Mango Pulp Unit
Mango pulp unit at Kameswaram village of Nagapattinam district
The Mango pulp unit at Kameswaram village of Nagapattinam district was a long time dream of the community people of the local Panchayats. PTSLP with the assistance of IFAD has established this pulp unit at a total cost of Rs. 10.44 crores benefitting the farmers of not only of that area but also of around that area also.
The pulp unit has started its operation on 08.07.2019. Initially about 76 tones of pulp have been processed
Due to the recent incidence of Gaja cyclone, where in great damage has been caused to the mango plantations of the project area, it was a huge challenge for the stake holders to operate the unit. In spite of serious and various the impediments faced, the Government of Tamil Nadu, PTSLP officials motivated by IFAD have strived hard to successfully start the operations of Mango Pulp Unit by rendering continuous support in establishing the unit to bring in a sustainable support to the farmers of the project area
