Revised Notice Inviting Expression of Interest for Empanelment of Project Managements Consultants (PMC) for Infrastructure Development Schemes and for up gradation of Food Testing Labs.

1.

Background

1.1. The Ministry of Food Processing Industries under XI Plan is launching Schemes of a) Mega Food Park b) Integrated Cold Chain &Strategic Distribution Centre and c) Modern Abattoirs in various parts of the country to provide a mechanism to bring farmers, processors and retailers together and link agricultural production to the market so as to ensure maximization of value addition, minimize wastages and improve farmers’ income as well as for d) setting up/up gradation of Food Testing

1.2. Mega Food Park Scheme proposes a demand driven/pre-marketed model with strong backward/forward linkages and sustainable supply chain. The primary objective of the proposed scheme is to facilitate establishment of integrated value chain, with processing at the core and supported by requisite forward and backward linkages. The scheme provides for creating infrastructure for farm level primary processing centre-cum- cold chain in identified clusters, processing of intermediate products, collection centre cum cold chains, centralized infrastructure to take care of processing activities, which require cutting edge technologies and testing facilities, besides the basic infrastructure for water supply, power, environmental protection systems, communication etc. The supply chain will establish on-Farm Primary Processing Centre cum cold chain facilities for aggregation of the produce at village level, which will be linked, to the retail outlets/processing parks through appropriate produce aggregation facility and collection centre cum cold chain and Reefer van transportation net works. The scheme is proposed to be entrepreneur driven to be implemented on a PPP basis.

Cold Chain & Strategic Distribution Centre scheme targets setting up of centers with infrastructure facilities like material handling equipment, refrigeration, IQF/ blast freezing, ancillary equipments i.e. X-ray, weigh bridge, substation, electric system, Cold storages (CA/ MA), specialized storage, packing, etc to handle a wide range of perishable or processed food products. These centers will form the last point for export of

processed foods and also provide the much-needed forward linkage to the supermarkets and malls in the metropolises.

Modern Abattoir (Modernization of existing abattoirs/ setting up of modern abattoir) scheme targets infrastructure for the meat processing industry i.e. Modernization of abattoirs. The main objectives of the scheme are a) Scientific and hygienic slaughtering (b) Stunning, causing least pain to the cattle/ minimizing transportation of animals (c) Better by product utilization/value addition and providing chilling facility to prevent microbial activity in slaughtered animals.

Setting up/up gradation of Food Control Lab:Scheme for setting

up/up-gradation of Food Testing Laboratories targets to establish a network of food testing laboratories in the country to facilitate food regulatory bodies, food processing industries and other stakeholders, so as to ensure the quality and safety of food products. It is proposed to establish/ up-grade eighty four (84) food testing laboratories in various parts of the country during 11 th plan and develop a mechanism for networking of these laboratories with the objectives: (a) to ensure compliance with National/ International food standards, (b) to analyze the samples received from food processing industries, and other stakeholders, (c) to reduce the time of analysis of samples by reducing transportation time of samples, (d) to generate scientific data on levels of contaminants, pesticide residue etc.

In addition, The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India proposed to be established under the provisions of the Food Safety and Standards Act, 2006, has been empowered to recognize the food testing laboratories in Government and Private sector. The proposed Food Authority may recognize labs in each State/district and also lay standards for testing of the food products. Setting up / up-gradation of food testing laboratories are needed for better regulation of food standards by the Food Authority and State Governments.

To make the Plan Scheme more attractive during 11 th Plan, the Ministry has proposed a revised the existing scheme for setting up/up- gradation of Quality Control Laboratory to strengthen the food-testing infrastructure in the country. Under the 11 th plan scheme increased level of financial assistance has been proposed for private sector for components of lab equipments and building for housing the lab. The scheme may also be implemented on a PPP basis.

1.3. As the above said schemes are complex in nature and involves multi- disciplinary skills, it is proposed to appoint reputed and experienced consultants as Programme Management Agencies (PMA) with experience in development and financing of industrial clusters, infrastructure on PPP basis. The scheme envisages technical and managerial assistance to the potential stakeholders, through a professional Project Management Agency (PMA) who would assist the Ministry as well as the industry from concept to commissioning. MFPI will engage a Project Management Agency, through competitive bidding, for conducting feasibility studies on the proposed schemes, to do project development, monitoring and evaluation of projects, appraise various projects, and help the Ministry in approving projects , release of grant and its judicious utilization.

