Iran gives boosts to Pakistani mango exports
This was stated by FPCCI Regional Standing Committee, Chairman Ahmad Jawad while talking to newsmen. He said good volumes were exported to Iran from the Punjab through Taftan and Mir Java boarders of Pak-Iran, and exporters from Multan and other parts of South Punjab sent quality shipments after the issuance of phytosanitaory certificate.
FPCCI Regional Standing Committee, Chairman Ahmad Jawad.
"We had a detailed meeting with Iranian Ambassador and his team last week, and were told that Pakistani horticulture products are in great demand and that barriers could be removed. We also requested that Iranian embassy work with the government so that Pakistani Kinnow and potatoes would be allowed in the upcoming season which will be started from December 1st." said Jawad.
Similarly, in the ongoing season, major volumes have been exported so far to the Middle East and Iran, while EU markets remain slow if we compare with other markets. Pakistan mangos are being sold in Dubai at the price of 28 to 29 dhiram per 8 kg box.
Jawad also appreciated the role of Department of Plant Protection (DPP) and the way they facilitated mango exporters.
However, he admitted that the mango exports were still low, as around 8% of the total production were exported to different parts of the country, which needs to be further enhanced and urged the government to take pragmatic steps to enhance exports of Pakistani mangoes.
“A major hurdle to the expansion of Pakistani mango market is the inability to supply high-quality mangoes in a consistent manner, by meeting demands of supermarket chains." he added.
Jawad also suggested that mango growers and the provincial government should jointly work for further improvement to fix loopholes including poor orchard management and post-harvest issues.
