The exports of grapes have grown during the past three years. The government has not received any reports of grape producers and exporters having incurred heavy losses on export of grapes during the period.

The promotion of exports of agricultural products like grapes is a continuous process. The government is seeking to export grapes to newer areas/countries by filing market access requests for grapes with a number of countries. Under the Agriculture Export Policy, Pune, Nasik and Sangli districts of Maharashtra have been identified as clusters for export-oriented production of grapes.

An incentive of seven per cent is available on the export of grapes under the Merchandise Exports from India Scheme (MEIS). The Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA), an autonomous organisation under the administrative control of Department of Commerce, has been mandated with the export promotion of grapes.

APEDA has implemented GrapeNet, which is a Web-based service offered to the stakeholders for facilitating the testing and certification of grapes for export from India in compliance with the standards identified by NRC Pune, on the basis of consultation with the exporters.

GrapeNet collects, stores and reports – forward and backward traces and quality assurance data entered by the stakeholders within the grapes supply chain in India. Moreover, APEDA has also been providing assistance to the grape exporters under various components of its export promotion scheme.

This information was given by commerce and industry ministry Piyush Goyal in a written reply in the Lok Sabha recently.
