India-based Murugappa Group’s nutrition firm EID Parry has received approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (US FDA) for its facility in Tamil Nadu for organic microalgae cultivation and processing.

The microalgae facility is part of the Parry Nutraceuticals division and is located in Oonaiyur, Pudukottai district. It is spread over 130 acres and has 600 tons per annum capacity.
