The One District One Focus Product (ODOFP) programme cover products of agriculture and allied sectors for 728 districts of the country, said Union Minister of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Narendra Singh Tomar on Tuesday.

The Government has decided to converge resources from ongoing centrally sponsored schemes such as Mission for Integrated Development of Horticulture (MIDH), National Food Security Mission (NFSM), Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojana (RKVY), Paramparagat Krishi Vikas Yojana (PKVY), schemes of Ministry of Fisheries, Animal Husbandry and Dairying for ODOFP.

The Ministry of Food Processing Industries (MoFPI) provides financial support  under Centrally Sponsored Pradhan Mantri Formalisation of Micro Food Processing Enterprises Scheme (PM FME Scheme) for One District One Focus Product.

PM FME provides financial, technical and business support for upgradation of existing micro food processing enterprises etc.

The scheme adopts One District One Product (ODOP) approach to reap the benefits of scale in terms of procurement of inputs, availing common services and marketing of products.

The identified products have potential for both domestic demand and export.

PM FME scheme envisages strengthening backward and forward linkages, provision of common facilities, incubation centres, training, research and development (R&D), marketing and branding.

The enhanced capacity of processing and value addition in agriculture and allied sector products is for better price realization by the farmers. This scheme is being implemented for a period of five years from 2020-21 to 2024-25.

This information was given in a written reply by Tomar in Lok Sabha.
