India’s’s First Mega Food Park Opens in Andhra Pradesh

Agriculture and Food Processing Industries Minister, Shri Sharad Pawar inaugurated the Srini mega  food park at Chittoor in Andhra Pradesh  9th July 2012. This is the first mega food park in the country.


From seed to shelf, Srini Food Park facilitates end-to-end food processing with beneficial forward and backward linkages. On par with software parks, this new-age facility is equipped with Central Processing Centre and Primary Processing Centres. It aims at becoming a pioneering infrastructure enabler and facilitator for the Food Processing Industry.

As a model `Mega Food Park` and the first of its kind in India, Srini provides state-of-the-art food processing infrastructure designed as per global standards and develops a veritable market place with common facilities on the lines of a software park or a textile park. Mega Food Park is promoted by experienced professionals and supported by the government (the Ministry of Food Processing Industries and the Andhra Pradesh Infrastructure Investment Corporation) and is intended to benefit all components of the value chain.


Nestled in a sprawling 147-acre space, Srini Food Park provides world-class facilities for pulping, IQF, bottling, tetra packing, modular cold storage, warehousing and advanced testing lab. It enables basic and supply chain infrastructure, cluster farming and is ably backed by field collection centers, self help groups and individual farmers. Srini Food Park will empower food industry with state-of-the-art infrastructure and quality raw material sourcing.


With the highest growth in the fruits and vegetables sector (20%) and with Chittoor being the largest fruits and vegetables cluster in India, this Mega Food Park becomes an ideal destination for food processing units.
