Our exporters failed to meet the new stringent guidelines on health, hygiene and durability issued by European market regulators. EU does not compromise on these issues.
According to the new guidelines, the mangoes need to have various post harvest treatments in the certified pack house, which local exporters feel is too expensive and cuts into the profit.
Exporters should look for new markets like Gulf Emirates, South East Asian countries etc..

Pest issue might be there but there is also a political angle to it.
After many years of diplomatic efforts Pakistan has succeeded in getting a favourable nod from Europe.
Their textiles and exports such as mangoes, etc are beginning to look up.
And this can be achieved only by cutting off India from the scene

Why would WTO press EU to buy pest infested Alphonso mangoes from India ... and serve to their people?!! Are there some Indians in WTO whom you expect to lobby for Indian mangoes, which are declared un-acceptable by EU for valid reasons!?
