GS Hunza Dry Fruits
— Gilgit Baltistan’s largest Dried Fruits & Nuts Supplier
Started as little as an Organic Food Cabin at a distant village in Hunza, GS Hunza Dry Fruits grew up to be a leading Organic Food provider in Gilgit Baltistan. Eventually, thanks to the love of people for All-natural and Organic Food, we started getting orders from all across Pakistan.
To promote our Dried Fruits and Nuts even further we started showcasing our products at annual food festivals and exhibitions 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.
Hunza Candy -Kelawo is a processed dry fruit product that is made by coating Nuts with Honey and Mulberry Juice. The Nuts generally include Almond Kernel, Walnut, and Apricot Kernel. Its origin is the Punial area which is a valley of Ghizer District. Kelowo 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 Gilgit region, where there is a big market of dried fruits and nuts.
In May the ripe season of mulberry and cherries is started in Gilgit Baltistan. We start to collect raw material in the second week of May, bring the raw material to the processing unit, and put it into the pulping process. A unique and plus point for Gilgit Baltistan’s 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 the packaging process. The factory supervisor, manager, and labor control the processes.
