Ludhiana, May 28, 2019 (Yes Punjab News)

Punjab Chief Minister Capt. Amarinder Singh would lay the foundation stone of a food processing plant belonging to CN IFFCO Pvt. Ltd., a joint venture between India’s leading cooperative, the Indian Farmers Fertiliser Cooperative Ltd. (IFFCO) and Spain’s leading food processing company, Congelados de Navarra (CN Corp), at village Saijjo Majra and Rattipur near Samrala in district Ludhiana on May 30, 2019.

State government’s “Invest Punjab” is facilitating the project. The project would be benefiting over 10,000 farmers of the region, besides generating direct and indirect employment for more than 2,500 persons.

Deputy Commissioner Ludhiana Mr Pradeep Kumar Agrawal informed that this state-of-the-art food processing plant, spread over an area of 55 acres, would be constructed with an initial investment of around Rs 550 Crore and would commence production within next 2 years’ time.

The plant would have a processing capacity of 80,000 MT per annum and will produce individual quick-freezing vegetables, French fries and potato snacks. The raw vegetables required for the plant would be procured locally (within a radius of 150 kilometres from the plant) thereby benefiting farmers of the region.

With sharp focus on training of farmers, implementation of modern technology and know-how (of CN Corp. and IFFCO) the project would boost overall infrastructure within the agro-economic ecosystem of the region thereby contributing positively to the GDP of Punjab.

A review meeting in this regard was chaired by ADC Khanna Mr Jaspal Singh Gill in the office of SDM Samrala today, where necessary directions were issued to the officials. SDM Samrala Miss Geetika Singh was also present in the meeting.
