Popular Amrapali variety of mangoes are now being sold in Swiss supermarkets

The sweet smell of Bangladeshi mangoes has reached Switzerland with the export of the first package of mangoes to the country on July 14.

The country's popular variety Amrapali Mangoes are now selling in the supermarkets in Switzerland, in fact, showcasing the traditional culture of Bangladesh in Europe, according to a Facebook post of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Bangladesh.

It has been possible for the initiative taken by Bangladesh Permanent Mission in Geneva. 

In the last few years, the demand for mangoes in Switzerland has increased, according to a study conducted by Bangladesh mission, said the post.

A Bangladeshi living in Geneva for 20 years said that he was very happy to see the label of Bangladeshi mangoes at a shop. 

“I actually forgot the taste of Bangladeshi mangoes. Thanks to BD Mission for providing the opportunity to have the old taste again,” he said. 

Switzerland, the noted diplomatic hub having a population of 3.5 million can be a promising destination for Bangladeshi mangoes if trade relations are maintained while ensuring export quality of the agro products, including mangoes. 

State Minister for Foreign Affairs, M Shahriar Alam, made the disclosure through a post on his Facebook account that Bangladesh started exporting mangoes to Switzerland thanks to a private initiative.

“The North Bengal Agro Farm Ltd has started exporting mangoes of Rajshahi to Switzerland. The first shipment is scheduled to leave here for Switzerland this evening,” the state minister wrote on Facebook.
