, the price forecast plays a significant role in planning and control processes of the value-chain management in companies. Predictions of market competitiveness for dairy and food products are important determinants in marketing strategies and export opportunities assessment. For business operations in dairy and food products, the accuracy of the forecast is of crucial importance because of the volatile demand pattern influenced by various environmental conditions.
