In order to minimise the export cost, APEDA and ICAR-NRCB have inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for a consultancy project, titled Development of Sea Protocol for the Trial Sea Shipment of Traditional Nendran banana to Dubai, in partnership with Fair Exports India Pvt Ltd, Kochi.
The demand for traditional varieties of good-quality ethnic bananas from India is increasing, which is giving rise to the export of the fruit in huge volumes. Thus, the development of the sea protocol was a pre-requisite to meet this increasing demand.
A team of experts from the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR)-National Research Centre for Banana (NRCB), along with the constant support of the Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA) and the officials led by Fair Exports (India) Pvt Ltd, accomplished the task with the successful sailing of two consignments.
