Market in Nepal dominated by Indian and Chinese fruitsThe Nepali fruit market is dominated by fruits imported from India and China, domestic production being far less than demand. Imports of fruits and nuts into the country have increased by 21 percent in the first five months of the current fiscal year compared to the previous one, according to statistics of the Department of Customs.
Fruits and nuts worth 3.4 billion rupees were imported in the first five months of Fiscal Year 2015/16, which increased to 4.7 billion rupees in FY 2016/17 in the same time period. The figures further increased to 5.7 billion rupees in the first five months of the current fiscal year.
Among the fruits imported, apples mainly come from China. Other major fruits like bananas, oranges, grapes, mangos, etc are imported from India.
Officials of the Fruits Development Directorate (FDD) have confirmed that the import of fruit has been increasing despite the targets of the directorate to increase the domestic productivity.
According to a myrepublica.com article, officials have said that the demand for fruit has increased in and around Kathmandu in the past few years owing to an increase in the population and an increased awareness about the health aspects of fruits.
