The Mallavalli food park has already garnered 260 crores in investments, and it is estimated to employ over 6000 people.

The groundwork has been laid for the opening of a huge Core Processing Centre (CPC) in Krishna district, Andhra Pradesh. The 86-crore Andhra Pradesh Industrial Infrastructure Corporation (APIIC) has completed building the ultra-modern food processing factory.

The CPC is roughly 7.48 acres in size. The CPC is used to extract pulp from fruits and package it for direct export.

The CPC was part of a food park that spanned around 58 acres. "At 112.94 crores, we created the food park, of which 86 crore was paid entirely for CPC," said APIIC chairman.

The food park, he added, included various food processing companies, including a few that made spice powders and fruit juices. Surprisingly, the food production facility has also included quality testing laboratories. The Mallavalli food park has already garnered 260 crores in investments, and it is estimated to employ over 6000 people.

The APIIC managing director stated that a tour would be held to promote the facilities offered in the food park, particularly in the CPC.

"Farmers might transport raw materials to the CPC and then return the value-added products. The plant has all of the necessary amenities to assist farmers in obtaining large profits from their crops," Subramanian stated. He claims that growers of mango, guava, tomato, papaya, banana, and other food crops will benefit from the stock's processing because it will provide them with large returns.

The CPC has a machine that can extract roughly 10 tons of pulp from the fruit each hour.

A ripening chamber can hold 120 tons of stock, while a cold storage facility can hold 3000 tons.

Six tons of tomato pulp, ten tons of mango pulp, five tons of papaya pulp, six tons of guava pulp, and four tons of banana pulp can be extracted in an hour by the facility.
