Centre inks pact with Nafed to install millet-based vending machines in Delhi-NCR
As per the agreement, Nafed will also install millet-based vending machines at various locations across Delhi-NCR, an official statement said. The dispensing millet-based products will assist in establishing the focus on millet-based commodities.
That apart, the ministry and Nafed will collaborate in key areas like facilitating advisory support to manufacturers/processors of millet-based products to develop value-added millet-based commodities.
They will also focus on onboarding of startups, inclusive of startups empanelled with Indian Institute of Millets Research (IIMR) besides formation of Farmer Producer Organisations (FPOs) specifically for developing a range of millet-based products.
As India is gearing up to bring millet back on the global map, the ministry and Nafed will build support and organise, promote, market, and forge effective market linkages for millet-based products to maximise the value.
