Sh. Bhagat said that HAFED aims to serve the economic interests of the farmers of Haryana by providing viable and efficient support in Agriculture Production, Marketing and Agri Processing.
With the passage of time, HAFED has expanded the scope of its activities across the country, providing healthy and quality products to the people. Apart from this, basmati paddy rice produced in the state has been included in the export, which is directly benefiting the farmers as they are getting a higher price for their produce. Along with this, HAFED is also procuring ‘Pusa Basmati’ rice from the farmers of Madhya Pradesh.
