Assam exported its first commercial consignment of 1.5 tonnes of tender jackfruits from Dhubri district to Dubai on Friday, April 8.

The consignment of jackfruit and 0.5 tonnes of green chillies from Bilasipara town was flagged off by Dhubri Deputy Commissioner (DC) Anbamuthan MP.

The Deputy Commissioner stated that this consignment is a huge boost to northeast India’s agro exports to the Middle East.

He said, “It is a special day for the agro-economics sector of Dhubri district as well as for the entire Assam. With relentless efforts of the district administration and farmers, we were able to export jackfruit and green chilli from Dhubri to Dubai.”

According to reports, these two items will be distributed by an Indian multinational conglomerate based in the United Arab Emirates through its network of over 200 supermarkets and hypermarkets in Gulf countries.

The Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA), which is part of the Union Ministry of Commerce and Industry, was in charge of coordinating the export process.
