Tribal Cooperative Marketing Development Federation of India (TRIFED) signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Department of Underdeveloped Areas (DUDA) on Monday to assist Nagaland market its indigenous handloom and handicraft products across the country and world.

Announcing this at the ongoing Hornbill Festival at Kisama, TRIFED managing director (MD) Pravir Krishna stressed that exotic and traditional handwoven shawls, food, rajma (beans), turmeric, ginger and artefacts needed to be taken to national and international markets. 

He said the MOU was signed with DUDA to enable TRIFED become Nagaland’s window to the world, adding that the federation under Vandhan Yojana intended to create 100 self help groups (SHG) in the State so that whatever was produced did not remain confined within. 

Regretting that huge quantities of turmeric and ginger were stored and sold at low prices, the MD said this should not be allowed as TRIFED would ensure good prices to local entrepreneurs, farmers and even artisans.

He explained that under Vandhan Yojana 300 individuals from tribal community would be trained to produce value-added products, which TRIFED would brand and market to the world. He exuded confidence that the beautiful products of Nagaland would find a good market across the world. 

Krishna said initial discussions and works had begun in this regard.
