Myanmar to export dried areca nuts to India 200 tonnes monthly

According to information reported by areca palm growers, Myanmar plans to export approximately 200 tonnes of dried areca nuts to India every month.
Preparations are underway to transport the first batch of 17 tonnes of dried areca nuts in a 20-ft container to obtain approval for quality. The plan has been agreed upon by India’s Lax Corporation Company and local areca palm growers in Myanmar, as per the report.
Areca nuts are predominantly grown in the Taninthayi Region, Mon State, Ayeyawady Region, and Kayin State. Approximately 230,000 tonnes of areca nuts are produced annually.
Bangladesh is the primary purchaser of areca nuts, and Myanmar exported nearly 2,000 tonnes to Bangladesh in the 2021-22 financial year, according to statistics released by the Ministry of Commerce. — TWA/ TMT
