Cabinet meeting held under Chief Minister Jam Kamal chairmanship & approved Panjgoor Date processing plant which would be operational through Public Private Partnership & its being constructed with the joint venture with Pakistan Army.
Panjgur produce a good quantity of Quality dates including Mozati dates annually but because of lack of facilities the farmers suffer losses in the hands of big dealers.
Most people love to eat Iranian dates but only a few people would know that dates from Panjgur, Balochistan are no way less tasty than the Iranian one. Especially, the ‘Mozati’ dates are delicious and are in high demand abroad.
These dates are not cultivated anywhere else in Pakistan except Panjgur because it needs special climate i.e temperature and humidity to grow and bear fruit.
