On the basis committed investments, the seafood park will process 90860 MTPA of sea food and will generate 7214 employment opportunities, they said.

The state government has received very encouraging response in terms of investments for the Seafood Park from companies across the country. We are confident that the state-of-the-art facility at the Seafood Park and Odisha s investor friendly policies will set new benchmarks for the sector said industries secretary Sanjeev Chopra.

Among the major companies which have already committed investments are Falcon Marine Exports Ltd, Magnum Seafoods Ltd, Utkal Exports and Vizag-based Coastal Corporation Ltd.

Located at a distance of about 20 kms from the state capital of Bhubaneswar, the seafood park is well-connected to domestic, national and international markets.

Spread over 152 acres of land, the project has been approved under the Mega Food park scheme of the Union ministry of food processing industries and will comprise of 41 processing units, Chopra said.

The project will provide plug and play infrastructure and access to common facilities like devices for cold storage, pre-processing and post-processing facilities, ice plant, packaging, polythene unit and a research and development facility.

According to the norms of the state government, a financial assistance of up to 20 per cent of the project cost (excluding cost of the land) subject to limit of Rs 15 crore will be provided to special purpose vehicle (SPV) which will promote sea foodpark.

The subsidy can also be provided in the form of equity participation through IDCO or Odisha Small Industries Corporation Ltd (OSIC).
