Food Consultants in Nasik
Described as “The Wine Capital of India” by Alok Chandra of Business standard, Nasik is the major producer of grapes in India and is home to numerous wineries. With 8,64,00 hectares of land under cultivation, Nasik produces large quantities of cereals, milk, fruits, and vegetables worth processing.
The major strength of the food processing industries in the district lies in the following:
There are two food parks, large units of poultry viz. C & M Groups and Ashok Kumar Hatcheries, seven sugar factories, seven cold storage and various nurseries providing saplings for various fruits, managed by the Agriculture Department. To provide support to farmers, various tehsils have Agriculture Products Market Centers (APMC) which provides facilities to the farmers for marketing and storage of their products. With a gigantic market of Mumbai at its doorstep, Nasik has a large potential for food processing industries.
Initiatives are undertaken by Government
To make an environment more conducive for food processing industries, State Government of Maharashtra has announced package scheme of incentives. Financial incentives linked to fixed capital, power tariff subsidy and Industrial promotion subsidy (IPS) are among few of them. With the Single Window Clearances, registration and processing of application have been simplified. The state government intends to provide 5% subsidy on capital equipment for technology up gradation and 25% subsidy on capital equipment for cleaner production measures.
