A booming middle class has contributed to the strong growth of the food retail industry in India in the last couple of years. Traditional or independent food retailers remain the strongest segment in the industry as the Indian market is still quite dependent on purchasing through these traditional modes of food retail. Modern retailing still only accounts for a very small proportion of the market, though the segment is growing in size as rapid urbanization is taking place in the metro cities such as Delhi and Mumbai.
