Grape Export

The MSAMB promoted an organisation called MAHAGRAPES to boost the export of grapes. MAHAGRAPES is regularly exporting around 100 -120 containers to Europe and Middle East. They could establish their brand in the European markets. MSAMB also helped farmers co-operative societies to establish their own pre-cooling and cold storage units, by providing them technology and guidance. From the year 2003 the packhouses which are being used for Grape export are recognized by APEDA.  MSAMB’s export facility center, Dindori Dist- Nasik  has played important role in export of grapes to Europe since  last three years. Also there lies a tremendous potential for  export of grapes and pomegranates from Atpadi export facility center of MSAMB.

Pomegranate Exports

Pomegranate is another important fruit grown in Maharashtra. Its usage and medicinal properties made this fruit more important and gradually increasing demand in the international markets like Europe & USA. MSAMB has taken a lead and successfully exported the pomegranate containers to UAE. Initally the demand was only in gulf countries, however MSAMB realized the need of the export oriented infrastructure for pomegranates and with the help of APEDA, MSAMB has established the export facility centers for pomegranates at Baramati, Indapur,Atpadi, Latur, Kalwan and Chandwad. About 1.85 Mts pomegranates exported from irradiation facility of MSAMB, there lies a tremendous potential for export of pomegranates to USA.

Mandarin Exports

The Nagpur mandarin is a loose Jacket orange and to ensure that it reaches distant markets with least post-harvest losses during shipping, it must be devoid of pre-harvest infection by fungal organisms and skin attachments must be tight for prolonged shelf life. The Nagpur mandarin has unique features easily separable skin and segments from each other, comparatively low seed content and low acids. An export of mandarins from India is not a common phenomenon. In the history for the first time one trial container of Nagpur Mandarins was sent to UAE in the year 2002, and it reached in very good condition. MSAMB has exported one container of Nagpur mandarins to Holland in the year 2005 and achieved good results.  MSAMB has developed a export facility centers at Karnja (Gh) Dist- Wardha and Varud Dist- Amaravati.Nagpur Mandarins exported to Srilanka and Gulf countries.

In spite of the huge production of banana in the state of Maharashtra, the export is negligible. MSAMB is the pioneer of export of banana from Maharashtra state. For the first time one 40 feet container was exported in the year 2002 to UAE and the results are very encouraging. MSAMB has exported the banana 16 MT in February 2005 to Dubai through 40' Refer container from Mahabanana, Jalgaon. MSAMB has developed  export facility centers for Banana at Raver, Dist. Jalgaon ,  Basmatnagar, Dist.Hingoli and Indapur dist. Pune (under progress) which includes mechanical handling system, pre-cooling, cold storage and ripening chamber.
