KARACHI: Pakistani mango is one of the best in taste, but fetches lowest prices in the export market because the quality of fruit deteriorates before it reaches retail counters.
“While there is a great international demand for Pakistani mango, there are complaints about quality of the fruit that reaches retail markets. That’s why price of Pakistani mango in international markets is low,” said Harvest Tradings CEO Ahmad Jawad.
Pakistan is the fourth largest mango producer after India, China and Mexico. Its average annual production of the fruit is 1.7-1.8 million tons, cultivated on an area of 166,000 hectares.

When most of us write about food and agriculture, we include references to the larger world food picture. This is understandable, but it can lead to problems of context and comprehension. We tend to tie our discussions about agriculture to the plight of the world’s teeming hungry poor – but these discussions are often loaded down with a set of underlying assumptions prevalent among citizens of the developed world. We think that the solution to hunger is more food production; and indeed, sometimes it is. But where and how our agricultural technologies are distributed has a greater effect than the technologies themselves, and until we understand what farms look like worldwide, it all too is easy for us to tout the latest breakthrough’s hypothetical ability to feed so many millions of hungry people.
