Fruits Export by India for 2012-13 As per Indian Horticulture database 2012 published by the National Horticulture Board, the production of fruits in 2011 was 76.42 million tonnes whereas the export of fruits in 2011-12 was only 0.44 million tonnes amounting to only 0.57 % of production. The low share in exports vis-a-vis production is because of high domestic consumption, fragmented supply chain, small land holdings, lack of appropriate infrastructure, high cost of logistics, difficulties in meeting global standards, high international transportation costs, etc.

Government has been providing various incentives for augmenting export of fruits. The Government through APEDA provides financial assistance to exporters for following activities under its plan scheme: (i) For brand publicity through advertisement, packaging, participation in international trade fairs, opening of new markets etc under Market Development Scheme. ( i) For setting up sorting/grading facilities, pack houses, effluent treatment plants, water softening plants, intermediate storage sheds etc. Financial assistance to State Government agencies for setting up of integrated post harvest facilities such as Centres for Perishable Cargo (CPCs), integrated post harvest facilities etc. under Infrastructure Development scheme. ( i) For purchase of laboratory testing equipment, implementation of quality management systems like ISO/HACCP/TNC/BRC/TQM/GAP, reimbursement of testing charges for analysis of water, soil, residues of pesticides etc, up gradation of laboratories for export testing, export oriented need based research under Quality Development Scheme. (iv)To mitigate the disadvantage of the high air/sea freight and for increasing competitiveness in international market for the identified horticulture products and destinations under Transport Assistance Scheme. In addition to the above, incentives are also available under Focus Market and Focus Product schemes and VKGUY schemes of the Department of Commerce.
