About nuts and dried fruit from Afghanistan
Afghanistan is world known for producing some of the finest nuts and dried fruits. The special climate and dry mountains give them strong taste and flavour. Many nuts and dried fruits come from trees that grow wild.
warfair cooperates with Ziba Foods And International Trade Center to get the products to Denmark. Ziba Foods produces nuts and dried fruits that are nutrient-rich, sustainably grown and socially-responsible.

Warfair and Ziba Foods are working to restore Afghanistan as a world-renowned supplier of nuts and dried fruits.

ITC Impact Sheet: ZIBA Foods from Afghanistan
Afghanistan has suffered from war and conflict for up to 40 years, with hundreds of thousands killed and millions displaced. The fighting has had a devastating effect on Afghan society, with insecurity, widespread poverty and a lack of base social services in large parts of the country.
Of the total population of just over 35 million people, more than a third live in extreme poverty and over six million are dependent on emergency aid.
Afghans are extremely resilient but urgently need trade, jobs and income.
