ESTABLISHMENT OF FOOD DIVISION:
During the year 2003, a separate Food Division was formed in Ashrafi Herbal Laboratories through which the farming, processing and packing of dates was initiated. In this way, separate sections of natural food products were formed in Ashrafi Herbal Laboratories. Which were responsible for processing and packing of natural products hygienically and supply in the market. Out of the natural products packed in the laboratory are dry fruits comprising Almond, Pistachio, Walnut, Resin, Apricot and Date in addition to fruit pulp and Honey while the process relating to herbal products includes cropping of natural herbs, extraction, preparation of medicines and marketing, etc.
Ashrafi Herbal Laboratories are associated with Tibb for now almost 63 years and reckoned amongst the most reputable and reliable institutions in the country.
HONEY PACKED TO INTERNATIONAL STANDARD:
Ashrafi Herbal Laboratories, besides preparing medicines, have also introduced different varieties of 100% pure and natural honey and its other products fetched from lush green mountains, profound valleys and thick forest of Pakistan, packed hygienically according to international standard. It's for the first time in Pakistan that honey is being marketed in attractive PET bottles with sports cap. Ashrafi's honey and honey-made other products are extremely popular both at home and the overseas market.
PACKING OF DATES ACCORDING TO INTERNATIONAL STANDARD:
Date is an important crop of Sindh and Balochistan. Although, it became an exportable commodity late after the inception of Pakistan, the way it was packed and marketed was extremely deplorable due to which thousands of tons of dates were spoiled resulting in considerable loss of foreign exchange. It was Ashrafi Herbal Laboratories' Food Division which by adopting modern farming and processing system, introduced dates in different beautiful gift packs of international standard, both in Pakistan and other countries of the world. What's more, in order to benefit people from its advantages, other delicious products of dates were also introduced in the market.
Pakistan enjoys a special place in production of dry fruit. Ashrafi Herbal Laboratories created a separate section for collection and packing of dry fruit wherein selected quality of dry fruit like almond, apricot, pistachio, resin, etc obtained from plains and mountainous regions were marketed duly packed according to the international standard.
In addition to dry fruit, quality rice and refined pulses are also packed and marketed from Ashrafi Herbal Laboratories in packets of different sizes.
Pakistan is a precious gift of God to its people. It's blessed with barren desert, lush green plains, deep valleys, snow-clad mountains, meandering rivers and regions witnessing extreme weather conditions. Due to diverse climatic and soil conditions, the region is a natural habitat for a wide variety of fruits, flowers, rare herbs and other invaluable foliage.
Keeping in view the efficacy and therapeutic properties of various herbs grown in Pakistan, the botanists at Ashrafi Herbal Laboratories suggested to establish a separate section specifically for herbs. The same is now engaged day in and day out in studying the healing properties of various herbal compounds.
