Bhubaneswar:16/9/18: Residents wanting to decorate their homes with tribal products from across the country have a new destination after Union tribal affairs minister Jual Oram on Saturday inaugurated the Tribes India outlet of the Tribal Cooperative Marketing Development Federation of India (Trifed) at Janpath.

“Under marketing of tribal handloom and handicraft initiatives, a drive to expand supplier base has been initiated and simultaneously, efforts have been initiated to establish and promote a platform under the brand so that marketing opportunities are created on a sustainable basis,” said Oram. Trifed is in the process of expanding its outlets all over the country and the shop in Bhubaneshwar is the next step in expanding the network, he said.
