Quality control will accelerate Pakistan mangoes entering Chinese market, says a report published by Gwadar Pro on Thursday. According to Adnan Hafeez, director of Imperial Ventures (Pvt) Ltd, “Quality control is the keyword of this year’s mango export”. The first shipment of Pakistani mangoes of the present season will arrive in Kunming, China this week. Adnan told Gwadar Pro that this time there are 4 tons of mango, half of which will be sent to Chinese wholesalers and retailers as samples. “We have already got connected with some big supermarkets and e-commerce platforms in China, including Walmart, JD.com and FreshHema. The current issue is that they stressed the outlook of mango rather than its taste. Our mango tastes very good, but its outlook is not advantageous.” Noticing the requirements, Adnan and his team are trying their best to improve the mango’s outlook. “We need to follow the strict processing guidelines from picking to transporting. ” “This year, to guarantee the mango’s outlook and the quality, we are doing everything by ourselves. We need to sort out clean and beautiful mangoes manually. We also rent a licensed mango processing factory for the whole mango season. We’re spending a lot of time, money and manpower on this,” Adnan added. “If the samples get accepted, we can expand our Chinese market and increase the frequency of our regular mango shipments till September.” Last year, Pakistan’s mango export was 150,000 tons, while its export to China was only 50 tons. Adnan aims to double this amount to 100 tons this year. “Right now we have the largest mango export market in Europe, the UK, and the middle east.
