Communic Agro Processing Ltd.(Communic Agro) Â is a proposed project that intends to set up a Fruit and Vegetable Processing Plant in Dinajpur. The company has been incorporated two years back. The main aim of the company has to â€œproduce save hygienic process food from fresh seasonal fruits and vegetablesâ€
BACKGROUND OF THE PROJECT
Bangladesh, a country of tropical and subtropical climates, produces large volume of highly nutritious fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables are highly valued in human diet mainly for vitamins, minerals and dietary fibre. Dark green leafy vegetables, yellow orange vegetables and fruits are especially good sources of dietary fibre, folate, and a wide range of carotids and vitamin C.Bangladesh is fortunate in having a wide range of leafy vegetables and local seasonal fruits.Unfortunately, a considerable proportion of the harvested produce never reaches the consumers mainly because of post harvest losses. The estimated post harvest losses of fruits and vegetables lie in the range of 20-40% (Wills et al. 2004).
THE OBJECTIVES OF THE PROJECT
- extend the shelfâ€“life of fruits and vegetables without undergoing any spoilage
- introduce large scale contract farming (Inclusive Business)

- introduce hygienic and value added as well Tasty products
- Daily consumable products of fruits & Vegetable
The project is in its initial processing stage. Hopefully by the end of the 2019, the project will go for the production.
