Pakistan: Cold storage owners fear fruit and vegetable shortages due to changing energy tariffs

A fruit and vegetable crisis may be coming after the government of Pakistan decided to charge commercial tariffs for the industrial energy connections of cold storages. The concern about the crisis was raised at a meeting of the All Pakistan Cold Storage Association (APCSA).
