Mango Buyer Seller Meet (BSM) held in Mumbai
APEDA organized a Mango Buyer Seller Meet (BSM) in the hub of mango production and trade i.e. Mumbai, Maharashtra on 5th and 6th June 2017 at New Mumbai, Maharashtra.
The BSM was organized with an objective to publicize Indian mangoes across the world. Twenty four importers attended the Buyer Seller Meet representing seven countries namely China, Iran, Australia, Japan, Mauritius, Republic of Korea and UAE.
The event was a great success and this could have been possible due to the support of Embassies and High Commissions of India extended to APEDA.
State Horticulture Departments from leading mango producing states namely of India attended the meet and showcased their popular commercial and rare regional varieties of mangoes.
The visitors were exposed to vast range of commercial varieties of mangoes grown and exported by India. A live sampling section was kept where they tasted the mango variety of their choice.
The BSM generated a confidence among the Importers about the capability of Indian exporters to supply quality mangoes in large quantities.
A day long field visit was organized for the importers to see common infrastructure facilities setup by APEDA which generated confidence among the international delegates about the common infrastructure created by APEDA for handling and treatment of mangoes.
The response received from the visitors was overwhelming and has encouraged APEDA to organize such BSM for other potential produce i.e. pomegranates and grapes in future.
The event has benefitted for both the importers and exporters to come to a common platform.
A comprehensive report has been prepared by APEDA and the same is made available at our website in the following link for your reference.
