India, Bangladesh can supply shopping bags to the world: Jute Commissioner

Written by Meghalaya Times. Posted in Business

New Delhi, July 13 (IANS): Lack of modernisation and diversification has stunted the growth of India's jute industry and both India and Bangladesh, world leaders in jute production, need to double their output to supply enough shopping bags to the world to meet the growing demand for green products, Jute Commissioner of India Subrata Gupta said.
However, he said, the industry needs more investment and modernisation just to stay afloat.
"There is little interest in development of technology for jute processing. There are only a few manufacturers of jute machinery and they too invest very little in development of new machinery. Most machines in use today in the jute mills in the country are copies of machines of the 1950s and 1960s vintage. There are a few machines of recent designs and even those few have hardly been installed in jute mills," Gupta told IANS in an interview.
