Afghanistan signs agreement with UK on export of pomegranate juice

Leading Afghan and British pomegranate juice companies signed a multi-million pound agreement to import Afghan pomegranate juice to the United Kingdom.

The agreement was signed on Wednesday between Pomegreat, UK’s major pomegranate juice company, and Omaid Bahir, a Kabul-based factory producing pomegranate concentrate.

“I am delighted to be making this commitment at this pivotal time for Afghanistan. Pomegranates are ancient fruit with widely-documented health benefits. By placing this deal with Omaid Bahir I hope to contribute in turn to the health of the Afghan economy,” said CEO of Pomegreat, Adam Pritchard.

This comes as delegates from around the world are meeting in London to discuss reducing Afghanistan’s reliance on foreign aid by focusing on two key sectors: agriculture and hydrocarbons.

Some experts view the ancient and delicious pomegranate of Afghanistan as the new alternative to opium.
