In the absence of modern harvesting technologies, post-harvest and cold chain infrastructure, the sector experiences high proportion of wastage. Given the scenario, the Government of India has been giving a push to creation of enabling infrastructure for Food Processing.
  • Government of India has approved setting up of 42 MFPs in the country, out of which 41 have been sanctioned by MoFPI. Of the 41 MFPs, 9 have already commenced operations. The parks have more than 1,200 developed plots (of approximately 1 acre each) with basic infrastructure enabled, that entrepreneurs can lease for the setting up of food processing and ancillary units.
