“To provide much needed thrust to the food sector and to have a better outreach and more flexibility to suit local needs, the Union Ministry of Food Processing Industries launched a new centrally sponsored scheme 'National Mission on Food Processing' in cooperation with the State Governments during 2012-13,” he said.
The state level Committee today held detailed deliberations on wide ranging issues connected with formulating a proper and comprehensive course of action for the successful implementation of this scheme, an official statement said.
To create road map for Food processing sector in the state with a vision document it was proposed to engage a professional Project Management Agency by calling bids at national Level.
