World Spice Congress

The World Spice Congress (WSC) has evolved to become THE global platform for discussion and interaction between importers, exporters, regulators and other stakeholders of the spice industry.  The world is experiencing rapid changes in food safety issues as health authorities worldwide have embarked on a mission to make food safer for their countrymen. India’s internal food laws are now equally stringent. However,  practical or utopian the new norms may be, the WSC 2016 will deliberate extensively on this as well as other issues and also bring the delegates up to speed on how India plans to make its food chain safe, reliable, consistent and most importantly – sustainable. The WSC 2016 will discuss crops, markets, recent trends in the spice industry and its humungous challenges. It will also explore feasible ideas and methods to help implement the concept of “Grow with India” and to assure the safe and clean delivery of spices on a consistent basis and in the most practical manner.  
This much sought after event of the spice industry “World Spice Congress 2016” is scheduled to be held on 27, 28, 29 February, 2016 at Ahmedabad in the State of Gujarat just after the conclusion of “Gulf Food 2016” in Dubai.

“Target 2020: Clean, Safe and Sustainable Supply Chain” is the theme for the World Spice Congress 2016.  

Considering the vast potential of the industry, there is a growing need to establish an efficient and customer-centric supply chain network to ensure production of clean & high quality spices. This need is pressing particularly in the case of seed spices such as Coriander, Cumin, Fennel, Fenugreek, Ajowan, Celery etc. In lieu of this, the choice of having the WSC at Ahmedabad in the State of Gujarat, where seed spices are cultivated in abundance is appropriate. 

Senior Leader is expected to inaugurate the WSC 2016 and to interact with the overseas delegates in particular to assure the export of safe and clean spices from India at all times. 

The exhibition conducted during WSC 2016 shall offer opportunities for interested parties to showcase their capacities and capabilities to help project a sustainable future for the industry. Moreover, it is an opportunity for the global community to come together, renew and strengthen their relationships to ensure long-term growth of the industry.