1.4 Project Management Consultants (PMC) would play major role in preparation of feasibility reports, DPR of the project and also assist the SPVs/ anchor entrepreneurs in the implementation of the project. They shall assist the SPVs/ anchor entrepreneurs in identifying the detailed supply chain and the broad business plan of the proposed projects. PMC may interact with the PMA appointed by the Ministry with respect to Infrastructure Development schemes to ensure identification, design and implementation of projects.

1.5 To avail the benefits of the proposed Scheme, investors have to come together and form a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) or take on the role of anchor entrepreneurs. The Mega Food Parks may be owned and managed by a SPV in which the stake holders are the food processors, farmers’ bodies, retailers, state government agencies, financial institutions etc. The stakeholders, other than the Government, will have majority share holding of the SPV.

1.6 Although, in- principle approval may be accorded by MFPI to a project based on a preliminary project report, formal approval would be given for grant, only after establishment of SPV, procurement of land for the project by the SPV, and appraisal of DPR by the Programme Management Agency, appointed by MFPI. The release of funds would be done in phases after ensuring that the financial closure has been achieved by the SPV and SPV brings in its stipulated contribution in time.

2.

Proposal & Scope of Work

To ensure the successful implementation of proposed a) mega food parks, b) Strategic Distribution Centre, c) Abattoirs and d) setting up/up gradation of Food Testing Labs. MFPI has decided to prepare a panel of professional agencies as Project Management Consultants (PMCs), which have requisite experience in preparation of Feasibility reports, detailed project reports (DPRs) for large agro/industry infrastructure projects and also in implementation of such projects. PMCs if selected by SPVs/ anchor entrepreneurs, would provide consultancy services to them. A list of such technically qualified PMCs is proposed to be drawn up to enable SPVs in the successful operation of the projects in the above said infrastructure development schemes.

2.1 In order to achieve the above objectives, the Ministry now intends to empanel technically competent agencies as Project Management Consultants (PMCs) for a) Mega Food Park projects, b) Cold chain &Strategic Distribution Centre c) Modern Abattoirs and d) setting up/up gradation of Food Testing Labs. The services of such agencies may be used by Special Purpose Vehicles (SPVs)/ Anchor entrepreneurs, which would own and manage Mega Food Park for successful implementation of these projects. PMCs are expected to carry out prefeasibility studies and develop the project by identifying stake holders/ investors and develop project designs. PMC should have inherent financial strength to incur such expenditure. However, such projects will be evaluated through open competitive and transparent method on predecided criteria and accordingly, final decision will be taken for project selection. Ministry is not liable for any re-imbursement of expenses incurred on PMC irrespective of the selection of the project for MFPI assistance.

2.2 The empanelment of the Project Managements Consultants would be done on the basis of technical competence possessed by the prospective agencies to carry out the tasks envisaged. The Ministry would not provide any financial assistance or ensure any business tie-up for these empanelled agencies. However, their technical competence/services may be used by the Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) who will be the implementing agency comprising of different stakeholders for implementation of MFP projects, for framing DPRs/pre-feasibility studies or any other work of such nature as deemed fit by the SPV on mutual agreed terms and conditions by both parties. This requires the prospective bidders to be in a position and willing to take risk for working upfront in chalking out project proposals even though it does not guarantee automatic approval of the Ministry. The

projects received from these agencies through SPVs would be examined and considered in this Ministry on merit of each proposal.

2.3 The panel of PMCs proposed to be prepared by the Ministry is only an indicative list, which may subsequently be updated by including more such technically qualified agencies that meet the technical parameters, and other requirements fixed by the Ministry for the purpose.

1. Mega Food Parks

Annexure -I

The Ministry of Food Processing Industries proposes to implement a scheme to establish 30 (thirty) Mega Food Parks in the country* with the following objectives:

Provide state of the art infrastructure for food processing in the country on a pre identified cluster basis

Ensure value addition of agricultural commodities including poultry, meat, dairy, fisheries etc.

Establish a sustainable raw material supply chain for each cluster

Facilitate induction of latest technology

Foster interagency linkages for pooling of resources for activities complementary to food processing

Quality assurance through better process control and capacity building

Address issues of small farm size and small and medium nature of processing industries through a cluster approach with stakeholders managing the supply chain.

