As many as eleven Afghan traders participated in the Aahar International Food and Hospitaly Show on March 10-14 at the Pragati Maidan in New Delhi, India.

The traders closed deals worth more than USD 3mn.

The Export Promotion Agency of Afghanistan with support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) facilitated the participation of Afghan exporters to Aahar exhibition in Pragati to expand their market access into Indian markets and provide them with practical trainings for better marketing approaches.

The event showcased products like Food, Food Ingredients and Additives, Alcoholic Beverages & Cheese, Food & Beverage Equipments, House-Keeping etc. in the Food & Beverage industry.

About 60 percent of the world’s dried fruit and nuts came from Afghanistan before the 1980s, and the country has been recapturing market share over recent years.
