ITC’s new integrated food manufacturing and logistics facility at Kapurthala has been inaugurated by Punjab chief minister Captain Amarinder Singh.
The plant is expected to give a fillip to the state’s food processing sector and strengthen its beleaguered economy.
Speaking at the inauguration, the CM said the facility would help the farming community transition from the traditional wheat-crop cycle to more lucrative crops.
He added that such projects would be instrumental not only in saving the state’s crunched fertile land and water resources but also in boosting farm income.
He said that the ITC project would bring new seeds and techniques which would enable the farmers produce potatoes that would find a ready market.
