Food Park - lll at Sankrail, Howrah

West Bengal having achieved significant growth in agriculture over the past decades, offers the right environment for agro-based industry. The state is now among the country’s top-two producers in a wide variety of agricultural and horticultural produce and has attained self-sufficiency in most key crops. This self-sufficiency has resulted in reasonable amount of marketable surplus for most of the key crops, which is driving the state to invest in the areas of food processing. Recognizing the vast potential for food processing industries coupled with success of Food Park – I (Sudha Ras) and Food Park-II developed by WBIDC at Sankrail, Howrah, Government of West Bengal through WBIDC has conceived to set up Food Park – III adjoining to existing Food Park at Sankrail, Howrah, West Bengal.
