Agricultural & Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA), in association with the India Trade Promotion Organization (ITPO), organised Asia’s biggest B2B international food and hospitality fair AAHAR commencing from April 26 – 30, 2022 at Pragati Maidan.
APEDA is organizing the 36th edition of AAHAR with the theme “Geographical Indication Products”.
As per the DGCI&S data, the agricultural exports have grown by 19.92 per cent during 2021-22 to touch USD 50.21 billion.
The growth rate is remarkable as it is over and above the growth of 17.66 per cent at USD 41.87 billion achieved in 2020-21.
APEDA has scripted a new history by exporting agricultural and processed food products to the tune of USD 25.6 billion, which is 51 per cent of the India’s total agriculture exports of USD 50 billion.
The rise in export of agricultural and processed food products has been largely due to the various initiatives taken by APEDA such as organizing B2B exhibitions in different countries, exploring new potential markets through product specific and general marketing campaigns by active involvement of Indian Embassies. “The visionary approach, aggressive and consistent efforts of APEDA have enabled India to position itself as a consistent and quality supplier of agri products.
