NEW DELHI: National Agricultural Cooperative Marketing Federation of India held a meet with onion importers to help fast clearance of imported stock today in Mumbai. India is expecting arrivals of around 600 tonne of imported onion at Mumbai within the next week, which will further increase supply at a time when its prices are going up.

The purpose of the meeting was to understand and resolve issues relating to clearance of imported stock of onion arriving at Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust, Mumbai, with regards to phyto-sanitary and food security issues.

Chaired by NAFED managing director Sanjeev Chopra, the meeting was attended by leading onion exporters and importers and senior officials of Food Safety and Standards Authority of India. The meeting covered exhaustively all ground problems being faced by importers and majority of the issues were resolved to the satisfaction of all the stake holders, read a media statement issued by the ministry of agriculture. It is expected that there would be a higher production of onion in the kharif season across the country which will ease the pressure on onion prices, it said.
