EPB
Different varieties of Pakistani mangoes displayed at London's major stores for spot sale by EPB have proved a great success in the current season.

This indicates that a brand culture is being developed in Pakistan. Some rice millers and exporters in collaboration with foreign investors have started exporting rice under the brand names from Pakistan.
