India's North Eastern Region (NER) is a land of Magnificient Beauty. The region with its agro-friendly climate and agrarian roots has the potential to be a sunrise zone for food processing.
The various incentives extended by the Government of India has set the stage for making food processing a lucrative option in the area and for giving impetus to the development of food processing industry in NER. The Ministry is providing higher levels of subsidy in all the schemes, which will benefit not only the growers of agricultural produce but also creates employment in service sectors like transportation, packaging, advertising, and marketing.
