Farmer producer companies (FPCs) of Maharashtra

  • Farmer producer companies (FPCs) of Maharashtra have turned out to be a source of succour for farmers badly affected by drought in the state.
  • These farmer producer companies claim to have provided employment to at least 11,900 farmers at a time of financial distress.
  • MAHA-FPC has entered into a joint venture with the National Agricultural Cooperative Marketing Federation (NAFED) to develop a value chain for onion procurement in Maharashtra.
  • The Rs 25-crore project will see the government making 50% investment while the rest will be raised by NAFED and FPCs.
