Agro National Corporation (AgroNat) has announced its decision to supply agricultural produce to 10 resorts.
AgroNat MD Haroon Rasheed stated they aim to shift resorts’ reliance on imports to local agricultural produce. He added that the company is looking to supply their products to more resorts and interested wholesalers as contracts with local farmers allow them to continuously supply interested buyers.
AgroNat said around 500 local farmers have begun working with them and more than 1,500 farmers have expressed their interest.
AgroNat was established under the government’s plan to market local agricultural produce and increase income for farmers. The company also provides local farmers with technical and financial assistance.
