Pakistan is a growing market for imported food products since the retail sector is growing. Rising incomes, urbanization and an extremely young populace are combining to shift traditional consumption patterns away from bulk and raw foods towards packaged and processed foods, including ready-to-eat meals and frozen foods. Pakistan has become one of the top 20 markets for U.S. food and beverages products, and the United States is the second leading agricultural supplier in the world. Total U.S. exports of agricultural products to Pakistan are forecast to exceed $1.5 billion during calendar year 2018. The top U.S. agricultural exports are soybeans, cotton, tree nuts, pulses, powdered milk, corn seeds, and wood products. This report provides U.S. food and agriculture exporters with background information and suggestions for entering the Pakistan market.
