Uttar Pradesh is the biggest exporter of mangoes in the world. This is the reason why the government is paying special attention to packaging along with increasing the quality of mangoes. This will increase the export of mangoes and increase the income of mango traders and along with this, mango farmers can also benefit from it.

The State Minister of Agriculture Marketing and Agricultural Export, Dinesh Pratap Singh, said that the king of fruits, mango, has its own unique identity especially in Uttar Pradesh. Different varieties are produced in a large area and there are possibilities of income along with self-employment in mango production. The state government is constantly making efforts to promote the quality, diversity and different varieties of mango.

For this, special emphasis is being laid on increasing the sale and consumption of mango by bringing together the packhouses, exporters, retailers, restaurants and the general public on one platform for mango producers. This three-day mango festival is being organised to provide information about the entire chain of mango export.

More than 100 stalls will be set up to showcase more than 800 mangoes

The Horticulture Minister said that all the mango farmers, committees, self-help groups, pack houses, food processors, exporters, traders, nursery owners, machinery and equipment suppliers, researchers, scientists will also participate in the Mango Festival-2024. More than 800 varieties of mango will be displayed in the Mango Festival 2024. More than 100 stalls are being set up this year. Various dishes and delicacies made from mango will also be displayed in the Mango Festival, along with a competition of mango dishes prepared by the participants will also be organized.

Competitions and training seminars will be organized in AAP Mahotsav

This year, a special attraction will be the display of more than 120 varieties in the mango variety exhibition. On this occasion, a buyer-seller meet of mango producers-sellers and buyers-exporters will be organized to provide a platform to mango buyers and sellers, so that action can be taken for more effective marketing of mango in other states as well. Along with this, various competitions and training seminars will be organized. Apart from the state, representatives of the horticulture department, progressive gardeners and exporters of Madhya Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan and other states will participate in the Mango Festival.

Integrated testing and treatment park will be built to promote mango export

The Horticulture Minister said that the Mango Festival is giving the agricultural products of the state a place in the national and world market. It is proposed to build an Integrated Testing and Treatment Park near Jewar Airport for direct export of mangoes and other fruits and vegetables from the state to other countries through cargo and to promote export from the state to other countries. This will reduce the huge expenditure incurred by the state on export of fruits and vegetables to other countries so that farmers can get the benefit of their products.

He said that more than 58 lakh metric tonnes of mango is produced in an area of ​​3.20 lakh hectares in the state. This year, for the first time in the beginning of June, mango has been exported to America from Uttar Pradesh with the efforts of Central Institute of Subtropical Horticulture, Rehmankheda, Lucknow. So far in the month of June 2024, 70 metric tonnes of mango has been exported.
