Government of Andhra Pradesh has aligned its food processing policy with Vision - 2015 to harness the potential of food processing sector in the state.
Andhra Pradesh has been in the forefront of promoting food processing industry and had declared a separate policy for its promotion, in April 2005. The creation of a separate Department for Food Processing Industries in the state to bring a focused attention on Food Processing sector by coordinating the efforts of various departments related to the food sector was the first step in this direction.
In order to provide the organizational back up to the efforts of the Department of Food Processing Industries, Government of Andhra Pradesh has established a dedicated organization called Andhra Pradesh Food Processing Society (APFPS) which acts as a nodal agency for the implementation of various food processing related schemes and programs.
