Mizoram to export ‘bird’s eye chilli’ to US

Mizoram would soon export ‘bird’s eye chilli’ of the state to the United States for the first time, the assembly was informed on Monday.

Replying to a supplementary question of opposition Zoram People’s Movement leader Lalduhoma, Agriculture Minister C Lalrinsanga said that 7.5 metric tons of organic bird’s eye chilli would be sent to the US soon after the budget session of the assembly, which will conclude on Tuesday.

Lalrinsanga said that the government has obtained geographical identification (GI) tag for bird’s eye chilli or ‘Mizo chilli’.

The chilli to be exported has passed an organic confirmation test in Bengaluru last week, he said.

In reply to another question, the minister said the state government is making efforts to improve ‘jhum’ or shifting cultivation.
