Summary  : The scope of the report is limited to the processing of fruits and vegetables only within the broad framework of food processing and the focus is restricted to dehydration, freezing, concentration, canned fruits and vegetables only. For each one of the segments various processes that are used in India and in other countries are detailed. The current market size is given and potential one is estimated.
Comparison of the processes or techniques in each segment is carried out with respect to applications, quality of the processed products and the commercial status. The comparative operational costs are also given.
Weaknesses in existing technologies for each one of the processes used are identified and assessment is made on the possible scope for improvements, Performance of machinery available in the country is also assessed.
Recommendations for specific aspects of improvements in various processes are tabulated, drawing attention to the research that needs to be carried out.
