Pune, 27th June 2023: Maharashtra State Agricultural Marketing Board’s Export Facilitation Center at Vashi has witnessed a significant surge in mango exports. As of June 23, a total of 974.89 tonnes of mangoes have been exported, marking a remarkable increase of one and a half times compared to previous years. Notably, the highest export of 806 tons has been to the United States.

Milind Joshi, Deputy General Manager of the Board of Marketing, provided insights into the export statistics. During this season, 41.64 tons were exported to Japan, 86.26 tons to New Zealand, 3.88 tons to South Korea, 0.46 tons to Malaysia, 27.29 tons to Australia, and 8.60 tons to European countries. However, the United States stands out with the highest export of 806 tons. In contrast, last year’s export amounted to 576 tonnes, whereas this year’s export has already reached 974.89 tonnes by the end of June 23.

Mango varieties such as Hapus, Kesar, and Baiganpalli (badami) are the main exports from the country. This year, shipments of Hapus, Kesar, and badami mangoes were sent to Japan on April 8 and to America on April 11.

Exports to the US and South Korea have now ceased, as the inspection teams from both countries have returned home. This year marked the first-time mangoes were exported from Vashi to South Korea. Meanwhile, the export of mangoes produced in the Junnar area of Maharashtra continues. Additionally, mango exports from South and North India are also ongoing.

Despite a significant decrease in Hapus mango production in Konkan this year, exportable production remained steady. The availability of Hapus, Kesar, and Baiganpalli (badami) mangoes compensated for the decline. With an average increase of one and a half times compared to the previous year, a total of 974.89 tonnes of mangoes have been exported by June 23. Considering that mango exports from South and North India are still underway, the export figures are likely to rise further.

The Board of Trade has established a state-of-the-art export center facility in Vashi, enabling mango exports from across the country. The continuous growth in exports can be attributed to the selection and export of quality mangoes by the traders of Vashi Bazar Committee. It is worth noting that direct exports from farmers or agro-producer companies appear to be relatively limited, as stated by Milind Joshi, Deputy Director of the Board of Marketing.
