Kerala University of Fisheries and Ocean Studies and Foundation for Organic Agriculture and Rural Development have organized a five-day India International Food and Agri-Aqua Expo. The programme is supported by National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development, Kerala State Department of Agriculture, MPEDA, Coconut Development Board and Directorate of Arecanut and Spices Development.

With a call from Kerala’s Minister for Public Works V. K. Ebrahim Kunju, the sixth edition of India International Food and Agri-Aqua Expo got underway to bring back agriculture in the State.

While inaugurating the five-day expo, the Minister said that farmers in the State were a harried lot and that agriculture had not proved lucrative. However, it was possible to bring back agriculture.

He further said that he was in support of providing subsidy for food production so that food security could be ensured.

One of the focus areas of the five-day programme was organic agriculture. India Organic Fair and workshops on organic methods of agriculture will be held over the coming days. A seafood stall is an added attraction at the show. Students from KUFOS are directly involved in the preparation and sale of traditional delicacies. Vice Chancellor of KUFOS B. Madhusoodana Kurup delivered the keynote address at the inauguration of the event.
