According to a 2017 news report, Pakistan had become the third largest importer of cooking oil, and the fourth largest market for cooking oil after China, India and United Arab Emirates. So in recent years, many customers from Pakistan came to Doing Company to visit cooking oil making machine and edible oil refinery machine.
We also know something about cooking oil industry in Pakistan from our customer. Pakistan is an agricultural country with a population of 155 million, the seventh most populous country in the world. Domestic production of various cooking oils is around 6.86 MMT per year, which is not sufficient for domes-tic requirements, so substantial amount of foreign exchange is being spent on the import of cooking oils. Therefore customer think it is very suitable to start cooking oil production business in Pakistan.
Cottonseed is the main oil seeds in Pakistan
In Pakistan, the oil seeds have cottonseed, canola, rapeseed and sunflower seed. But the local production of cooking oil in Pakistan is mainly from cottonseed. Although the domestic cotton cropis mainly grown for lint, it contributes over 70% of local cooking oil production as a by-product. In spite of the fact that the size of the domestic cotton crop has shown substantial increase over the last 50 years, the availability of cottonseed oil remains far below the domestic requirement of the growing population.
The total annual production of cottonseed in Pakistan is around 34.16 MMT whereas the figure for production of sunflower, canola and rapeseed are 3.46 MMT, 1.59 MMT and 2.38 MMT, respectively. Whichever oil seeds you want to process, Henan Doing Company can design the most suitable processing technology for you.
