The Millet Incubation Center offers a diverse range of processing facilities, including primary and secondary millet processing, extrusion lines for vermicelli, pasta, and noodles, bakery lines, and a puffing line. This expansion aims to double the number of entrepreneurs benefiting from these facilities and promote the nutritional value and versatility of millets, such as Sorghum, Pearl millet, Finger Millet, Proso millet, Foxtail millet, Kodo millet, Little millet, and Barnyard Millet.

To meet the increasing demand for ready-to-eat, ready-to-cook, and ready-to-serve millet products, the Millet Incubation Center introduces technology for value-added products like biscuits, pasta, noodles, and more under the brand "MILLET-PLUS."

Telangana has emerged as a significant player in the food processing industry, contributing an additional 12.5% to the value of agricultural products. The state government, in collaboration with MOFPI, is expanding into agro-processing clusters, cold chain infrastructure, and warehousing to support the food value chain development.
