Mann Ki Baat Modi Araku Coffee

In his 111th episode of the ‘Mann Ki Baat’ programme, Prime Minister Narendra Modi lauded the global presence of local Indian products, and mentioned Araku coffee produced in Andhra Pradesh.

“There are so many products from India that are in great demand across the world and when we see a local product from India going global, it is natural to feel proud. One such product is Araku coffee. Araku coffee is grown in large quantities in Alluri Sita Rama Raju district of Andhra Pradesh. It is known for its rich flavour and aroma,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi said while addressing the 111th episode of Mann Ki Baat.

Highlighting the socio-economic impact of Araku coffee, he noted, “About 1.5 lakh tribal families are associated with the cultivation of Araku coffee. Girijan cooperative has played a very important role in taking Araku coffee to new heights. It brought together the farmer brothers and sisters here and encouraged them to cultivate Araku coffee. This has also increased the income of these farmers a lot.”

“I remember, once I got a chance to taste this coffee in Visakhapatnam with Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu Garu. Araku Coffee has received many global awards. Coffee was also popular at the G-20 summit held in Delhi,” PM Modi remarked.

Continuing his appreciation of local products gaining international recognition, Prime Minister Narendra Modi highlighted the snow peas from Jammu and Kashmir.

“The people of Jammu and Kashmir are also not behind in making local products global. What Jammu and Kashmir has achieved last month is an example for the people of the entire country. The first consignment of snow peas was sent to London from Pulwama here,” PM Modi said.

“Some people got the idea that why not bring the exotic vegetables grown in Kashmir on the world map. Then Abdul Rashid Mir of Chakura village was the first to come forward for this. He started growing snow peas by combining the lands of other farmers of the village and soon snow peas started reaching from Kashmir to London,” he added. (ANI)
