Popular News

Three chilli-laden trucks arrived in Bangladesh by Hilli land port from India on Saturday.

After a two-month stoppage of imports from the country, the supply of raw chilli is low now. Green chilli is being imported due to increased price in the open market in the country.

The chilli is being sold at Tk 90 per kg. Wholesalers have started to come to the land port to buy chillies based on the news of green chilli import from India.

Sources said the cultivation  of raw chilli was damaged due to flood. As a result, there is crisis of green chillies in the market.

“Due to reasonable price, we import green chillies from India every year,” Green chilli  importer and also president of the importer group, Harun-Ur-Rashid said.

If production increases, the price of chillies may reduce, he said.
