Pakistani Companies Attend First-Ever Al Hamba Festival to Attract Mango Imports from Qatar

The first-ever Al Hamba Festival in Doha celebrates Pakistani mangoes and aims to attract Qatari importers to buy mangoes and other agricultural products from Pakistan.

Pakistan is one of the world’s biggest producers of mangoes but faces challenges in exporting due to weather issues, pests, and fruit flies that affect international agricultural standards.

Organized by the Pakistan Embassy and the Celebrations Organizing Committee of the Private Engineering Office, the festival showcases popular Pakistani mango varieties such as Sidhri, Chaunsa, Safeed Chaunsa, Anwar Ratol, and Duseri at Souq Waqif.

With participation from over 43 companies and 100 outlets, the event seeks to promote cultural exchange through food and encourage importers to order not just mangoes but also rice, fruits, and other products from Pakistan.

Running from Thursday until July 6, the festival provides a rich cultural and culinary experience for families and food lovers. In addition to fresh mangoes, exhibitors display a range of processed foods, dried mangoes, and seasonal fruits like falsa, jamun, and peaches. Local restaurants and caf├ęs also join in, offering a variety of Pakistani dishes to showcase the country’s rich culinary heritage.
