Multan—The Multan Mango Grower Association expressed concern over “tough export procedures and formalities” which hurdled the export of mangoes to the US and demanded higher authorities ease the process which would help obtaining US $ 30 million orders.
Multan Mango Grower Association President Maj (R) Tariq told media that US had allowed mango exports after 64 years and USAID was working to promote the mango industry in Pakistan.
He said they had exported three consignments to the US last year by PIA flights from Lahore. He said that the United Stat Development for Agriculture (USDA) had allowed Pakistan to send mangoes to Schicago only but PIA suspended the Lahore-Schicago flight which created hurdles in mango exports.
“The USDA also permitted Pakistan to send mangoes via Dubai to Schicago. Emirates and Ittehad flights fly through Dubai but the airlines were reluctant to carry perishable goods like mangoes, fruit and vegetables to the US,” he added.
“Mango growers are facing problems due to the recommended route. Flights to Schicago are available on other routes but USDA has banned other routes for the export of the fruit. Exports worth $3.5 from the Latifabad mango form have been suspended over the issue,” he added.
