Govt. embarks on drafting food processing policy

Industries and IT Minister K.T. Rama Rao announced that the State government is preparing a comprehensive action plan to promote food processing industry to meet the expected demand in the coming days.

Accordingly, it has been decided to provide subsidies and incentives to those coming forward to invest in the sector. The government examined the best practices within the country and abroad in this direction for preparing an attractive policy governing the sector.

The Minister was participating in a high-level meeting of Ministers and officials to discuss the Food Processing Policy here on Wednesday. He made a presentation on existing scenario wherein the State did not have food processing capacity to match the growth in agriculture and allied sectors.
