Assam has started exporting jackfruit and green chilli to Dubai from here, officials said on Saturday.

The shipment was reported Friday night by Dhubri Deputy Commissioner MP Anbamuthan from Bilasipara City at Lokapriyo Gopinath Bordoloi Airport from where it will depart for Mumbai on its journey to Dubai on Saturday.

The shipment included 1.5 tonnes of tender jackfruit and 0.5 tonnes of green chilli and will be distributed by Lulu Group International through its chain of over 200 supermarkets and hypermarkets in the Gulf countries.

The whole process was coordinated by the Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA) and they provided all the necessary technical support for this purpose, Anbamuthan said.

“This is a special day for the agro-economic sector in Dhubri district as well as for the whole of Assam. Thanks to the relentless efforts of the district administration and the farmers, we are able to export jackfruit and green chilli from Dhubri in Dubai,” the DC said. .

Dhubri produces several agricultural products that have export potential and this particular opportunity arose at an exhibition organized by APEDA in Guwahati where members of the Agricultural Producers Organization (FPO) met for the first times the representative of Lulu Group International, he added.

The FPO i.e. Green Chilli Producer Organization Cooperative Society Ltd which has 560 farmer shareholders from Bilasipara region and Nayer Alga Development Block produced the exported items, which will continue on a weekly basis.

Lulu Group’s international managing director, Ravi Kumar, said that if they get the required customers for these two products, they will continue to export from Dhubri.
