Industry is one of the most vital inputs for both economy & social development of the country. While the growth of the industry contributes in a big way in the country’s economy. It also passes a major role in the life of the common & has direct impact on the quality of her life of citizens.

Bangladesh is an agricultural country.80% of population depends on agriculture sector directly or indirectly. Bangladesh agriculture contributes to the national gross domestic product is about 70% with food being the growing need of the mankind, much emphasis has been on commercializing agriculture production .Hence, adequate production & even distribution of has lately become high priority global concern. With the changing agriculture scenario & global competition. There is a need of exporting the available resources minimum level. In Bangladesh agriculture the factors like high productivity efficient water management, improved crops, & marketing are responsible for higher-yield as compare to the other country.

Innovation in production as well as market technologies hold the key to economic success in the rapidly in both domestic & international markets. In recent government & financial institution house playing a productive & dynamic role in development process. Agro processing activities specially in the truest areas fruits & vegetables, fisheries, & dairy products.

Bangladesh Agriculture:
Bangladesh has made a lot of progress in agriculture since independence. It has gone through a green revaluation, while revolution. Today’s, Bangladesh is produce milks, fruits, tea, rice, vegetables, sugar, fish, tobacco etc. Thus Indian agriculture is bounding back. It is scraping, its own success stories. Agro business companies are developing new models to reach out to the foramens & consumers, providing new technologies, The Bangladesh agriculture is rapidly change change particularly mid eighteen on the set of “Green Revelation”. If we organize this analyze this scene in agriculture we can notice that the traditional agriculture which was way of life for our foramens is now becoming business position. While increasing population, rapid urbanize & growing export markets the demand for firm population is increasing & is likely to increase in the future. As indicated above there has been a technological break- through in agriculture in recent years. New non traditional crops, new barites the same. A large number of farm products are being product for exports, like to set up modern commercial strawberry in Bangladesh.

Number of farmers has now taken up this activity. Some progressive farmers should undertake strawberry processing as measure of forward integration. With assured supply of good qualify. Strawberries, quality of products would be very good competitive edge would also go up.

Why Strawberry?
Strawberries are growing in many areas of Bangladesh has became very popular. Strawberry were not grow in large quantities few years break but with gradual increase in demand for table varieties as well as from processing unit, number of farmers have now taken up this activity. Some progressive formers should undertaken strawberry processing as a measure of forward integration with assured supply of good quality. Strawberries, quality of products would be very good and the competitive edge would also go up.

Strawberries have grown wild for millennia in temperature regions throughout the world. They began being cultivated sometime before the Christian era and were highly prized by many ancient Romans. Yet, after the fall of Rome, they seemed to have lost their favor until they reemerged in Europe in the Middle Ages. During this time, they began to be prized again, more so for their medicinal qualities than for their culinary value. Cultivation techniques of the European varieties, which were much smaller than the American varieties, were advanced at this time, although the resulting fruits were not as sweet and fragrant as the strawberries of today, and therefore, they did not readily gain widespread popularity.

It was not until the 18th century, when coincidence and the workings of Nature's mysteries coincided, that strawberries developed into the luscious fruit we know them to be and began to be more widely appreciated. In 1714, a French engineer sent to Chile and Peru to monitor Spanish activities in these countries "discovered" a strawberry native to this region that was much larger than those grown in Europe. He brought many samples back to France, which were subsequently planted. These plants did not originally flourish well until a natural crossbreeding occurred between this species and a neighboring North American strawberry variety that was planted nearby in the field. The result was a hybrid strawberry that was large, juicy and sweet, and one that quickly grew in popularity in Europe.

The strawberry, like many other perishable fruits at this time, remained a luxury item only enjoyed by the wealthy until the mid-19th century. Once railways were built and more rapid means of transportation established, strawberries were able to be shipped longer distances and were able to be enjoyed by more people. The strawberry is now the most popular berry fruit in the world. Currently, the United States, Canada, France, Italy, Japan, Australia and New Zealand are among the largest commercial producers of strawberries.

The strawberry, a fruit that features a fragrantly sweet flavor, is the most popular type of berry fruit in the world. While there are more than 600 varieties of strawberries that differ in flavor, size and texture, one can usually identify a strawberry by its red flesh that has yellow seeds piercing its surface, and the small, regal, green leafy cap and stem that adorn its crown. In addition to strawberries that are cultivated, there are also varieties that grow wild. These are much smaller in size, but feature a more intense flavor

Fruits are available only during 4-5 months every year & they are perishable. But with advent of preservation techniques it is possible to ensure them even during off season. There are many methods like dehydration preparation of pulp & so one. This process is considers of manufacture of strawberry.

Market potential:
Strawberries are likely by many but till 8-10 years back, they were not easily available and hence were very costly. But the modernization of agriculture many crops and fruits are grown at many new location. Strawberry is one such fruits. Strawberry processing is taking roots by many farmers. The manufacturing process is not complex and lf some strawberry they will be profited. Competition in this sector is increasing slowly and new entrant offer quality product at competitive rates.

