North­east or­ganic prod­ucts to cater to rest of In­dia

Rural & Marketing - - UPDATES -

The or­ganic prod­ucts, pro­duced in the North-East­ern Re­gion of In­dia are slated for cater­ing the con­sumers re­sid­ing in rest of In­dia. The Min­istry of Development of North­East­ern Re­gion (DoNER) is go­ing to make suit­able ar­range­ments for show­cas­ing the prod­ucts out­side of the re­gion. An ini­tia­tive in this direction has al­ready be­gun with the open­ing up, re­cently, of a Show­room-cumRes­tau­rant bear­ing a com­mon brand name “ONE” (Or­ganic North East) at Dilli Haat.

This was in­formed by Union Min­is­ter of State (IC) for Development of North East­ern Re­gion (DoNER), Dr Ji­ten­dra Singh while chair­ing a meet­ing of NERAMAC (North East­ern Re­gional Agri­cul­tural Mar­ket­ing Cor­po­ra­tion) at Guwahati in As­sam. The Min­is­ter said, peo­ple in other parts of the coun­try are yet to be in­tro­duced to the rich and ex­clu­sive or­ganic pro­duce of the North­East­ern re­gion and once this hap­pens, they would spon­ta­neously come look­ing for it. This would not only give a boost to trade and busi­ness, but also cre­ate op­por­tu­ni­ties of liveli­hood.
