Millet mela in city from April 28

The state government is organising ‘Organics and Millets 2017,’ a three-day national trade fair from April 28 at Palace Grounds in Bengaluru with an aim of promoting organic food and millets.

Agriculture Minister Krishna Byre Gowda told reporters on Monday that the fair will be a forum for organic farmers and companies selling organic food products to interact with one another and market their products. Retailers including Big Bazaar, Reliance, Metro, ITC and SPAR Hypermarket will take part in the fair, he added.

The government has created 14 organic farmers’ federations to encourage farmers to market their produce. These federations will hold direct talks with the representatives of various retail companies to promote their business. Currently, organic farming is carried out in about 1.85 lakh hectares in the state.
