India's first fruit train flagged off

A goods train of the Indian Railways which was fully loaded with 980 tonnes of banana was flagged off from Tadipatri in Andhra’s Anantapur district to the JNPT, Mumbai, for being shipped to Iran.

These bananas will be exported under the brand name ‘Happy Bananas’

The initiative will help save both time and fuel as compared to road transportation, collaboration between companies and local farmers, provide market linkage and ensure higher prices with a regular increase in income year-on-year.
