Despite Covid-19 complications

India’s organic exports increase by 51%

Despite the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, India’s organic export has increased by 51% in the fiscal year 2020-21 as compared to the fiscal year 2019-20. India is now also ranked amongst the top ten exporting countries in agriculture, and the overall exports have been growing at an extremely significant rate.

“Despite the pandemic challenges, we were able to achieve this feat and it strengthens India’s positioning as an exporter globally,” said Joint Secretary in the Agriculture Ministry Priya Ranjan while addressing a seminar ‘Indian Organic and Horticulture Sector—moving up the value chain’ at Dubai Expo 2020 on Monday.

“To ensure the quality of our organic produce, we need to have a robust system of Certification, and the Government of India has anchored two systems of certification for Organic products,” Sahu said while emphasizing to make appropriate phytosanitary protocols for better acceptability of Indian Organic and Horticulture Products. “We envisage targeting 10% export share in the global fruits and vegetable market by 2030”, he added.
