Shri. Pashupati Kumar Paras, Union Minister of Food Processing Industries in the august presence of Sh. Prahlad Singh Patel, MoS (FPI) Smt. Anita Praveen, Secretary, MoFPI, and Senior Officials from the Ministry and NAFED launched Three One District One Product (ODOP) brands under the Pradhan Mantri Formalisation of Micro food processing Enterprises (PMFME) Scheme today in New Delhi.

The Ministry of Food Processing Industries has signed an agreement with NAFED for developing 10 brands of selected 20 ODOPs under the branding and marketing component of the PMFME scheme.

According to NAFED, for the benefit of consumers, all the products come in unique and attractive packaging that keeps moisture and sunlight at bay, thus ensuring a longer shelf life of the product and keeping it fresh.

In total 10 ODOP brands and 14 products have been launched under the MoU between NAFED and the Ministry of Food Processing Industries under the scheme. Each product has been developed based on the extensive knowledge and legacy of the marketing expertise of NAFED as well as its capabilities and experience in processing, packaging, supply chain, and logistics. Each brand is being supported with increased investments in brand communication in relevant markets and a strong push on digitization across the value chain.

All the products are available on E-commerce platforms, and prominent retail stores across India.

Through this initiative under the PMFME scheme, the Ministry of Food Processing Industries aims to encourage the micro food processing enterprises (MFPEs) across the country about the vision, efforts, and initiatives of the Government to formalize, upgrade and strengthen them and take them a step closer to Aatmanirbhar Bharat. MFPEs are encouraged to come forth and avail branding support under this initiative.
