The Centre plans to bring in a National Food Processing Policy that shall focus on building India’s National Food Grid and National Cold Chain Grid and create retail markets at every nook and corner of the country.
The objective was stated by Minister of Food Processing Industries Harsimrat Kaur Badal as she unveiled the Draft Food Processing Policy of India and shared it with the state government representatives at a meeting with the state food processing ministers on World Food India in New Delhi recently.
The minister said, “The National Policy apart from documenting footprints of the food processing sector has been drafted considering best practices across states and the world.” She said the government is poised to bring about comprehensive national policy on food processing. “We would like all states to follow and be part of the comprehensive National Food Processing Policy. We have brought an Approach Paper on the National Food Processing Policy which is uploaded on the website of Ministry and have invited suggestions from stakeholders and public,” she said.
