A.P. MARKFED 1971-76 An era of achievements.
MARKFED-AP has taken big strides in every sphere of its activities.
Basically committed to:
1. Promoting marketing activities of its constitutent member societies.
2. Organising price support programmes and ensuring reasonable prices for farmers produce.
3. Setting up agro-based industries like rice mills, oil mills, ginning units etc.
4. Organising farmer service activities like supply of agricultural inputs in time at fair prices.
Initially MARKFED functioned merely as an agency marketing agricultural produce of its members. Now, it is an institutional agency catering to the agricultural needs of every
farmer in the state.
MARKFED has recorded great strides in recent years. It went all out in support of the farmers through massive procurement operations, thereby ensuring fair price support.
A pioneer in the development of agro-based industries, MARKFED established 144 rice mills, set up an oil complex at karimnagar, cotton ginning complex at Vijayawada and plans to establish at least one agro-based industry in every district of the State.
Established tractor hiring and servicing stations at jagtial. Nandyal, Miryalguda,Khammam and Nellore. Constructed 80 warehouses with 80,000 tonnes capacity spread all over the state and above all introduced the Door Delivery Scheme to meet the needs of consumers in the twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad.
Today, with a business turnover of Rs. 2,500 lakhs, MARKFED has many agro-industrial schemes on hand and looks into the future with justifiable optimism.
And the credit for these significant achievements goes to its dynamic and youthful Chairman sir V. Jagapathi Rao.
