The export of mangoes to the UK from Rajshahi have begun. The first consignment of 3 tons of the fruit has been sent to Dhaka for packaging. The growers’ group contacted exporters who are likely to buy some 300 tons of mangoes.
“There is a plan to export around 300 tons of mangoes from Bagha this year. No mangoes were exported from here last year. But 35 tons of mangoes were exported from Bagha two years back,” said a spokesman.
