I need to research the fresh tomato supply chain in India for a potential investment in this country.
Here are the objectives:
1) research online any reports you can find on the fresh vegetable market in India (existing suppliers, major customers, volumes and pricing for premium tomato varieties). We are mostly interested in beefsteak tomatoes, tomatoes-on-the-vine, cherry tomatoes and plum tomatoes.
2) research who the biggest retail stores are in India (supermarkets/hypermarkets) and also restaurant franchises (mcdonalds, subway, burger king, etc), and find their procurement managers on LinkedIn.com . Examples:
3) Identify who some of the leading growers are in India (i.e. largest companies / farmers who grow fresh vegetables).
