Despite Covid-19, India’s food exports up 27 pct since March
Despite economic turbulence due to Covid-19, India`s overall food exports since March have increased 27 per cent. According to the Trade Promotion Council of India (TPCI), the average growth of 27 per cent during the lockdown and the unlock period came on the back of high demand for food-based items.
“The food sector has shown 27 per cent growth. The major markets that have responded well are the US and Canada,” TPCI Chairman Mohit Singla said at the Indo-Canadian virtual “buyer-seller meet (BSM) on food & beverages.”
