Hon. Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Shri Devendra Fadnavis performed ground breaking ceremony for Jain Farm Fresh Foods and Hindustan Coca Cola Beverages joint ‘Orange Unnati Project’ at Village Thana Thuni in Morshi Taluka of Amravati District today afternoon in the presence of Minister for Agriculture, Minister for Water Resources, Minister for Home, Guardian Minister of the District and more than 8000 farmers.

 The project is spread over 100 acres and with an investment of Rs. 150 crores aims to set up a ultra modern Orange Processing Plant with a capacity to process 500 MT of oranges every day. The project is unique and first of its kind in the country as it aims to build a complete value chain from farm to fork. The project will set up the largest nursery for Orange Plants in the country and introduce the processing varieties of Oranges to the farmers in the region. Jain’s have developed and acclimatised the varieties to Indian conditions and have successfully transferred the varieties to farmers land. The new varieties are high yielding and time to harvest is also lesser by 2 yrs. With the introduction of ‘Jain Sweet Orange’ varieties, farmers can expect to harvest 2 to 3 times the current production with the same amount of water resources as of today.

Hindustan Coca Cola Beverages, the bottling arm of The Coca Cola Company is partnering Jain’s in the project and apart from participating in the Agri Extension Project as an equal partner, they have also assured 100% buy back of the Orange Juice and Orange Juice Concentrate that will be manufactured at this plant.

Addressing the large gathering Hon. Chief Minister complimented Jain for realising the commitment made at the ‘Make in India’ conclave and said that the project will bring prosperity to the stressed farmers of the region. He also mentioned that the project will help in breaking the nexus of the traders and provide farmers a ready and equitable market for their produce. He also said that given the partnership with Coke, the most critical component of success i.e. marketing is taken care of and in a short time the entire country will be able to enjoy the unique taste and flavour of Orange Juice made from Oranges of Vidharba region. Hon. Chief Minister also mentioned that this project will achieve the PM’s vision of ‘Make in India’ by domestic manufacture of Orange Juice and Juice Concentrate which is currently being imported.
