The Kinnow export market is constantly growing. With the introduction of modern equipment and practices, the production has become more efficient and has resulted in a better quality of crop that has improved the overall standard made available to the buyers and consumers.
The Indian Kinnow market is seeing a steady growth of approximately 40% every year in its Kinnow exports. The major buyers in this market are Dubai, Bangladesh, and Russia. New markets are being explored in Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand and this is an indicator that the export quantities will only increase further with time.
Kinnow is exported after being treated in waxing plants under severe guidelines and supervision to ensure good preservation and avoid bruising of fruits. The smaller fruits, which are not being consumed are being juiced, packaged, and then exported through cold pressed channels in the country or being exported outside in raw form to be juiced outside and packaged. This has added versatility to the fruit and opened more markets for this wonder fruit.
Predictions state that soon this market will average an approximate amount of 25000 tonnes in exports at rates ranging from Rs.6 per kilogram to Rs. 8 per kilogram. This will grow at an average of 40% every year and will soon become a key industry in the fruit export arena of india.
The biggest competitor in this market for India currently is Pakistan and with the addition of technology and new ways of farming, India is slowly progressing to the finish line. If we keep up the pace, India will soon be recognized as one of the largest Kinnow exporters in the world.
