Punjab's Fazilka district to have country's biggest Food Park: Union Minister for Food Processing
The Central government will grant subsidy and other facilities to those keen for setting up food processing units in the state of Punjab.
On the similar lines, the Fazilka district is all set to get country's biggest food whose operations would be started in next two months.

The Union Minister for Food Processing, Harsimrat Kaur Badal said this while distributing 300 sewing machines, saplings and certificates under the Nanhi Chhan campaign in Fazilka's Arniwala block.

She said that the industrial houses keen to set up food processing units in the state would be given subsidies and special facilities.

Highlighting large numbers of opportunities in the food processing sector of Punjab state, she said that it would not only translate into the farmers getting better returns for their crops, but will also mean utilizing the crop that otherwise goes waste.

She added that an international level Food Park has been established in Fazilka whose work will start in next two months.
