Description

The facilities aim to create sustainable business opportunities around nutritious diets for tribal farmers in Telangana. In a bid to boost nutrition and income, farmers from tribal communities in the South Indian state of Telangana will shortly take to ‘agripreneurship’ as eight secondary food processing units become operational in February. ICRISAT’s Agribusiness and Innovation Platform (AIP) with the Tribal Welfare Department of Telangana State Government and the Ministry of Tribal Affairs of the Indian government has set up these units in Telangana’s Integrated Tribal Development Agencies (ITDA) – Utnoor, Eturnagaram and Bhadrachalam. ITDAs are specially administered areas to ensure governments’ welfare schemes reach tribal populations.
