    Food Processing (Banana)

    Bananas are cultivated on a large scale in the district and this makes it possible for associated / similar industries to flourish here. The food processing units produce a variety of items including banana chips, beauty products, toiletries etc. These units provide direct as well as indirect employment to a large number of people. The processing of these industries not only includes growing the fruit, but also the packaging, processing, and shipping of the products directly from the plantation to worldwide markets. Banana Cultivation and processing is a significant economic engine of the district because it is labor-intensive and delivers a relatively quick return on effort and investment.

    Introduction

    Kaushambi district was carved out of Allahabad district on 4th April 1997. The Buddhist Commentarial scriptures give two reasons for the name Kaushambi/Kosambi. The city was founded near the site of the hermitage once occupied by the sage Kusumba (Kusumbha) and second large and stately margosa-trees (Kosammarukkhā) grew in great numbers in and around the city. It has a few excavated sites, including a Pillar of Ashoka with inscriptions in Pali The District Kaushambi is mainly an agricultural district in which the main crops are wheat and rice. Some area is cultivated under pulses like Arhar, Urad and Chana. The famous Allahabad variety of Guava is actually the specialty of Kaushambi. The principal sources of irrigation are canals and tube wells. The city is also known for its Banana cultivation and processing of various banana products.
