CSIR-CMERI in collaboration with NGOs has set up High Efficiency Post Harvest Drying & Processing Centres in the states of Mizoram and Arunachal Pradesh for post harvest processing of Ginger, Big Cardamom, Turmeric, Chillies etc. More than 10,000 farmers of North East would be able to sell their produce at 20-25% higher price to the processing centers.

Benefit of the Technology:

These centers would generate direct employment to about 300 people. Thus, through this initiative, CSIR is playing a key role in the developmental roadmap of the Indian North East area and has made a rapid tread in augmenting the local economy and providing livelihood to a large population of the area.
