Farmhouse Export (Pvt.) Ltd was founded in 2011 with a focus on making use of advanced post-harvest techniques to export high-value fruits and vegetables grown in Pakistan to meet the international market standards of quality and packaging.
Due to the poor traditional methods of harvesting, packaging and transportation being practiced in Pakistan, majority of the produce being exported from Pakistan is mostly damaged before it reaches the end consumer. Farmhouse identified the need of implementing the modern methods in order to overcome this challenge.
Within two years of its inception, Farmhouse Export (Pvt.) Ltd was the first Pakistani Company to export mangoes to USA commercially. Since then, the Company has been the largest exporter of Mangoes to USA and has made Pakistani produce accessible to retailers of Middle East, Korea and Canada.
Our cutomer-focused approach and competence, has helped us in attracting international retailers within a short span of time. We strive hard to meet our customer’s expectations about service, product quality and effective procurement.
