Meerut GDP 2027

Food Processing Industry

Current Status: Food processing is a sunrise sector. The growth potential for this sector is enormous as the demand for processed food products is increasing in the domestic as well as in the overseas markets.

Support Required: The State Government could promote this sector through public investment and by facilitating private investment in development of processing industry and supportive infrastructure. Private/ Public/Joint Sector initiative for development of cold chains, grading, and transportation and post-harvest storage facilities will be given strong impetus.Meerut being a leading District in agriculture and horticulture should have a Mega Food Park.
