Prime Minister Narendra Modi has appreciated the ‘delicious’ Ladakhi apple as first consignment was flagged off.

“If you get the opportunity, do taste the organic apples from Ladakh. They are delicious!” PM Modi tweeted.

The Chairman/CEC, LAHDC Leh, Tashi Gyalson, flagged off the first consignment of organic Ladakhi Apples from Leh.

CEC Tashi Gyalson stated that this initiative has been successful only because of the collective effort from the local entrepreneurs with the support from local farmers especially from the Nubra region; the concerned Councillor of Tiger and the local administration.

He added that there were fewer markets for local agro-products of Ladakh in the previous years but now, such initiatives will definitely pave ways for the farmers and entrepreneurs to explore more opportunities and promote organic products at both national and international markets.

These organic Ladakhi Apples will be shipped to New Delhi, Hyderabad, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka
