"An action plan would soon be chalked out to boost pineapple production in Tripura and revive fruit processing plants which were closed," he said.
A fruit processing plant started by the North Eastern Regional Agricultural Marketing Corporation Limited (NERAMAC), a central government enterprise, has stopped operation since nearly a decade, Devvarma said.
Steps would be taken to revive it, he said.
The deputy chief minister said the government would act as a facilitator to develop pineapple or other fruit processing sectors.
"We shall provide land, loans and other support including financial support. The CII should come forward to market queen variety pineapple," he said.
