World's largest food & herbal park inaugurate

United News of India

Hardwar, Jan 5:

Patanjali Food and Herbal Park, stated to be the biggest such food unit in the world, was inaugurated here today by Mr Subodh Kant Sahay, Union Minister for Food Processing Industry.
The 500-crore park, set up by yoga guru Swami Ramdev, about 20 kms from here, will provide direct employment to 7000 people.
Swami Ramdev said his main objective was to provide remunerative prices to the farmers for their produce of cereals, pulses and vegetables. It was a step from 'yog kranti to krishi kranti' with an objective of prosperity for the farmers in particular and the people in general.
Swami Ramdev said 150 tonnes of Arogya atta, juices and other processed items such as cosmetics would be produced by using 500 tonnes of raw material.
Speaking on the occasion the Union Minister said in other countries 80 to 90 per cent aggricultural products were processed, while in India it was 10 per cent only. If the produce of the farmers is processed, there is a value addition to it and which can lead to prosperity in the country.
Food processing industry has great potential. During recent years there has been 14 per cent growth in this industry in the country, when other sectors have registered only seven per cent growth rate, Mr Sahay said.
There is a great need to commercialise aggriculture and make it market friendly. He said his ministry had made a plan to set up one food park in every state of the country. The experiment of the mega food park of Swami Ramdev will serve as a model and will be replicated in other states as well.
The inaugural function was presided by Dr Ramesh Pokhrial 'Nishank', Chief Minister of Uttarakhand, Prof Prem Prakash Dhumal, Chief Minister of Himachal Pradesh and Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh, who invited Swami Ramdev to set up the food parks in their states too.

Hardwar: Despite being considered the world's second largest producer of food grains, the country suffers from paucity of proper storage facilities, Union Minister for Food Processing Subodh Kant Sahay has said.

Making the point while inaugurating noted Yoga guru Baba Ramdev's food park here today, Sahay described it as the world's biggest facility of its kind.

The food park, built under the aegis of Baba Ramdev's Patanjali Yog Peeth, is a unique achievement for the entire country as it will help fight India's lack of proper storage facilities for food grains.

"This is the world's biggest food park and no multi-national company has the ability to build a facility of this size. This could be possible only because of Baba Ramdev's efforts," the Union Minister said.

The Chief Ministers of Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh were also present on the occasion where Ramdev announced that his next food park will be set up in Himachal Pradesh.

Speaking on the occasion Uttarakhand Chief Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank described Baba Ramdev as the pride of his state while Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan, who also addressed the gathering, invited the Yoga Guru to visit his state for the benefit of the people there.

Haridwar: The Patanjali Food and Herbal Park, being set up here by Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev, will ameliorate farmers' economic situation and create over 20,000 jobs in Uttarakhand, Minister of State for Food Processing Industries Subhodh Kant Sahai today said.

“With the launch of a mega food park at Haridwar, farmers in the state will become financially independent as their produce will be sourced for processing. Also, the park will generate as many as 20,000 jobs in the initial phase,” Sahai said, laying the foundation stone for the mega food park.

The Patanjali Food and Herbal Park, expected to commence operation in August this year, is being developed by a company promoted Baba Ramadev. The park is expected to attract investments to the tune of Rs 500 crore.

The minister said that currently fewer than 2.5 per cent of food commodities are processed in the country as against 80 per cent in developed countries.

To link farmers directly to the market and processing units, Sahai urged the state government to amend the Agricultural Produce Marketing Committee (APMC) Act and levy zero per cent VAT on processed food products.

“It is high time that state government amended the APMC Act and levied minimum VAT on processed products, so that farmers got better returns,” he said.

Baba Ramdev now turns entrepreneur
Shishir Prashant / New Delhi/ Dehradun January 05, 2010, 0:47 IST
After teaching yoga, Baba Ramdev is now all set to show his entrepreneurship tomorrow at Haridwar where the country’s first mega food park would be inaugurated.


 
    
   
And to make the show pompous, the yoga guru has roped in scores of chief ministers, Union ministers and top industrialists for the inaugural ceremony. An investment of Rs 500 crore is expected in the food park, which is considered to be the biggest in India.

At least two-dozen factories related to organic, herbal and other agriculture products would be set up in the food park.

The food park has been built on 100 acres of land in Padartha area of Haridwar district. Nearly five companies had already invested Rs 200-300 crores. The capacity of the food park would be 1,000 million tonnes per day.

“Through this endeavour, we will be procuring agriculture produce directly from farmers giving them all their dues in Uttarakhand and other areas,” said Acharya Balkrishan, the managing director of Patanjali Food and Herbal Park, the special purpose vehicle for the food park. Balkrishan also claimed that the food park would provide employment to nearly 50,000 families.

The Uttarakhand government is also providing all logistic support to the food park. The government has already launched a campaign, telling farmers to sell their produce to Baba Ramdev only. “We are ready to provide all support to Baba Ramdev,” asserted Agriculture Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat.

The centre has proposed to set up 10 mega food parks under the 11th 5-year Plan. Each food park is expected to have 20-30 units.

Already, several herbal products made at Patanjali Yogpeeth are big hit in the market. In the proposed food park at Padartha, Baba Ramdev would also make various juices from different vegetables and fruits like carrot and papaya. One factory on bio-diesel from jetropha is also proposed in the food park. A sum of Rs 35,000 crores has been assured for the 10 mega food parks which are being built in different parts of the country.

Baba Ramdev's food park to procure C-grade apples

Shishir Prashant / New Delhi/ Dehra Dun August 14, 2010, 0:50 IST

After failing to find a market, the Uttarakhand government has tied up with Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev for the procurement of C-grade apples in the hills.

In the first step, Baba Ramdev’s food park at Haridwar has procured 15 tonnes of C-grade apples from farmers in the Chamoli district. A consignment of the apples is already on its way to Haridwar from Chamoli, a top official told Business Standard.

Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali Food and Herbal Park has been built on 100 acres of land at Haridwar with an initial investment of ' 300 crore. The capacity of the food park is 1,000 million tonnes (mt) per day. The food park would prepare various food items like jam and murabba from these C-grade apples.

“Marketing for C-grade apples has always been a difficult task for us. But now, Baba Ramdev is ready to procure C-grade apples,” said the official.

Baba Ramdev has also agreed to pay ' one or two more than the minimum support price (MSP) of ' nine per kg.for the C-grade apples.

“We are putting our efforts in such a way that apples will not be allowed to get rotten, as happens generally,” said the official.

Besides, the government is also exploring new markets in the country for apples of Uttarakhand, which have so far failed to compete with that of Himachal Pradesh.

According to a new plan, the government has roped in private players to procure apples from far-flung areas of Uttarakhand and give a brand name. Some of the apple merchants from the south like C Pratapan of Safe Channel Fruits, are being invited for finding suitable markets for various delicious varieties of apples. In addition to this, the government is also looking for new brand names for apples of the hill state.
