Kerala with its indigenous shades of biodiversity has always been a food basket of global interest. The pioneering and persistent efforts of the Department of Industries and Commerce have been instrumental in bridging the local varieties of taste to an international populace. The Department, by promoting the HACCP certification, makes its concerns of food safety, health and hygiene mandatory for the wellbeing of the sector. The pulse of the land gets carried over through the diversity of Kerala’s food products of cashews, seafood and spices. Coconut, cocoa, tea, banana and pineapple add to the lore the richness of our taste buds.
