For providing impetus to the growth of the Food Processing Industries, the Ministry of Food Processing Industries Government of India is implementing a watershed schemes by establishing MEGA FOOD PARKS. This scheme provides state of art infrastructure and technology to the enterprises engaged in the food processing industry. The Mega Food Parks make available services for establishing backward and forward linkages covering the entire food processing value chain and implement best practices in post harvest management.
 
Mega Food Parks are comprehensive industrial estates for food processing units where the industries would have provision of common facilities like infrastructure, cold storage, cold chain, effluent treatment plant, warehousing power connection, water facilities, sewerage etc. The construction of these common infrastructures would benefit to any individual units particularly the small and medium scale units, because these are expensive to be set up by any single individual unit. Therefore a common park with all the infrastructures would help in the growth of the food processing industry reducing wastage.
