HBL & JSK Feeds Ltd collaborate on agriculture reform interventions for Maize production in Pakistan

February 04, 2020

Habib Bank Limited (HBL) and JSK Feeds Ltd. are collaborating on agriculture reform interventions for Maize production in Pakistan. A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed at a ceremony held on 23 January 2020 in Islamabad, and was attended by senior members of both organizations.

Through this partnership, HBL will ensure that farmers get easy access to finance and provide technological and agricultural input that will lead to higher yields. HBL will connect farmers to a bulk buyer of their crop produce and provide maize farmers access to finance, who would ensure production of maize at par with the highest quality standards of JSK Feeds. This maize will be procured by JSK Feeds to manufacture poultry and animal feed.

HBL will also assist farmers in improving their per-acre yield, through Agronomical Advisory, Modern Mechanization and High Quality Inputs, and reduce the chances of spoilage of the harvested crop. This will in turn increase the farmers’ revenue.

At the event, Mr. Jahangir Saifullah Khan, CEO- JSK Feeds said, “We at JSK Feeds not only provide quality feed to our customers but are also determined to help alleviate poverty.***
