The Maharashtra Government plans to create a 200-acre food processing park for chilli in the Nandurbar district.

The park is likely to be developed on a public-private partnership basis.

The agro-climatic conditions in the district, makes it most conductive for growing chilli. Chilli farms are spread over almost 4,300

hectares and every year new areas come under cultivation.

The task of identifying land for the park is under way. A team of State Government officials has already visited Guntur in Andhra Pradesh

for studying market conditions and processing facilities, which have been set up there.

Guntur is a major chilli producing area of the country.
