MUMBAI, Feb 7 (Reuters) - India’s buffalo meat exports during April-December rose 7 percent from a year earlier to 1.07 tonnes due to good demand from Vietnam and Malaysia, a government body said on Wednesday.
The South Asian country’s non basmati rice exports during the period jumped 39.5 percent from a year ago to 6.34 million tonnes as Bangladesh and Benin raised purchases, the Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority said in a statement.
