Maharashtra Farmers Producer Organization (MahaFPC), a consortium of about 400 FPCs in the State, is checking out partnerships and joint ventures with corporate houses even as debates and conversations on new farm legal guidelines carry on.
The MahaFPC has currently released India’s initial onion storage and advertising and marketing infrastructure by means of the community-non-public-partnership (PPP) product. Yogesh Thorat, MD, MahaFPC, explained to BusinessLine it is large time farmers looked at equitable partnerships and not a subsidy to survive.
“There is no possibility for tiny farmers than to sort FPCs and corporate bodies will have to deal with FPCs. Corporate bodies would not be interested in creation-centric operations but in infrastructure and price chain advancement. We are searching for investment-centric partnerships and joint ventures. This is the way to go forward,” mentioned Thorat incorporating that the onion experiment has boosted the self esteem of farmers.
