The Mega Food Park is a central government scheme instrumented by Ministry of Food Processing Industries to provide adequate/excellent infrastructure facilities for food processing along the value chain from the farm to market.

The Scheme of Food Parks under the 10th Five Year Plan has been revised and reformulated as Mega Food Parks Scheme (MFPS) for the 11th Five Year Plan period.

MFPS is expected to facilitate the achievement of the Vision 2015 of Ministry of Food Processing Industries to raise the processing of perishables in the country from the existing 6% to 20%, value addition from 20% to 35% and the share in global food trade from 1.5% to 3% by the year 2015.

The scheme includes creation of infrastructure near the farm, transportation, logistics and centralized processing centres.

Demand driven; pre marketed and facilitates food processing units to meet environmental, safety and social standards.
