Preparations in full swing for 75 varieties of mangoes to be exported

In a special initiative to celebrate 75 years of independence, 75 species of mangoes from West Bengal’s Malda and Murshidabad districts will be exported to other countries. The Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority has launched a joint initiative with the state horticulture department and has started planning for the next few days regarding the export of mangoes abroad to countries including Qatar and Dubai.

Last year, 34 varieties of mangoes from the state were exported abroad. Most of mangoes were from Malda district. Three varieties of Malda mangoes have already received the GI tag. Besides those mangoes, there is a special initiative to send other delicious mangoes abroad.

The plan is to export mangoes abroad immediately after harvest. To implement the plan, a special training camp was organized with the mango farmers of the District Horticulture Department. Mango growers were trained to correct all the maintenance mistakes that they make. Also, four exporters from Kolkata were brought to Malda under the initiative by APEDA.
