Wheat

Wheat is Pakistan’s staple crop. With an average annual production of about 23 million metric tons, 100% of the wheat is consumed domestically.

In 2000-2001, 2003-2004 and 2010-2011, Pakistan was blessed with bumper wheat crops and the government allowed export of the surplus quantity.

Our quantum of exports under these three export programs was:

  • 475,000 mtons in 2000-2001
  • 100,000 mtons in 2003-2004
  • 220,000 mtons in 2010-2011

Pakistan wheat has both a high protein as well as gluten content and is popular in the international market despite irregular supplies.

We have exported both FAQ grade as well as Grade A (cleaned) wheat.  Our in-house wheat cleaning set-up, imported from India, is operable at a rated capacity of 2,500 mtons per day.
