Maharashtra exporters upbeat as mango export via sea are successful

Last month, the Maharashtra state Agricultural Marketing Board led a successful experiment to send mangoes by sea. This success has left exporters upbeat that it would open more markets for them. For this, MSAMB collaborated with the Bhabha Atomic Research Center (BARC) to increase the shelf life of mangoes and prevent their over-ripening during the journey.

M/S Sanap Agroanimals Private Limited took the initiative to send mangoes by sea. The process involved dipping the fruit in Sodium Hypocholride solution at 52 degree celsius and then treating the same in a special chemical solution developed by BARC. This treated mango was packed into boxes of three kg each and then shipped by the sea route. The consignment was flagged off by MSAMB managing director Sunil Pawar on June 5. The consignment reached in 25 days and the mangoes were in excellent condition.
