Bamboo rice, millets, red maize attracting organic foodies

Meghana Shukla, a naturopath and millet advisor, is selling millets like Mordhan, Makra, Kodo, Kangni and Kutki. She explains that millets are still traditionally grown in tribal areas. They are nutritious and believed to be effective for treating cancer, joints paints, digestion and sex-related problems.

Deepak Agrawal, one of the organisers of the expo and organic farming expert cum advisor says that our primary objective is to make people aware so that they include organic food in their diet.

Agriculture expert, Sarita Naveria, says that if we wish to keep ourselves fit, we should say goodbye to items grown with the help of chemical fertilisers.

Earlier, Rajeev Kumar, deputy general manager, State Bank of India, inaugurated the expo. Rameshbhai Rupareliya of Gir Cow Farming Training Camp, Ramnath Suryavanshi, National Level Resource Person and Food Processing Specialist of FSSA were also present.
