NEW DELHI: Ministry of Food Processing Industries (MoFPI) and Ministry of Women and Child Development (MoWCD) signed a memorandum of understanding to organise “National Organic Festival of Women Entrepreneurs”.

The event will be planned and organized through the National Institute of Food Technology Entrepreneurship and Management ( NIFTEM) which is an academic institution under the administrative control of MoFPI.

The festival aims to encourage Indian women entrepreneurs and farmers to connect with buyers and thus, empower them through financial inclusion, while also promoting organic food produce in India. Minister of Food Processing, Harsimrat Badal said the event will promote both organic produce and women entrepreneurs. She said that this was a classic case of two women (the ministers) coming together to uplift other women and also work to double farmers’ income.

Speaking about the event, Badal added that it will feature organic produce, processed food, fabric, cosmetics, pesticides and fungicides among many products. She added that the festival will strive to provide linkages to women producers to market and supply chain, thereby facilitating their financial inclusion.

Minister of Women and Child Development, Smriti Irani said that under the current government, effort has always been to ensure that ministries converge their strengths to serve the people better. She added that this MoU is an effort to support the women who are in the business of organic farming and this step will benefit millions of women across the country.

The agreement was signed by Pushpa Subramanyam, secretary, on behalf of Ministry of Food Processing Industries and Rabindra Panwar, Secretary, on behalf of Ministry of Women and Child Development.
