  10. Production of Selected Commodities Fruits [ in 000 MT] Cebeco India

  11. Existing Exports Export volumes of fruits & vegetables : 25,000 tons Exit Points : Thiruvanathapuram [80%], Kochi [10%], Kozhikode [10%] Export Basket : Plantain [65%], Ethnic Vegetables [30%] Markets : Gulf [90%], Maldives, Mauritius, European Countries.

  13. Target Markets [Contd…] Gulf Countries - Major Destination • Sizable population of NRIs / NRKs • Nendran and Ethnic vegetables are sourced only from Kerala to supply to NRKs in Gulf Cebeco India

  14. Export Projections (Qty. in 000’MT and value in crores) • Present availability of Indian fruits & vegetables to NRIs in Gulf is only 8 kgs. per person as compared to availability of 150 kgs per person in India. Therefore, immense potential for increasing export. • Incremental export to the tune of Rs. 125 crores from fifth year onwards Cebeco India

  15. Economics of Banana Exports With the use of marine transport, there would be substantial reduction in the landed cost of banana. Cebeco India

  16. Interventions • Development of Cold Chain • Development of Protocols for post-harvest handling of banana and pineapple. • Use of cheaper marine transportation • Pre-harvest management for quality enhancement for selected fruits and vegetables. • Promotion of mono-crop of banana and vegetables for improved and consistent exportable quality. • Value addition to banana chips through manufacture by automated lines, packaging and branding Cebeco India

For extension of activities in Kollam and Alappuzha, GOK has sanctioned an amount of Rs. 1.3 crores. These two districts are in proposed AEZ. - GOK invested 48 crores in commercial and homestead production of fruits and vegetables and Rs. 5 crores in agri-biotech centre for making available tissue cultured plants. - GOK to make available Government farms (500 ha) to farmers / self help groups /exporters for cultivation of fruits and vegetables meant exclusively for exports.
