Lucknow's new AC Fruit Market is an advanced facility, equipped with centralised air conditioning. Before, the Uttar Pradesh market did not have any specific facilities for storage of mango and other fruits, because of which, the fear of damage and depreciation always lingered over these products.
Now, the new market with upgraded technology comes with a storage capacity of 5000 tonnes, guaranteeing excellent storage for all the fruits produced in the state.
To preserve the quality of fruits, a ripening chamber has been set up that comes with integrated facilities like temperature regulation amongst other things. This facility will not only keep the fruits fresh but also ensure that they last for a longer time. It is anticipated that the new market would accelerate the business of local varieties of fruits including 'Safeda' and 'Dashehri' mangoes, taking them to national and international platforms.
