Last month, Mizoram had exported fresh pineapples to Dubai and Bahrain.

Speaking on the occasion, Lalrinsanga said that there is huge demand of Mizoram grown vegetables and fruits in other parts of the country.

He said that the state should increase its harvest in order to meet the demands of people outside the state.

He said that the export of pineapples to other states and foreign countries will give an impetus to the government and the local farmers.

He urged the farmers to increase their harvest in order to increase export.

Ruling Mizo National Front (MNF) MLA Dr ZR Thiamsanga, who was present at the flag off function, said that the government is giving top priority to farmers.

He said that the council of ministers meeting has recently allowed locally grown grapes to be legally processed as wine and sold freely in the markets.

Clover Organic Private Limited has been assigned as service provider to Tuichangral Organic FPC.
