Meghalaya pineapples exported to Abu Dhabi

| @indiablooms | 16 Aug 2023, 03:15 pm

Riding on the efforts of Jamge Integrated Village Cooperative Society (IVCS) and the State government, pineapples from Meghalaya are currently being exported to Abu Dhabi.

The pineapples of the state are grown on the fertile slopes of Garo Hills.

They are known for their sweet taste and low pesticide residue.

The IVCS has over 250 farming households from across four villages, who produce almost 100 tonnes of pineapples each year, reports North East Now.

The pineapples are being exported to Lulu Group, a leading retail chain in the Middle East. The LuLu Group will be marketing the pineapples in its stores across the UAE, the news portal reported.

The export of the fruit is a sign of the growing economic ties between Meghalaya and the Middle East.
