Kochi: The Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA) organised the shipment of Kerala’s GI-tagged Marayoor Jaggery to Toronto, Canada on Wednesday.

The shipment was flagged off by Sanjay Kumar Verma, High Commissioner of India in Canada, in a virtual event led by APEDA. The jaggery, sourced from Anchunadu Karimbu Ulpadhana Vipanana Sangham based in Idukki, was reportedly shipped by Nilamel Exports.

“The jaggery exports from India to Canada has gone up significantly over the past few years,” said Sanjay Kumar Verma.

India accounts for 70 per cent of the total jaggery production in the world. In 2021-2022, India exported 5.51 lakh ton jaggery worth USD 37.52. Of which, around 12.14 per cent exports were from Kerala.

According to reports, the major jaggery exports from Kerala in 2021-22 were to countries such as UAE, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar, Kuwait and UK among others.
