Food Processing is a sector which KINFRA has identified as one in which the Kerala has inherent strengths and tremendous potential for future growth. Therefore KINFRA has accorded priority status to this sector for focused efforts and thrust in its activity.
Based on its core platform of "Theme-Based-Parks", KINFRA pioneered and evolved the concept of Food Parks in the State. Food Parks are the dedicated industrial infrastructure set up for food processing industry. Apart from standard features of industrial parks, Food Parks are also provided with facilities that are specific to the food processing industry for e.g. water treatment plant, quality control facilities etc. These facilities are available as common facilities, and hence serve as major incentive for the investors. Such facilities also encourage the concept of 'sharing of infrastructure'.
KINFRA has already set up a robust industrial infrastructure for food processing sector in the State with five fully functional Food Parks. The new projects for the Food Processing Sector include a Mega Food Park and a Spices Park.
