State Govt to set up vegetable & fruit hubs
The State Government is planning to set up vegetable and fruit hubs in the districts in the western part of the State, said the Food Processing Minister at a recent seminar organised by the Merchants’ Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MCCI).
He said that the western districts have the potential for satisfying even the entire demand of the State, if all forms of assistance are provided. Towards that end, the government has planned to set up the hubs.
The minister asked private investors to invest more in agriculture, which would help in the State realising its full potential. He said that the government would provide all manner of help for connecting the farmers with the investors.
Since 68 per cent of the State’s population do work related to agriculture, the State has a huge potential in the latter.
