AGRO-ALLIED INDUSTRIES


AGRO-ALLIED OR AGRO-BASED INDUSTRIES

MEANING OF AGRO ALLIED INDUSTRIES

WHAT IS AGRO ALLIED INDUSTRY?
Agro-allied industries also called Agro based industries are industries which depend on agriculture for their raw materials in order to operate successfully.
In other words, agro-based industries require the supply of agricultural raw materials in order to provide some finished products that are essential for human and animal consumption.

Agro Allied industries or Agro-based industries are industries whose primary raw materials are agricultural products. Agriculture provides vital resources and raw materials to the industrial sector

INTRODUCTION TO AGRO-ALLIED INDUSTRIES

Food is the third most essential need for human survival after oxygen and water. The first and second goals of the sustainable development goals (SDG’s) are centred on poverty eradication and food security. The Agro- allied industry is a collection of companies engaged in a high- scale production, processing, and packaging of food with the use of modern equipment and methods aimed at achieving these goals.It is also a vital integral part of any nation’s economic growth. A major objective of the macroeconomic policy is fostering economic growth thereby creating a suitable environment for agro-allied industries to thrive. However, it is almost impossible to speak about the agro- allied industry without taking into cognizance the availability of agricultural products, its productivity, quantity and quality. Transportation cost is minimised with proper sitting of industries close to the location of raw materials

(2) Provision of Food: Agriculture also provides food for industrial workers.
(3) Provision of Raw Materials: Agriculture provides raw materials such as cocoa, cotton, palm produce and groundnut for industries.
(4) Shifting of Factors of Production: Agricultural development allows for a shift of factors of production like land, labour and capital to industry.
(5) Competition for Labour: Both agriculture and industry compete for labour.
(6) Development of Industrial Sector: Rise in agricultural income due to efficient and economic factor combination brings about development of industrial sector of the economy.
