Iran is selling tomatoes to Pakistan at $1.10 per kilogram. The price stands near Rs. 160-170 per kg for Pakistani importers, much higher than the locally produced tomatoes. Due to lack of trade with India the price of tomatoes soared up as shortage increased in the market and the price reached as high as Rs 350 per kg. The increase in price prompted the government to take remedial measures.
Currently, the everyday use commodity is being sold at Rs. 180-210 per kg as compared to the previous Rs. 300 per kg. The local supply is expected to pick up pace early December, giving local traders hope for market stability in days to come.