* Subject to approval of the Government of India

2. Cluster based approach

The location of Mega Food Parks have to be selected on the basis the agricultural and horticultural surpluses available. A mix of products and crops has to be taken up to increase the viability of Food Park. The supply chain has to be clearly delineated and the points at which On Farm Primary Processing Centre/ Collection Centre units have to be established also need to be finalized. All these can be done only by a professional management agency specifically selected and tasked with this job. The SPV, which is sought to be established to manage the Food Park, has to be supported by the Project Management Agency to ensure that these components are put in place.

In this scheme there will be provision for a centralized infrastructure to take care of the processing activities, which require cutting edge technology like testing laboratories, effluent treatment, packaging etc. which are capital and technology intensive. Under the umbrella of such a park, On Farm Primary-Processing Centers for processing of fresh produce and Collection Centers for aggregation of primary processed produce for onward transportation either to retail outlet or to the processing unit, need to be established. These could also be a platform for

technology feedback to address issues such as introduction of appropriate varieties for processing and handling of produce to meet the processing requirements. The Food Park can be established for any sector on need basis such as Fruits and Vegetables, Dairy, Meat & Poultry, Wine etc. Subject to feasibility, such park can also facilitate organic farming and processing of organic food. In zones, which offer potential for organic farming, exclusive food parks could be set up for value addition and marketing. These parks can also serve as sourcing hubs for retail chains for fresh produce/minimally processed products. Mega Food Park could be implemented in already identified AEZ (about 60) or clusters identified by the National Horticulture Mission/ Technology Mission. The clusters in the service area of the proposed project could be mapped (in all sectors such as fruits and vegetables, dairy, fisheries, animal husbandry, poultry, oil seeds, spices, wine etc) to evolve detailed implementation plans. Such an approach can help in the much-needed synergy among agencies complementary to the Park.

3. Supply Chain Management

The feedback from the industry indicates lack of reliable raw material supply as a major constraint. While supply chain management is important for all industries, it is of paramount importance as far as the food processing industry is concerned. Production is relatively unorganized and this calls for appropriate backward linkages to be established simultaneous with establishment of processing facilities. Bulk of production of fruits and vegetables occur in small and marginal holdings. In such a situation, it is extremely essential to have aggregation of the produce at the village level itself before being transported to the park, which is centrally located. For addressing this issue, appropriate institutional development at grassroots level, with involvement of small and marginal farmers is essential. The concept of self- help groups or Neighborhood Groups has been found effective in the food/ vegetable production system. Each group may compromise of 10-20 farmers. These groups can be the first point of aggregation of the produce, and can also act, as an agency for transfer of technology for adoption of best practices to improve productivity and quality to meet the market needs. They can be empowered by establishing On Farm Primary Processing Centers at Panchayat level. These organizations will be stakeholders in the Food Park. The model has already been tried in the plantation sector/dairy sector with a fair degree of success. In the model for supply chain management, the fruit/vegetable producers’ society/association is the next suggested level for aggregation of the produce. Fruit/vegetable producers’ society/association would be a cluster of 20-30 self- help groups, which would also provide these groups with basic minimum facilities for handling the fruits and vegetables produced by its members. To facilitate aggregation of the produce, Collection Centre can be established at the block level

on need basis. Apart from the SHGs, large farmers and village level traders in the identified zone also can serve as supply source of raw material. Around 10-20 such clusters can be organized in the service area of Mega Food Parks to ensure regular supply of raw materials to the parks. The same concept can hold good for poultry and dairy sector.

The Mega Food Park will therefore have three tiers in the supply chain (backward linkage) viz.

Producers’ Groups comprising of 20-30 SHG (Each SHG:10-20 Farmers) /Large farmers/village level traders in the zone- with On Farm Primary Processing Center for cleaning, grading, sorting & Controlled temperature storage.

Collection Centers with pre cooling facilities Depending on the need sorting, grading & packing facilities will be provided at these centers. These centers will have facilities for transfer of technology as well as information kiosks, supply of inputs etc. About 20 such clusters will feed the Food Park.

