First Indian mangoes shipped to Europe by sea

 

India’s Uttar Pradesh state has shipped its first container of mangoes to Europe, according to The Times of India. A cargo of ten tons of the Chausa variety was shipped to Italy by the State Agricultural Produce Markets Board. Previously, the mangoes were sent by air, but given the high cost of freight, the fruit wasn’t competitive. As the transit time by sea is 20 days, the mangoes are now packed using technology that increases the fruit’s shelf-life.
