Cigarette to hotels conglomerate ITC Ltd is negotiating for a five-acre plot in the mega food park coming up at Jangipur in Murshidabad district for a food processing unit, an official of the mega food park said today.
Speaking on the sidelines of a seminar organised by the Indian Chamber of Commerce on mega food parks, Islam said ITC was already conducting training and advisory services for farmers there. However, when asked for details, an ITC spokesman said, "I am not aware".
ITC had earlier announced an investment of around Rs 500 crore for setting up an integrated food and logistics hub at Uluberia in Howrah district in West Bengal. "There were some legal issues involved in getting the land. The company had been waiting for four to five years. It is good that the government has supported in getting the issues resolved," ITC Chairman YC Deveshwar had said at the last AGM.
Recently, ITC had tied up with city based Keventor Agro group for manufacturing its 'Yippee' noodles brand in the city.
