Australian Trade Minister visits Asia’s largest fruit and vegetable wholesale market, Azadpur
Australian Minister for Trade, Investment and Tourism, the Hon Steve Ciobo MP, visited the New Fruit Market, Azadpur today to inspect the largest fruit wholesale market in Asia.
Australia currently exports counter season fresh fruit to India including citrus, apples, pears, stone fruits, table grapes, and cherries. Mr Ciobo is keen to see this trade grow and expand. Australia is also importing fruit from India and has recently increased the number of facilities accredited to export mangoes to Australia. In addition Australia has world-class technologies and services for the production, handling, storage, and marketing of fresh produce that has potential application in India to increase the efficiency of India’s food value chains and reduce losses.
Mr Ciobo is currently leading the largest Australian business delegation to visit India in several years, including some of Australia’s leading agricultural and food companies.
