The Indian Government has announced plans to set up 30 mega food processing parks by the end of 2012.

Subodh Kant Sahay, federal food processing minister, said the move was part of the government’s 11th plan to boost the amount of food processed in India.

"Currently we process only about 10 per cent of the food produced in the country and this is expected to go up to 18 per cent by 2012," he said.
