BUILDING FOOD INFRASTRUCTURE
INDIA FOOD PARK, TUMKUR, KARNATAKA

Set-up in partnership with the Ministry of Food Processing Industries, Government of India - this state-of-the-art food park facilitates end-to-end food processing along the value chain (grading, sorting, pulping, packaging & distribution) from the farm to the market. Equipped with world-class food processing units, 22,000-tonne storage capacity, cold storage unit and in-house pulping, milling, flouring, spice & dal units, the massive park is spread across 110 acre land in Tumkur region in Karnataka. The park is a home for several food processing firms where India Food Park enables them to work through a single window system.
The vicinity of Tumkur region is surrounded by the districts of Kolar, Shimoga which are rich in millets, oilseeds, vegetables and fruits. The park is beneficial for farmers as it avoids the hassle of reaching out to multiple vendors and selling the crops to single point of contact.
India Food Park is strengthening FCL’s existing line of established brands in the commodity and value-added space through better packaging, sorting and distribution. It is built with best line of facilities to foray into newer food categories such as branded fruits and vegetables, canola and rice bran oils, frozen and processed food products which are currently not produced in India.
