Seafood Park Launched in Odisha, India

The Industrial Infrastructure Development Corporation of the state of Odisha in India, set up a 152-acre “Seafood Park” where food processing companies can locate their factories. The $21 million park has been approved under the Mega Food parks project of the Federal ministry of food processing industries.

The project will have 41 processing units which will provide plug and play infrastructure and access to common facilities such as prepping and post-processing areas, ice plants, polythene and packaging units as well as a research and development facility. The Seafood Park can process 90,000 million tons of seafood per year.
