Bengal is going to be the 'Focus State' at World Food India (WFI), 2017, to be organised by the Union Ministry of Food Processing Industries from November 3 to 5. Bengal's participation at WFI, 2017, which will be the largest trade fair of its kind to be held so far in India, will be a golden opportunity for thestate to showcase its potential as well as the huge success it has achieved in the food sector. It will also be a platform to highlight the state's innovative food processing methods. WFI, 2017 will provide an opportunity to the most important stakeholders in the sector, that is the farmer, to interact and network with Indian and global leaders across the food value chain. The state is preparing an agri-business and food-processing logistics blueprint, which will include development like the increase in export of mangoes and litchis by more than 40 per cent that Bengal witnessed in 2016-17. Among the major agricultural infrastructure set up in recent times in the state are packhouses in Malda and Barasat. In the near future, a Vapour Heat Treatment (VHT) facility in Barasat, an irradiation facility in Chinsurah and a perishable cargo complex in Bagdogra will become operational.UNI SJC KK
