Tuesday, September 26, 2023, Pakistan Horticulture Development & Export Company marked a significant milestone by hosting a webinar on the topic “Opportunities in Value-Addition of Grape Products.”
The primary objective of this enlightening session was to empower growers, farmers, and processors with knowledge on the potential of value addition in the grape industry, with a keen focus on reducing post-harvest losses – a crucial aspect for the economic growth of our nation.
Dr. Javed Tareen, an eminent figure and Technical Member of the Chief Minister’s Inspection Team, Government of Balochistan, took center stage to provide a comprehensive presentation. His insights were nothing short of invaluable, covering topics ranging from the nutritional composition of grapes, production hubs within Pakistan, therapeutic properties inherent in grapes, challenges faced in grape cultivation and processing, global perspectives on grape value addition, and the untapped potential for value-added grape products within Pakistan.
What truly made this event exceptional was the overwhelming participation of our esteemed audience – a diverse blend of current and prospective growers, farmers, researchers, entrepreneurs, and academia. Their presence added immense value to this initiative, underscoring the collective commitment to the growth and prosperity of Pakistan’s horticulture sector.
At PHDEC, we are dedicated to driving positive change and fostering innovation within Pakistan’s agriculture landscape. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all participants for their active engagement and unwavering support.
