Innova Agri Bio Park, a third-party gamma irradiation facility at Malur, near Bengaluru, has received the Australian government’s approval to process and export Indian mangoes Down Under.

Mangoes treated at Innova’s facility will now qualify for the phytosanitary and food-standard requirement for entry into Australia, and the first shipment is expected to begin next week, said KS Ravi, Director, Innova Agri Bio Park.

“In the current mango season, Innova Agri Bio Park aims to export nearly 300 tonnes of gamma-irradiated mangoes to Australia from its Malur facility. Besides, our exporters are using our facility to export to Europe and West Asia,” Ravi said.

Innova’s facility has also been approved by the US Department of Agriculture and the Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority in India.
