Badal gives nod to export 20,000 metric tonnes of kinnow


Chandigarh :  Taking a leap forward for promoting agriculture diversification in the state, Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal has given nod to the proposal of Punjab Agro Corporation to export 20000 Metric Tonnes (MTs) of kinnow from the state in the coming season.
Stating this here today, a spokesperson of the Chief Minister’s Office said a decision to this effect was taken by the Chief Minister after the successful venture to export around 5000 MTs of kinnow to Russia, Ukraine and Middle East in last year.
Mr Badal has asked Punjab Agro Managing Director K S Pannu to take all possible measures to set up sufficient cold chain infrastructure in Punjab in next four months for ensuring long distance marketing of kinnow in domestic and international market. This move was likely to immensely benefit the kinnow growers of the state.
