Afghanistan now the world’s sixth largest exporter of raisins

According to the Export Promotion Agency of Afghanistan (EPAA), raisin exports in Afghanistan have gone up from 8,500 tons to 24,000 tons in the last year.

The decades of war disrupted the export capacity of the country and destroyed much of the raisins.

Before the civil war, Afghanistan was exporting 210,000 tons per year all around the world, according to the EPAA.

However, Afghanistan still remains to be first in terms of raisins’ quality.

Raisin exporters complained about the challenges they still face in the industry mainly in terms of transit and lack of good markets.

“The government needs to help us access bigger markets. We wanted to export raisins to London, but our goods were stopped in Peshawar, Pakistan for 50 days,” said the Head of the Raisin Exporter Union Haji Farid.
