Dhenkanal district sends first shipment of Amrapalli mangoes ever to Dubai

Due to the abundant mango harvest in Dhenkanal district this year, the district has bagged the top spot in the state with the production of 50,000 tons of mangoes. While this seasonal fruit usually has high demand in India's metro cities such as Mumbai, Kolkata, and Delhi, this year, a direct consignment of 2.5 tons of Amrapalli mangoes was exported to Dubai from Dhenkanal for the first time ever.

District Collector Saroj Kumar Sethi flagged off the consignment for export in the presence of district Horticulture department assistant director Geetashree Padhi, eastern zonal head of APEDA Sitakanta Mandal, all India member and eastern region board member Sukanta Kumar Panigrahi, Paaf global private limited managing director Subrat Ghosh, and mango farmer Subrat Das were present.
