Markfed has planned to set up an ultra-modern honey processing unit, a Rs 15.5-crore project, at Chuharwali village in Jalandhar district.


During a series of meetings, Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal reviewed the status of this upcoming project for boosting honey production in the state, a spokesman here said.

The unit would also provide price stabilisation and prevent exploitation of beekeepers due to the fluctuating market trends, the spokesman added.
