Pakistan may export 120,000 to 125,000 metric tons of potato to Russia as the demand for potato in Russia is increasing, said Harvest Tradings CEO Ahmad Jawad.
Jawad further said that to fulfil Russia’s terms of importing potatoes from Pakistan, a first-ever auto mated state of art potato cleaning plant was established in Karachi. The locally assembled plant was set up at a cost of about Rs5 million ($58,823).
It would be utilised for value addition in potato and making them acceptable in the international market, Jawad said. It would not only do sand washing but would also help in grading process, he added.