Manufacturing Process:
The process of manufacturing is standardized and easy to implement. Fully grow and matured strawberries are washing, cleaned grated and then peeled. Subsequently, juice is extracted and filtering to remove seeds. We also can use it for preparing face wash, juice, sweats and some other processing.

Types of strawberry:
All strawberry varieties are one of three types: the June-bearing, the ever bearing or the day-neutral. The difference between the types is the time during the growing season the plants produce fruit. The June-bearing varieties flourish in the spring, peak strawberry season, and produce one crop. Ever bearing plants yield

fruit several times, usually at the beginning and the end of the growing season. The day-neutral varieties promise an ongoing crop throughout the summer months as long as the weather is not too hot

There are 600 verities of strawberry of strawberry is produce all over the world. Now a day in Bangladesh there are three types of strawberry being cultivated. Kinds of Strawberry in Bangladesh: Robe 1 Robe 2 Robe 3 Robe 3 is abatable for cultivating in Bangladesh. Rajshahi University developed this kind of strawberry.

Production Country:
Strawberry is produce all over the world from ancient time. The people of Rome were producing it at the beginning. But now a days most of the country of the world are producing it a little bit. Bangladesh is also producing it. There is a potentiality to produce strawberry.

Nutrition: Strawberries are an excellent source of vitamin C and manganese. They are also a very good source of dietary fiber and iodine. Plus, strawberries are a good source of potassium, foliate, vitamin B2, vitamin B5, vitamin B6, omega-3 fatty acids, magnesium, copper, and vitamin K. Strawberries also contain an array of beneficial phytonutrients, including falconoid, anthocyanidins and ellagic acid. .

In-Depth Nutritional Profile:

In addition to the nutrients highlighted in our ratings chart, an in-depth nutritional profile for Strawberries is also available. This profile includes information on a full array of nutrients, including carbohydrates, sugar, soluble and insoluble fiber, sodium, vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, amino acids and more.
Introduction to Food Rating System Chart

In order to better help you identify foods that feature a high concentration of nutrients for the calories they contain, we created a Food Rating System. This system allows us to highlight the foods that are especially rich in particular nutrients. The following chart shows the nutrients for which this food is either an excellent, very good, or good source (below the chart you will find a table that explains these qualifications). If a nutrient is not listed in the chart, it does not necessarily mean that the food doesn't contain it. It simply means that the nutrient is not provided in a sufficient amount or concentration to meet our rating criteria. (To view this food's in-depth nutritional profile that includes values for dozens of nutrients - not just the ones rated as excellent, very good, or good please use the link below the chart.) To read this chart accurately, you'll need to glance up in the top left corner where you will find the name of the food and the serving size we used to calculate the food's nutrient composition. This serving size will tell you how much of the food you need to eat to obtain the amount of nutrients found in the chart. Now, returning to the chart itself, you can look next to the nutrient name in order to find the nutrient amount it offers, the percent Daily Value (DV%) that this amount represents, the nutrient density that we calculated for this food and nutrient, and the rating we established in our rating system. For most of our nutrient ratings, we adopted the government standards for food labeling that are found in the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's "Reference Values for Nutrition Labeling

Potentiality of Bangladesh: The land and weather is suitable for cultivate strawberry in Bangladesh. The cost of land is also cheep. Financial support by government and NGO is also contributed to develop it. There is a lot of land where formed can not cultivate we can use this land. If we cultivate more than 25000 after and produce about1,30,000 tones of strawberry then we can emptor it in the foreign market and can get profit in a large amount. The unemployment problem of Bangladesh can be solved by cultivate the strawberry

Swot analysis: Strengths:
       The farmer can be benefited by producing strawberry. By exporting strawberry can increase our foreign currency. It helps to reduced unemployment problem. We can reduce our malnutrition problem by producing more strawberry. Demand& price of Strawberry so high in the international market. Our land and weather is very suitable for strawberry cultivation. Financial supported to the government.

    Farmer’s knowledge is very poor for the cultivation of strawberry. Government financed is not sufficient for strawberry. Production cost is very high. It is luxuries product that’s why general customers can not purchase the product.

     The land & weather is very suitable for strawberry cultivation. Customers are purchase repeat because it is very testy. It is very profitable within short time. The demand is very high to the foreign country. We can use low costs labor.

 The quality of strawberry in Bangladesh is not good compared to the others country.  Natural disaster is so more.  Cold storage facilities are not sufficient.  Technical knowledge is very few for strawberry processing.

Industry is one of the most vital inputs for both economy & social development of the country. Besides, we are fulfilling our nutrition demand by strawberry. There have big opportunity for strawberry production. So we can earn huge amount of foreign currency by exporting strawberry. As Strawberry is a new product in our country, so it has some lacking such as no popular brand name, people are not accustomed with such kind of product etc. but we hope we can easily overcome these lacking in our nearest future by providing better quality and creating strong brand loyalty among the customer. We believe that our people will prefer the Strawberry. Hopefully in near future our people will get ride of that we will produce more strawberry.

      Government should be arranged some training. Government should be coordinate by financing other facilities. Raw materials for cultivating strawberry should be available. Management should be change or develop in this sector. Farmers should accept this profitable Sectors Create place in international Market so that our farmers being inspire to produce strawberry.
