Union Minister for Food Processing Industries Harsimrat Kaur Badal has said that World Food India is not just an opportunity for the Centre but also a big platform for State Governments to push food processing sectors in their states. Exemplifying her statement she added that during the previous edition of World Food India in 2017, many States did brisk business and signed Memorandums of Understanding with international companies. To promote this idea the Ministry would be holding road shows in the states.
Badal was recently speaking at a meeting with Members of Parliament at the Parliament Annexe. The MPs were invited by the Ministry to spread awareness of the upcoming mega event World Food India 2019.
She said that people from across the world who want to source from India and invest in India will be seeking avenues for investment during World Food India 2019. She invited representations from their constituencies for participation in the event to foster tie ups between foreign investors and domestic avenues.
