Government wishes to finalise a food processing policy by November. This policy is aimed at developing the sector by minimizing wastages and ensuring better prices for farmers, while ensuring availability of quality, affordable produce to consumers. Currently, there is no uniform policy and this scheme will drive the National Food Policy. Government is also looking at making food more competitive by using modern technology.
