Pakistan: Kinnow exports to possibly surpass yearly target
After Indonesia and Russia lifted the quota imposed on kinnow from Pakistan, traders told Arab News that they hope this year they would surpass their yearly target.
Dr. Amanullah Malik, the director of the Institute of Horticultural Sciences, claims Pakistan is number 13 on the list of top citrus-producing countries. His nation produces, on average, some 2.4 million tons of citrus fruits of which kinnow make up a massive 70 to 80 percent, or 1.7 to 1.9 million tons. Punjab produces over 60 percent citrus, 98 percent of which comes from Sargodha, where the processing industry is located.
By February 3, 2018, Pakistan had exported 142,813 tons of Kinnow to 27 countries, as compared to 136,719 tons exported during the same period of the last fiscal year. Pakistan’s exports to Russia have increased to 54,395 tons as compared to 50,157 tons exported during the same period last year, while exports to Indonesia jumped to 24,167 tons from 13,202 tons.
Alas, according to the Trade Development Authority of Pakistan, approximately 40 percent of the produce is wasted during pre- and post-harvest stages. Mismanagement of diseases, unfavourable weather conditions, delays in harvesting, absence of proper roads and cold storage facilities, glut formation in the market and similar factors are responsible for these losses.
