Pakistan kinnow exports off to a good startPakistan exports kinnow mandarins to countries all around the world. A majority of its production comes from the Sargodha region where the fruits are also processed.
According to Waheed Ahmed, Vice President of FPCCI and patron in Chief of the All Pakistan Fruit & Vegetable Exporter, Importer and Merchant Association, the kinnow export commenced on December 01, 2017 and the export target during the current year has been set at 250,000 tons.
The kinnow sector is however not without its issues. Kinnow exports saw a consistent decline since 2014-15. In that year, 375,000 tons of kinnow was exported. However, last year’s season was only 280,000 tons.
Pakistani exporters face tough competition in Indonesia as other countries also export fruit to Indonesia with very low duties due to the agreements among the ASEAN trading block. According to a dailytimes.com article, the difference this year will be quality. Lastly, Russia will be the recipient of 30–40 percent of the Pakistani fruits.
