APEDA increases number of laboratories for testing agri exports


Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA) has added 135 laboratories to the existing 51 recognised laboratories.  With this initiative, APEDA recognition of laboratories has reached 186 across the country. The number of laboratories has increased in states with exporting potential like Maharashtra (35), Gujarat (23), Andhra Pradesh and Telangana (10), Tamil Nadu (23) and Karnataka (17). Laboratory testing requirements are crucial in the agri export supply chain.


For increasing the laboratory network further, APEDA has taken a policy decision for simplification of its recognition of laboratories.  It has been decided that the laboratories which are NABL-accredited will be recognised by APEDA and will be added in the network of its recognised such facilities. This will enable APEDA to continuously expand its recognition network of laboratories across the country and also enable exporters to have easy access to the laboratories for testing of APEDA scheduled products for exports, said a release.
