Strategic Distribution Centres Integrated with Infrastructure Schemes of Food Processing

The Ministry of Food Processing Industries has conducted a techno-feasibility study for establishing Strategic Distribution Centres (SDCs) at strategic locations in the country. 

The SDC concept envisaged the last leg of the supply chain from where the finished products shall directly be sent for export/processing and to the retail/wholesale outlets. 

The SDC was also envisaged to handle fresh produce which will be sorted and graded properly to meet the customer requirements. The grade fitted for the fresh segment will go to the retail markets, whereas the processable grade will be available for the food processors for further value addition. The study suggested setting up 6 SDCs in different locations in the country.

The SDC concept has been integrated in ongoing schemes of Integrated Cold Chain, Value Addition & Preservation Infrastructure and Mega Food Parks. 

Integrated cold chain provides components for taking care of product requirement right from farm to market through reefer vans, Controlled Atmosphere/ Modified Atmosphere cold storages, distribution centres as well as retail outlets
