Bangladeshi mangoes reached Switzerland on July 14 with the export of the first batch of the widely loved fruit

After Switzerland, Bangladesh has exported mangoes to Italy's Milan while other consignments are going to the UK and Austria this week.

State Minister for Foreign Affairs M Shahriar Alam confirmed it in a Facebook post on Monday.

On July 14, Bangladeshi mangoes reached Switzerland -- the export of first package of mangoes to the country.

Popular variety "Amrapali" is now being sold at supermarkets in Switzerland.

It has been possible thanks to an initiative taken by Bangladesh Permanent Mission in Geneva.

In the last few years, the demand for mangoes in Switzerland has increased, according to a study conducted by Bangladesh mission, said the post.

A Bangladeshi living in Geneva for 20 years said that he was very happy to see the label of Bangladeshi mangoes at a shop.

“I actually forgot the taste of Bangladeshi mangoes. Thanks to BD Mission for providing the opportunity to have the old taste again,” he said.

Switzerland, the noted diplomatic hub having a population of 3.5 million can be a promising destination for Bangladeshi mangoes if trade relations are maintained while ensuring export quality of the agro products, including mangoes.

The state minister for foreign affairs made the disclosure through a post on his Facebook account that Bangladesh started exporting mangoes to Switzerland thanks to a private initiative.

The North Bengal Agro Farm Ltd has started exporting mangoes of Rajshahi to Switzerland, he wrote on Facebook.
