APEDA promotes exports of ODOP and GI products to newer destinations

Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA) has taken several steps to ensure that more and more of its Scheduled products are exported to newer destinations. In this regard, special emphasis is towards the ODOP and GI products, and also on sourcing these exports from non-traditional areas/states. As of this date, APEDA scheduled products are being exported worldwide to more than 203 countries/territories. To give this a further fillip, more than 27 flag-offs were organised in the current financial year. Some of the notable new flag-offs of export shipments were:

APEDA is also actively involved in capacity-building initiatives for FPOs as they are increasingly recognised as essential aggregators of farm produce, pivotal in streamlining the supply chain and ensuring efficient market access for farmers. With a focus on enabling direct exports, APEDA has transformed 119 FPOs/FPCs into exporters over five years. Through tailored support and guidance, these FPOs have enhanced their capabilities to navigate global markets, amplifying the presence of Indian agricultural products on the international stage.
