Ministry of Food Processing Industries is implementing Mega Food Park Scheme (MFPS) to create modern infrastructure for the food processing industries since 2008. This scheme is now a component of the new Central Sector Umbrella Scheme – Pradhan Mantri Kisan Sampada Yojana (PMKSY). The Mega Food Park Scheme (MFPS) aims at providing modern infrastructure facilities for food processing along the value chain from farm to market.

As on date, Ministry has accorded final approval to 37 MFPs in 23 States/UTs which are under various stages of implementation. Out of this, 19 MFPs are operational. Total 42 Mega Food Parks (MFPs) were envisaged by the Government. As per the scheme guidelines, each fully operational Mega Food Park will provide direct/indirect employment to about 5000 persons. The scheme of Mega Food Park has the primary objective of providing modern infrastructure facilities for the food processing along the value chain from the farm to the market. It will include creation of infrastructure near farm (i.e. collection centres and Primary Processing centres), transportation, logistics and centralized processing centres etc. This will have impact on increased realization of farmers, reduction in wastage and creation of an efficient supply chain backed by collection centres, primary processing centres and logistic infrastructure.
