NEW DELHI: After a gap of two years, the export of mangoes and by-products is expected to see a spurt after India and the US agreed to simplify the rules, Apeda, the agency responsible for the export of food products, has said.
While the mango season is nearly four months away, export of pomegranates is expected to commence soon and shipments from India can move through the year as there are three crops in the country, Apeda chairman M Angamuthu told TOI.
On Saturday, the government announced that it had agreed on a deal with the US to allow the import of American cherries, Alfalfa hay in return for Indian mangoes and pomegranate exports. What the new rules mean is that the US and India can follow joint protocol on irradiation, which can be certified by US inspectors at their port, or they can accept Indian certification too and visit some of the facilities.
Angamuthu said that the Apeda expects a significant jump in mango exports. Exports of mango (including by-products) to the US were estimated at close to Rs 100 crore two years ago. Angamuthu said that in addition to alphonso, kesar and some of the varieties from the South, Apeda will seek to push langda, Dussehri, Jardalu and Himsagar.
