Northeast organic products to cater to rest of India
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.
