In India, there are numerous sayings and proverbs related to “mangoes,” but what’s making headlines now is India’s growing influence as one of the world’s leading mango exporters. Mukesh Ambani, one of Asia’s largest mango exporters, owns a mango orchard spanning over 600 acres. Now, this magic of Indian mangoes has reached the United States, where in just 5 months, over 2000 tons of Indian mangoes have been cleared.
The Ministry of Commerce has released export figures for mangoes from India from April to August. According to these figures, India exported 27,330.02 tons of mangoes in the initial five months of the current fiscal year. In comparison, last year during the same period, India had exported only 22,963.78 tons of mangoes. India has earned 400.39 crore rupees from mango exports during April to August. This shows a 19% growth compared to the 336.16 crore rupees from the previous year.
America imports the most mangoes from India. In these 5 months, the USA imported 2043.60 tons of mangoes from India. Additionally, Japan imported 43 tons, New Zealand 111 tons, Australia 58.42 tons, and South Africa 4.44 tons of mangoes from India. Iran, Mauritius, the Czech Republic, and Nigeria also feature among the countries that have imported large quantities of mangoes from India.
This year, India has benefited significantly from this. To boost mango exports, India invited the United States Department of Agriculture and the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service for inspections to ensure quality before exports. This led to a substantial increase in mango exports to the United States. American inspectors visited cities like Vashi, Nasik, Bangalore, and Ahmedabad to evaluate mango irradiation facilities.
Not only the USA but India also worked on obtaining pre-clearance for mango exports from South Korea. This effort resulted in successful mango exports of 18.43 tons of fruits.
Indian mangoes are truly making their mark on the global stage, becoming a delightful treat worldwide.
