In an effort to promote processed meats domestically in India and abroad, India plans to create a new Board: The National Meat and Poultry Board.
India has plans to develop a new National Meat and Poultry Board by June 2007. The Board will be responsible for developing and promoting the sector. The Indian government is underway with plans for the structure of this Board following the success of its National Dairy Development Board.
The National Meat and Poultry Board would “act as an apex body for the development and promotion of processed meat products for positioning quality products in Indian and global markets,” according to a report.
