Millet Cooked Product Display Challenge

The International Organics and Millets 2019 Trade Fair is being hosted in 'Namma Bengaluru' for the second consecutive year. The Organics & Millets 2018 International Trade Fair was a huge success. The trade fair organized by the Department of Agriculture, Govt. of Karnataka has been successful in drawing the attention at the global level. Today almost each and every household across the State and the country is well aware of the importance of millets.

The millet food products exhibition and competition was one of the highlight during the last International Trade Fair, which has inspired us to take it to the next level this year. The Millet Food Product Challenge this year will be held in two categories: a) Savoury; b) Baked Products.

Savoury– Snack or appetizer usually salty and spicy.

Baked Products– Products made using baking as the method of cooking.
