The Business Planning & Development (BPD) unit of IISR is set up through World Bank funded National Agricultural Innovation Project (NAIP) of Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR). The unit intends to achieve the objectives of encouraging R&D in spice processing for product and process development, productivity enhancement and value addition to spice produce. The BPD unit will act as a catalyst for attracting entrepreneurship development in this sector by developing integrated processing capacities, providing technical guidance and advice on quality maintenance and testing standards as well as creating conducive environment for its growth.
