UP is among the top agricultural, horticultural and dairy producers in India

In an archetypal farm-to-fork story, the Uttar Pradesh vegetables are spicing up the Arabic food and cuisine in the faraway Gulf countries.

Boosting the state’s farm value chain, the export of vegetables from landlocked UP to the Arabic world is rising even as the government is now looking to tap the extensive European market as well.

According to the state government, about 160,000 tonnes of vegetables worth Rs 161 crore were exported via air route to the Gulf in 2021-22.
