“Fruit and vegetables production should be increased by 20 per cent to
30 per cent to meet the food requirements of the country. Care should
also be taken to reduce the wastage of fruits and vegetables which
amounts to Rs. 44,000 crore a year,” said P. Subbian, Registrar and
Vice-Chancellor in-charge, Tamil Nadu Agricultural University.
He was speaking after inaugurating the ‘Go Vegan’ fest organised by
Big Bazaar at its store at Oppanakara Street. He added that the older
generations followed a healthy diet which included nutrient-rich food
like grams, cereal, seasonal fruits and local vegetables.
The 12-day festival would have over 300 varieties of fruits and
vegetables on display. During the festival, the food court would serve
only vegetarian food. The vegan counters at the food court would serve
food that do not use any animal products including cheese, butter and
milk, said S. Dharmendra, Area Manager, Big Bazaar.
