Promotion of exports of agriculture products, including dairy products like curd and cheese, is a continuous process. To promote the export of dairy products, an Export Promotion Forum (EPF) has been constituted under the aegis of Agricultural & Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA). The EPF has representation from trade/industry, line Ministries/Departments, regulatory agencies, research institutes, state governments etc. Meetings of the EPF are held regularly to discuss the various issues affecting exports, such as SPS/ TBT issues, market access issues, plans for export promotion and capacity building programmes etc. Recommendations made by the EPFs are passed on to the relevant authorities for appropriate action.

 

Mathura and Banaskantha districts in Uttar Pradesh and Gujarat respectively have been identified as clusters for export of dairy products. APEDA has organized awareness cum capacity-building programmes for farmers/Farmer-Producer Organisations (FPOs) in these clusters. APEDA also provides assistance to exporters of dairy products under various components of its export promotion scheme.

 

This information was given by the Minister of State in the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Smt. Anupriya Patel, in a written reply in the Lok Sabha today.
