Government Proposes Food Processing Cluster in Africa at Rs 117 Crore

India is investing in African agriculture through the creation of a food-processing cluster of countries. The investment will amount to about Rs 117 crore and allow for the development of infrastructure for “cold storage, food testing labs, incubation centers, standard designed factories, pre-cooling chambers and other modern technologies used by the industry.” Currently a bid is being held to appoint a project management agency to help with the implementation of the project. The African Union will be responsible for the selection of the location and will provide land cost-free.
