The major varieties of chilli being exported are sannam, teja, byadagi, mundu, Kashmiri chilli etc. The details of exports of chillies during the last three years, year-wise and country-wise is enclosed as annexure. This information was given by minister of state for commerce and industry Jyotiraditya Scindia in a written reply to a question raised in Lok Sabha on Monday.

To avoid the export rejection, Spices Board has been implementing pre-shipment mandatory sampling and testing of chilli and chilli products for Sudan dye I, II, III, IV, Aflatoxin and other toxic elements from October 2003 before exports to European Union (EU). Apart from EU, the chilli and chilli products for export to other destinations including USA, South Africa and Japan are also now within the mandatory pre-shipment quality check. As such only consignments of chilli / chilli products which are cleared by Spices Board are allowed to be exported to various international markets. As a consequential effect of the preventive action, 2,253 consignments have been detained by the Spices Board from export during last three years, after testing a total of 77,409 consignment samples for chilli and chilli products.

Spices Board is also imparting training programmes for chilli-growers in different producing states for pursuing Good Agricultural Practice so as to reduce the level of Aflatoxin from various levels of harvesting / processing. Similar training programmes are conducted for traders / exporters also for Good Manufacturing Practices such as proper storage and hygienic transportation to avoid moisture and to reduce the level of Aflatoxin. This is an on ongoing process, which helps the farmers, traders and processors to export consignments without the issue of Aflatoxin.