The Supply Chain The Mega Food Park Scheme will be implemented by SPV, ideally a private limited company in which the stakeholders will be the investors in the park (producers’ agencies, retailers, Service Providers, State Government Agencies, financial institutions etc.) The backward linkages in the jurisdiction of a park will be organised under an appropriate institutional arrangement- a Producers Company (registered under Section 25) or a Society under Charitable Societies Act. Under the proposed arrangement, it is estimated that approximately 4000-5000 farmers will get directly involved in the supply chain. The Producers Company or the Society will be a shareholder in the SPV formed for implementing the Scheme. Alternatively, a Producers Company with the equity participation of about 20 fruit/vegetable producers’ Society/ Association (cluster), large farmers, traders etc. can be promoted by the SPV of the Park and the SPV can have equity participation in the Producers’ Company. Facilitating formation of self-help groups of farmers will require intensive extension efforts. The SPV proposed to be formed for implementing the Park may not be in a position to carry out this task directly. These functions can be discharged by the State Agricultural / Horticultural Departments, or specific agencies created by the State Government or Central Government for the purpose. Identifying NGOs to carry out the tasks outlined can be considered as an option. The capacity building of the extension workers and technologists will be the

responsibility of the SPV. These farmers’ producer companies can also make arrangements for bulk supply of inputs, access to technology, organise programs for capacity building etc. One of the major constraints in the sector is lack of good planting materials. The farmers’ producer companies can address this issue. Nurseries can be run on a commercial scale including adoption of biotechnology and micro propagation techniques. An information kiosk can be provided at the fruit/vegetable producers’ society/ association level to provide market information. The institutional arrangement proposed would address the concerns raised in the context of contract farming by farmer organizations. The Producer Company can directly deal with entrepreneurs/ corporates investing in the park for the supply of appropriate varieties by changing the cropping pattern, if need be. SPV also can enter into contracts with the retailers. While the demand for fresh products can be met through the primary processing/ collection centers, the demand for intermediate/ fully processed food products can be met by the units in the park. If the scheme is tailored and marketed properly, the retailers themselves also can become equity partners in the SPV of the Food Park.

Eligibility criteria and financial assistance

The scheme will be eligible to be availed by all categories of entrepreneurs and emphasis will be on the economies of scale and viability of the scheme. Financial assistance as approved by the Government will be made available.

Integrated Cold Chain & Strategic Distribution System

The Ministry of Food Processing Industries (MFPI) launching to implement a Scheme for Establishing an Integrated Cold Chain and Strategic Distribution system (SDC) in the country during the 11 th Plan period. The Ministry proposes to work with the Container Corporation of India, Railways, Airport Authority of India and private / other public infrastructure/retail/ export/supply chain companies to establish Integrated Cold Chain and SDC in a network of towns, airports and seaports on the trunk routes, highways and consumption centres. The SDC which will be the nerve centre of Integrated Cold Chain infrastructure with a capacity of 10000 to 20000 tonnes will be located near airports, seaports and consumption centres and they will form the last point for export of processed foods and also provide the much needed forward linkage to the super markets and malls in the metropolis with the organized retail. The SDCs will have infrastructure facilities like material handling equipment, refrigeration, IQF/blast freezing, ancillary equipments, X-ray, weigh bridge, sub-station, electric system, cold/CA/MA/specialized storage etc. to handle a wide range of perishables and other processed food products.

The food marketing and strategic distribution center (SDC) is the critical final link in the agri-food chain between food processors ("processors") and agricultural producers ("producers") and consumers, and represents a significant part of the economy. The SDC is responsible for moving agrifood products along the supply chain through to the consumer. The agrifood industry comprises a number of & independent sectors (farmers, processors, manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, food service operation & consumer). Thus the SDC will have strong source linkages with the production centers including food parks and other collection centers as well as consumption centers while being the last point for exports. The food distribution sector would play an increasingly important role in the country’s agri- food system by generating significant economic activity for export and contributing to affordable food supplies in the domestic markets. To give a cluster-based approach, Cold chain maintenance system has to be developed right from the grass root level (farmer) subsequently to processing and marketing sector. For eg. In Dairy sector, it includes Bulk milk collection centre at farm level and refer vans for tranport of processed products at market outlet.

In order to identify SDCs to be taken up initially at three strategic locations primarily linking major sourcing hubs, domestic consumption/retail center and export exit route, to be selected based on catchments areas, availability of other infrastructure and viability, the Ministry intends to undertake a detailed feasibility study which would provide insights into various institutional, technical/engineering, commercial, financial and operational details of the proposed interventions. The findings/ recommendations of the feasibility studies are expected to provide the Ministry with necessary inputs to finalize the Scheme and proceed with its implementation. In order to achieve the objective, technical and

managerial assistance to the concerned Anchor entrepreneurs, through a professional PMC is inevitable to transform the project from concept to commissioning of the project.

