3

Bangladesh has a well-established food

processing sector, which heavily relies on agricultural production

The sector accounts for 22% of total manufactured products, 20% of total labor force and 5% of total GDP equal

to around 4.48 bill USD

Focus is on domestic demand. Excluding scrimps export of processed food products is limited and mainly targeted ethnic products, not the

mainstream international markets

Besides scrimps main products are agriculturally based as oils and bakeries, but also fishery plays an important role

II: A NUMBER OF OPPORTUNITIES EXISTS WITHIN PROCESSED FOODS Main challenge in the fishing industry is

Main challenge in the fishing industry is lack of raw materials, due to high national and international demand. This gives opportunities:

Investments in hatcheries and ponds etc. (grow supply base, develop contract farming etc.)

Technology introduction to increase effectiveness in trawl fishing and inland fishing

Technology introduction to increase utilization of fish waste

introduction to increase utilization of fish waste Main business opportunities in the fruit and vegetable

Main business opportunities in the fruit and vegetable industries are:

…AND THE POTENTIAL TO GROW EVEN FURTHER IS VERY SIZEABLE The potentials for high volume export

The potentials for high volume export in the processed food sector have not been exploited to the fullest

Focus has mainly been on ethnical products and export to a limited numbers of countries. There is limited export to the EU, Italy and the UK are major importers

With only smaller changes in product range and standards it is believed that there is high potential for entering the US and EU mainstream markets with processed food products

Investment climate in Bangladesh is very attractive. One main goal of government is to attract foreign investors and boost export

12.5% cash incentives to export of frozen shrimp and fish and 20% cash incentives to export of agro processed products is given

1

The sector has further been declared as a

“Thrust Sector” and therefore receives

preferential treatments including income tax exemption, tax return, cheaper air transport, low interest rates and export

assistance

2

Bangladesh is also part of EU’s GSP and EBA programmes, which opens for duty and quota free access to the EU market

The industry is already well established and optimism is strong as local demand is growing as Bangladesh is experiences +5% yearly growth in GDP

Only minor product adaptation and staff

training is needed in order to explore new

markets

Large amounts of seasonal fruits and vegetables are not utilized today and are just waiting for the processing industry to get

started

Demand in the fishing industry is outweighing existing supply

Bangladesh has a very cost-efficient labor force

With 166,000 km 2 of sea area and more than 200 rivers with a total length of 22,155 km Bangladesh is endowed with abundant water resources

White fish and shrimps are available more or less in every district of the country making fishing one of the most important industrial sectors in Bangladesh

The sector contributes with ~5% to GDP and accounts for 4.3% of all foreign exchange earnings

1.2 mill people are engaged in the sector on full-time and ~10 mill on part-time basis.

8% of the total population is directly or

indirectly engaged in the industry

Bangladeshi waters are rich in nutrient creating favorable fishing conditions

Marine fishing includes industrial fishery with large trawlers and artisanal fishery

with mechanized and non-mechanized

boats

In FY07-08 34,159 MT fish was produced by trawl fishing and 463,414 by artisanal fishing

Growth of marine fishing has been moderate about 9% during the last five years (trawl fishing 5% and artisanal fishing 10%)

The main fish types caught in sea are Illish, Bombay Duck, Pomfret, Jew fish and Sea Cat fish

Modern fishing trawlers were introduced in the eighties and the fleet has grown rapidly in the last 10 years

In 1997 there were only 14 white fish trawlers in Bangladesh and 41 shrimp trawlers. In 2009 the figures are 133 and 49

182 of the vessels have onboard fish processing facilities

Out of the 182 trawlers and vessels, only 8 of them are mid-water fishing vessels, the rest are bottom-water fishing vessels being very damaging to the environment

Government has not since 2005 given license to new fishing vessels, but it is expected that around 40 mid-water licenses will be given in months to come

Persistent shortage of fish supply is a major issue as local and international demand is increasing even more then supply

Need for new machinery, technology and development of products and marketing for the EU-market is obvious

Quality standard has to be improved and regularly monitored

Lack of electricity and gas supply and
