History

 

Started as little as an Organic Food Cabin at a distant village in Hunza, GS Hunza Dry Fruits grew to be a leading Organic Food provider in Gilgit Baltistan. Eventually, thanks to the love of people for Organic Food, we started getting orders from all across Pakistan. To promote our Fruits even further we started showcasing our products at annual Food Festivals and Expos across Pakistan. In May 2015, to fulfill customers’ needs, we opened our Online Shop, making it easy for our valued consumers to shop Organic and all Natural Dry Fruits. GS Hunza Organic Dry Fruits PVT Ltd is now a Company incorporated with SECP.

Success Story

Kelawo is a processed dry fruit product which is made by coating Nuts with Honey and Mulberry Juice. The Nuts generally include Almond Kernel, Walnut Kernel, and Apricot Kernel. Its origin is the Punial area which is a tehsil of Ghizer District. Kelawo has been produced in Punial with traditional indigenous methods for more than 80 years. It was introduced in the market for commercial purposes very late almost 30 years ago when foreigners and tourists visited the area and discovered this special product. As demand for Kelawo increased in the market, the technology of Kelawo production also shifted from Punial to other areas, especially to District Gilgit, where there is a big market of dry fruits.

Our Work

In May the ripe season of mulberry and cherries is started from Gilgit. We start to collect raw material in May, bring the raw material to the processing unit, and put it into the pulping process. A unique and plus point for GB climate is that there are different ripe seasons for a specific fruit starting from low altitude areas (like Gilgit) to high altitude areas (like upper Hunza), so raw material remains available till the end of September. Now we store the pulp in big drums and the production process starts. After production, it is put to the filling process and then to packaging process. The factory supervisor, manager, and labor control the processes.
