T-Food Processing Policy
Food processing has been identified as one of the 14 thrust sectors for the state in the industrial policy framework of 2014. The sector forms a key linkage between agriculture and industry. Food processing contributes both to agriculture and manufacturing. Apart from its high contribution in Gross Value Addition (GVA), the sector is highly employment intensive and helps generate jobs in the rural areas close to the agricultural produce. As per the annual report ministry of food processing industries 2016-17, the food processing sector generates the highest employment per unit of capital invested as compared to all other major manufacturing industries.
The overreaching vision of Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchayee Yojana (PMKSY) will be to ensure access to some means of protective irrigation to all agricultural farms in the country, to produce ‘per drop more crop’, thus bringing much desired rural prosperity.
