In the horticulture sector the TRTA II programme has had major success in developing and piloting Codes of Practice in the Kinnow and the Mango farms along the entire supply chain from farm to processor. The timing of implementation made it possible to send trial shipments of mango from Karachi to China in August-September 2012. The shipments were successful in meeting all compliance requirements and quality parameters. This has now developed a new market for Pakistani mango.
Three mango consignments were sent to China in collaboration with Australia Pakistan Agriculture Sector Linkages Program (ASLP) and PHDEC. Subsequently 5 buyers from China and Korea have approached the exporters for sustained exports of mangoes to the Far East.
