Subsidy for Primary Processing Centers (PPCs) – Agriculture produce would reach the (PPCs). Thus the need for a well equipped unloading facility. This facility would ensure that all produce reaching the Primary Processing Centers (PPCs) are sent to manual sorting / grading section smoothly within minimum time and wastage.- mofpi consultancy
The graded, sorted washed & packed produce are stored in the warehouse. They would be loaded onto trucks at the requisite time so that they reach the Central Processing Center (CPC) most efficiently. It is essential that wastage from loading is kept at a negligible level.
For the purpose of safe transport of the perishable inputs, it is proposed to transport them in plastic crates. These collapsible plastic crates will keep on rotating between the Primary Processing Centers (PPCs), Central Processing Centre (CPC) and Collection Centers (CCs). To achieve an annual procurement of 20,000 MT/ year the average procurement per day will be approx. 68 MT.
However procurement will not happen at constant rate round the year and procurement may reach up to 100 MT per day in peak season. Thus the requirement will increase to approx 7000 crates in the peak months of procurement to handle procurement of one day. Thus a total of 7,000 crates are planned at the Sikaria Mega Food Park (P) Ltd. with budget of Rs 25 lacs for the entire food park.
