APEDA holds Buyer-Seller meet at State’s Vegetable Hub
Agriculture and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA), has organized a one-day workshop cum training program. The buyer-seller meet was held at Bero in Ranchi Districts. Interestingly, this place is a horticultural hub of Jharkhand.
Therefore, APEDA held a Buyer-Seller meet at State’s Horticultural hub to promote the participation of farmers. Furthermore, The main focus of APEDA’s Buyer-Seller meets in Ranchi was to positively impact farmers belonging to Scheduled Cast (SC) and Scheduled Tribes (Scheduled Tribes).
Key Highlights of APEDA’s Buyer-Seller meet
Approximately, 50 progressive farmers from neighboring Bero and exporters having APEDA registration from all across the State were participating in the meet.

Chief Guest on the Buyer-Seller Meet
Sunny Toppo, Chief Social Officer and Progressive Farmer, states that the farmers of the block produce different types of horticulture products through hard work.
However, they don’t get the right price for their goods due to many reasons and the inability to find the market. Thus, he highlights that the economic conditions of farmers will improve significantly as they get opportunities to sell their crops at the right price in the market.
Toppo also requests APEDA to conduct a campaign to raise awareness among the farmers of the hamlet and to set up cold storage in Bero as soon as possible.
Why does APEDA hold such meetings?
To promote and expand the export of scheduled commodities, the Indian government established the governmental authority in 1985. This statutory body is responsible, among other tasks, for encouraging exports of scheduled items from India.
This body is none other than APEDA. That’s why APEDA Registration is mandatory for every individual or company working in the export business of scheduled products.
Benefits of APEDA Registration and participating in such meetings
Professor BK Jha, Birsa Agri University (BAU), states that Jharkhand is a potential export market. For instance, fresh fruits, vegetables, honey, and other organic products are present in Jharkhand. Therefore, he highlights the benefits to farmers and exporters having APEDA Registration in doing business at these meetings.
In addition, Sandeep Saha, Regional In-charge(APEDA) states that these meetings will benefit hardworking farmers of Jharkhand as they will now be more aware of exporting some of the major crops grown by them to other countries.
