These initiatives are aimed at increasing farmers' incomes, enhancing productivity, and ensuring sustainable agricultural practices.

Boosting the Food Processing Sector: This report explores the transformative potential of the food processing sector, positioning it as a cornerstone for India's economic development. By focusing on innovation, quality, and value addition, we are paving the way towards making India a global leader in processed food exports by 2047.

Spotlight on Northeast India: The newsletter highlights our interventions in the Northeast, aiming to elevate the role of agriculture through strategic partnerships, technological progress, and capacity building. In addition, the unique agro-climatic conditions of the region promise a significant potential for horticulture and value-added products.
