Tamil Nadu Agro Industries Development Corporation (TNAIDC) was started in 1967, by the Government of India, when it was decided that the major states in the country should have agro industry corporations as corporate bodies. In 1968, TNAIDC was incorporated with the Government of India providing the major part of the shares initially. Later, the shares were split between the central and state government. The centre share holding is 46.3% while the rest is with the state government. The authorised and paid up share capital is Rs.400 lakh.

The corporation was formed with the objective of encouraging and promoting industries for the growth and modernization of agriculture, animal husbandry, pisiculture, poultry farming, horticulture and floriculture. It also promotes agro-based industries, particularly food processing industries and adopts the latest developments in the field of agriculture and technology.
