He further stated that they want to promote the mangoes as it is their country’s national fruit.

Additionally, a concept known as “Mangoes for a Cause” will be introduced during the festival, in which all the profits for the mangoes purchased at the festival will go to the not-for-profit healthcare facility Pakistan Medical Centre.

Around 2000 visitors are expected to attend the festival, as per Dr Ikram.

Pakistan Mango Festival 2022 is an initiative to introduce and highlight Pakistani mangoes, their variations and their superior quality to visiting ambassadors, dignitaries, consul generals and members of trade missions in UAE.

Over 100 varieties of mangoes are cultivated in Pakistan. During the Pakistan Mango Festival, around 18 companies will feature several popular mango varieties, which are exported worldwide, including Chaunsa, Sindhri, Sunehra, Dusehri, Langra, Laal Baadshaa, Anwar Ratol, Gulab Khaas, Fajri, Neelam and others.

People will also be able to buy mangoes at a competitive price, stated the managing director of Altaf Hussain Trading Co., Mustafa Altaf.

Pakistani mangoes are witnessing huge demand in Dubai in 2022 as exports have been higher than last year because of strong demand despite lessened production of mangoes in Pakistan amid heatwave and climate change, stated Altaf.
