Supply Chain Management – Horizon & Challenges of Pakistan Fruit IndustrySeminar on supply chain-Horizon & challenges of Pakistan fruit Industry

To conduct a successful Seminar on “Supply Chain Management- Horizon & Challenges of Pakistan Fruit Industry”.
Introduction to seminar:
Fruit Industry, like any other industry in Pakistan, is suffering because there is no proper storage, processing, lack of logistical support and low yield of fruits. People have no knowledge about new, advanced marketing techniques, post harvest managements and supply chain management practices. The consequence of all this is that Pakistan export potential of its vegetables and fruits is limited and this industry is not growing with pace that it should be. There is a huge demand of Pakistani fruits and vegetables in international market. Despite of this fact Pakistan only exports 10 to 15% of its total productivity of fruits. There are some countries which export almost 50% of their fruit yield in international market. All these resulted in losses in economic terms and our horticulture sector contributes 12% of Pakistan’s Agricultural yield. Therefore The main purpose of organizing this seminar is to bring the luminaries from Industry and Academia under one roof to deliberate the supply chain issues & challenges faced by Agribusiness organizations to deliver quality products and services that meet customer expectations. This Supply Chain Management seminar aims to explore challenges faced by supply chain professionals of Pakistan fruit history and difficulties faced in supply chain management practices.
