New Delhi, Mar 28 (PTI) Union Food Processing Industries Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal will inaugurate the first mega food park at Roopangarh village in Ajmer, Rajasthan tomorrow.
The food park is being set up at a cost of Rs 113.57 crore and will benefit around 25,000 farmers in Ajmer as well as neighbouring districts, an official statement said.
The mega food park would leverage an additional investment of about Rs 250 crore in 25-30 food processing units in the park and would eventually lead to a turnover of about Rs 450-500 crore annually, it added.
