Govt to come up with 'National Food Processing Policy'.

    Badal also said agriculture credit should also be connected with food processing sector as the ultimate beneficiary is farmer.Badal was speaking at the National Cold Chain Summit organised by CII jointly with Ministry of Food Processing Industries and Ministry of Agriculture and National Centre for Cold Chain Development (NCCD).
There should be zero tolerance towards waste. Currently, there is Rs 44,000 crore of wastage and unless we work towards removing that, our growth story cannot be completed. The cold chain capacity of the country is 30 million tonnes, whereas it produces around 200 million metric tonne of products," she said.
Badal emphasised that the utmost focus should be on reducing the wastage of three main vegetables -- onions, tomatoes and potato as they are driving inflation.

Talking about the challenges the industry faces, the Minister said: "The biggest challenge the industry faces is power, without which the cold chain cannot be successful. States need to invest in renewable energy and provide solar energy at subsidised rates."

Badal also asked the officials and other government bodies to 'pull up your socks' as a lot of ground needs to be covered in the cold chain sector.
