Horticultural Producers’ Co-operative Marketing and Processing Society and Karnataka Milk Federation have joined hands to promote millets in the state. Once, a staple food of the state has been slowly replaced with rice and other western influenced urban foods.
Now, the government is looking to promote millets with increasing the reach by making it available across KMF outlets. Besides it will be branded as ‘Siri’ with uniform packaging for easy identification. They have recently organized Organics and Millets International Trade Fair 2019 and other activity like Smart Food Culinary Challenge to promote the same.
