How it began...

National Cooperative Exports Limited (NCEL) was conceptualized when Shri Amit Shah Ji, Hon'ble Home and Co-operation Minister, took a decision to establish a National level Multi-State Cooperative. The Cooperative is created to function as an umbrella organization for exports by the entire cooperative sector of the country.

NCEL was set up with the approval of the Union Government and registered under the Multi-State Cooperative Society Act, 2002 on the 25th of  January, 2023. It is jointly promoted by some of the leading cooperative societies in the country, namely. Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF) popularly known as AMUL Indian Farmers Fertilizer Cooperative Limited (IFFCO). Krishak Bharati Cooperative Limited (KRIBHCO) and National Agricultural Cooperative Marketing Federation of India Limited (NAFED). Besides, National Co-operative Development Corporation (NCDC), a Statutory Corporation under the Ministry of Co-operation, is one of its promoter members.

As cooperatives hold the key to the rural economic transformation of the nation, particularly in agriculture and related sectors with the promise of growth with equity, all efforts should be made to leverage the strengths of cooperatives and transform them into successful and vibrant business enterprises in order to realize the vision of "Sahakar-se-Samriddhi". The Ministry of Cooperation has taken initiatives to encourage cooperatives to think globally and act locally in order to leverage their comparative advantage in sectors like, - agriculture, horticulture, dairy, poultry, livestock, fisheries, sugar, spices, organic products, fertilizer, handloom, handicraft, textile, tea/coffee, minor forest produce, ayurvedic/herbal medicines, processed food, leather, etc. across the globe.
