Tribal Cooperative Marketing Development Federation of India (TRIFED) was constituted in August 1987 under the Multi-State Cooperative Societies Act, 1984. It currently comes under the aegis of the Tribal Affairs Ministry. It is a national-level cooperative body that works to ensure socio-economic development of tribals in the country by institutionalising the trade of minor forest produce and surplus agricultural produce collected or cultivated by them.
TRIFED’s mandate is to empower the tribal communities by providing them with knowledge, tools and data to market their produce/skills effectively at the national and international markets and creating a brand.
