Challenges faced by the mango suppliers

India’s mango exports have been increasing steadily, but when we compare the number with India’s overall output and the world’s export market, the figure appears to be very low. One of the primary reasons why India is not exporting much is that most fresh mangoes are traded within short distances. A report by the National Horticulture Board states that India and Pakistan are the main suppliers of mangoes to West Asia, while the Philippines and Thailand are the main fruit supplier to Southeast Asia.

Due to the use of pesticides in India, the US banned mango imports from our country. Although the ban was removed in 2007, the exports are still too less.
