Yoga guru Ramdev today announced plans to set up a mega food park in Rajasthan and said his Patanjali group, which is entering into dairy and spices segments, can buy farm produce worth Rs 5,000-10,000 crore from farmers in the state.
“I along with Patanjali will support Rajasthan Chief Minister in all her endeavours. The company is entering into milk industry and Patanjali would be keen to make Rajasthan a part of its journey,” Ramdev said at the Global Rajasthan Agritech Meet here. “Patanjali is coming in large scale in spices. We will purchase them from Rajasthan and other states and process,” he said. He added that besides spices, the company will also make available cow milk. Ramdev said his group is gearing up to buy milk from the state from next year. “If we get sufficient milk, we can leave behind amul though we have no competition with Amul.”
