MPEDA

Kochi:  A wide variety of ready-to-eat fishery products will now be available at your doorstep with the Marine Products Export Development Authority (MPEDA) launching Fish Nutri Cart, a mobile kiosk that would sell exclusively delectable fish-based dishes to tickle your taste buds.

Nutri Cart has been developed by the Network for Fish Quality Management & Sustainable Fishing (NETFISH), the extension arm of MPEDA.  It is aimed at familiarising quality seafood delicacies among general public along with facilitating women empowerment.

This is the first-ever mobile kiosk which is exclusive for seafood in Kerala. The mouth-watering products include fish cutlet, fish ball, fish finger, fish samosa, fish biryani and prawn biryani, besides dishes made out of squid, crab and other indigenous fish varieties.

The mobile kiosk has been developed to empower women by providing them a means for improving their livelihood. It is run by Amrutha Activity Group, a self-help group of women under Society for Assistance to Fisherwomen (SAF). Initially the products will be available at all major tourism spots in Kochi.

K S Srinivas, Chairman, MPEDA unveiled the cart at a function held at the Authority’s head office in Kochi the other day.