The volume of assistance is proposed as 50% and 25% of the eligible cost of Infrastructure facilities, TCW and Reefer container for public sector and private sector respectively.

Modern Abattoir scheme ( Modernisation of existing abbatoirs/ setting up of modern abattoirs)

Abattoir scheme targeting infrastructure development for the meat processing industry is Modernization of abattoirs. The main objectives of the scheme are a) Scientific and hygienic slaughtering (b) Stunning, causing least pain to the cattle/ minimizing transportation of animals (c) Better by product utilization/value addition and providing chilling facility to prevent microbial activity in slaughtered animals.

Modernization of existing abattoirs will also augment essential supply base of hygienic raw material to the meat processing industry, both for domestic consumption and exports, besides discouraging unauthorized slaughtering.

The abattoirs are generally under the control of local bodies. With a view that these modernization projects benefit from infusion of capital, modern technology / management and commercial sustainability, taking up such projects in PPP mode under various arrangements such as BOO/BOT/JV, etc. needs to be considered. Viable projects under a sustainable framework to be implemented by local authorities can also be considered. In order to achieve the objective, technical and managerial assistance to the concerned local authority, through a professional PMC is inevitable to transform the project from concept to commissioning of the project.

The volume of assistance is proposed as 50% and 60% of the eligible cost of plant & machinery and TCW in general areas and difficult areas respectively with ceiling of Rs. 15.00 crore per abattoir.

Setting up/up gradation of Food Control Lab:

Scheme for setting up/up-gradation of Food Testing Laboratories targets to establish a network of food testing laboratories in the country to facilitate food regulatory bodies, food processing industries and other stakeholders, so as to ensure the quality and safety of food products. It is proposed to establish/ up-grade eighty four (84) food testing laboratories in various parts of the country during 11 th plan and develop a mechanism for networking of these laboratories with the objectives: (a) to ensure compliance with National/ International food standards, (b) to analyze the samples received from food processing industries, and other stakeholders, (c) to reduce the time of analysis of samples by reducing transportation time of samples, (d) to generate scientific data on levels of contaminants, pesticide residue etc.

In addition, The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India proposed to be established under the provisions of the Food Safety and Standards Act, 2006, has been empowered to recognize the food testing laboratories in Government and Private sector. The proposed Food Authority may recognize labs in each State/district and also lay standards for testing of the food products. Setting up / up-gradation of food testing laboratories are needed for better regulation of food standards by the Food Authority and State Governments.

To make the Plan Scheme more attractive during 11 th Plan, the Ministry has proposed a revised the existing scheme for setting up/up-gradation of Quality Control Laboratory to strengthen the food-testing infrastructure in the country. Under the 11 th plan scheme increased level of financial assistance has been proposed for private sector for components of lab equipments and building for housing the lab. The scheme may also be implemented on a PPP basis.

Annexure -II Role of Project Management Agency and Project Management Consultants in Development of Food Processing Projects and for setting up/up gradation of food testing labs.

The Project Management Agency (PMA) is an independent professional agency with multi disciplinary skill set and is positioned for developing the projects under the scheme and hand holding them through the entire life cycle (from “concept to commissioning”).

The primary role of PMA is to assist the MFPI on pan India basis, in effective implementation of the scheme. In other words, PMA will be the extension of MFPI providing need based technical support to ensure that the projects are identified and implemented in keeping with the guidelines of the scheme. Such technical support by the Ministry, through a specialized agency, will enable the convergence of the interests of the industry, Government and other stakeholders.

Role of PMA (Project Management Agency)

PMA will be appointed by the Ministry to help SPVs/ anchor entrepreneurs in the implementation of the mega food park project and other projects stated as above. PMA would conduct the studies to assess the feasibility of the proposed projects in the potential locations. The PMA will be fully responsible for successful executions of the Projects from concept to commissioning.

Role of Project Management Consultants (PMC)

PMCs play major role in preparation of the DPR of the project and also assist the SPVs in the implementation of the project. They shall assist the SPVs/ anchor entrepreneurs in identifying the detailed supply chain and the broad business plan of the proposed. PMCs will be appointed by SPVs/anchor entrepreneurs in order to get technical assistance from the initiation of the project till completion of the same. PMCs may obtain ideas and clarification directly from the PMA appointed by the Ministry with respect to Infrastructure Development schemes and accordingly, implement and monitor the projects.
