Journal of Food Distribution Research, 2017, vol. 48, issue 1

Abstract: With 29.7 million tons per annum, India produces 20% of world banana production. Despite this success, the country is not ranked as either a major or a minor banana exporting country. The goal of this exploratory research was to evaluate the banana sector in the banana producing areas of Kolkata, West Bengal State of India, in order to identify possible strengths and weaknesses that might impact the complete banana value chain (VC). We found major problems in the complete value chain, including production, transportation, distribution, marketing, and overall quality.
