Ultra mega food park in Andhra Pradech

Giving a boost to the agro-processing sector in the state, Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu on Monday laid the foundation stone for an ultra mega food park at Tangadacha, Jupadu Bungalow mandal, in Nandikotkur of Kurnool district.

The Jain Irrigation Food Park is being established on 758 acres of land, which will include a food processing unit that will involve in fruit, vegetable and spices processing, agri biotech and R&D.

“Given that food habits are changing with lifestyles and the demand for food is a growing concern, we believe R&D will help us understand the existing trends in food, understand the consumption of certain foods and predict the need for the future. We will continue to conduct research on various agricultural practices which will help us increase the yield,” Naidu said.

The ultra mega food park will cater to the growing needs of the agro-processing industry and will serve as the anchor for the district, he added. Later, the Chief Minister also laid foundation stone for the Gujarat Ambuja Exports facility with an investment of Rs 240 crore to be set up on around 200 acres of land.

“These investments reflect our decentralised development strategy for the state,” Naidu said, adding that the government has plans to set up food parks in every district.
