GUWAHATI: Now Guwahati vegetables are going global as the produce from Assam as well as the entire Northeast have found a place in the markets of Europe.

In a boost to local farmers, the state is now exporting indigenously produced vegetables to places like London and Doha. Vegetables including flat beans, radish and Brinjal were dispatched from Guwahati airport on November 3.   

Informing about the same, State Health and Family Welfare Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma tweeted: “Glad that in a unique intervention to support Farmers Producer Organisations (FPO) IndiGo6E dispatched about one tonne of vegetables from Guwahati airport to Kolkata then London & Doha. Happy that my idea of 1st Cargo end-to-end solution with FPOs has fructified.”

Further, Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority under the central government’s ministry of commerce and industry also tweeted: “APEDA in its ever striving effort has facilitated another consignment containing flat beans, radish & Brinjal (egg plant) from Guwahati Airport to London and Doha on 3rd November 2018.”
