Prabhu stated that India is already the biggest producer of milk and the second largest producer of fruits that allows India to hold a huge probability to export. He added that the government has noted down which product can be exported from which district and each district will be divided into zones for that. For instance, Nasik has been recognized for grapes, Ratnagiri for mangoes, Nagpur for oranges, and so on. The government is working on this matter with the states in order to smooth this arrangement. The export policy has unfastened limitation on the export of both organic and horticultural products. Moreover, the UAE and Saudi Arabia are looking forward to investing in both kinds of products.
