Indian Barhi date production doubles
The Indian Barhi date season starts in July and ends mid August just as the Israeli season starts. According to Rattan Sharma from the company this gives them the advantage, "We get our share of business without competing head to head with Israel’s Barhi dates. We have also created our own market in Europe."
"Barhi date tissue culture plants from Israel were brought to India some 10 years ago and production on our farms is increasing year on year and gives consistent quality. For example, we at Gorasiya Farms produced around 500 tonnes in 2012 and in 2013 our produce totalled around 900 tonnes. Apart from our own produce we traded 1000 tonnes of dates, mainly in domestic markets and Europe. Middle East exports are being explored and shall bring results in a year or two."
The dates are grown under modern conditions with computerised drip irrigation and fertilizing systems.
Packing is done according to standards set by the international and domestic market, with 500 gram plastic punnets and attractive jars for malls and premium outlets. Also eye-catching 1kg to 5 kg green, eco-friendly corrugated box packing, bigger and customized packing is available for loose and wholesale sales.
Barhi dates are sold under the brand name of Gorasiya farm and Banni.
