After an absence of four decades, the renowned Alangadjaggery is poised to make a comeback in the market.

About AlangadJaggery

Alangadjaggery, once famed for its unique taste, enjoyed historical significance, with mentions in Kerala’s trading history.

  • It was even reputed to have been exported to China in the distant past.
  • AlangadJaggery’s fame was attributed to its distinct taste, with a process that excluded the use of salt. The composition of the fields’ soil imparted a unique flavor to the product.

The AlangadJaggery Resurgence: After a four-decade hiatus, the iconic Alangadjaggery is set to make a triumphant return to the market.

  • The first batch, named after its place of origin, Alangad in Ernakulam, is expected to hit the shelves by the end of January 2024.
  • The revival is part of the 'KrishikkoppamKalamassery' initiative, a concerted effort to bring back traditional crops once cultivated in the region.
  • Farmers actively involved in sugarcane cultivation are being supplied all the machinery and equipment required for jaggery production have been procured by the KVK.
  • The initiative is currently in its initial phase, with sugarcane cultivation taking place on six acres of land at Neerikode, Kongorpilly, and Thiruvallur in Alangadpanchayat.
  • The ErnakulamKrishiVigyan Kendra (KVK), Alangad Cooperative Bank, Alangadgramapanchayat, KrishiBhavan, agriculture department, Atma, and Alangad block panchayat are providing comprehensive support for the cultivation.
