Kota (Rajasthan), Apr 25: Spices Board will organize a Buyer-Seller Meet (BSM) for spices in Kota tomorrow (Wednesday) to facilitate a direct linkage between the spice exporters from across the country and potential spice farmers of the region.
The BSM, to be held at Seth Bhamashah Bhawan, Bhamashah Mandi, Anantpura, will also provide a platform for exploring the possibility of establishing market tie-ups and direct business collaborations between the two ends of the spice sector.
Shri Om Birla, the MP from Kota, will inaugurate the BSM and Shri Heeralal Nagar, the MLA from Sangod constituency, will preside.
Rajasthan, along with Gujarat, contributes more than 80 per cent of total seed spices production in the country. The major spices produced in the state include cumin, coriander, fenugreek, garlic and chilly.
Considering the immense potential for spices in the state, the Board is conducting the third edition of the BSM at Kota, which will witness the participation of more than a 100 progressive farmers and farmers’ groups, besides 70 traders from the Hadoti region comprising districts of Bundi, Baran, Jhalawar and Kota and 20 leading spice exporters from across the country.
During the meet, the farmers/farmers groups will showcase their potential in various spices, especially coriander and garlic.
Spices Board Chairman Dr. A Jayathilak said the need of the hour is to strengthen the supply chain and create efficient market linkages at various levels, for which the Board has been conducting BSMs at strategic locations across the country.
“The BSM at Kota is going to be equally beneficial for sellers and buyers. It will help the farmers/sellers to fetch premium price for their produce while the buyers are going to benefit by procuring the products of exportable quality,” he added.
