Naveen Patnaik demands National Institute of Food Technology

Bhubaneswar:16/6/17: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Friday requested the central government to sanction a National Institute of Food Technology, Entrepreneurship and Management (NIFTUM) in the state.

In view of the fast growing agro-food processing sector, there is an imminent need for setting up a National Institute of Food Processing in the state, said Patnaik in a letter to Union Food Processing Industries Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal.

He said that the state with 10 agro-climatic zones has a huge potential for the food processing sector.

Patnaik said the state is not only surplus in production of rice, but also has a substantial output of maize, horticulture produce, spices like ginger and turmeric besides seafood items.
