Pakistan Agricultural Storage and Services Corporation
Pakistan Agricultural Storage & Services Corporation Limited (PASSCO) is leading grain procurement and storage agency at national & International level. We look forward to the next decade with quite confidence and optimism. We will continue to progress and deliver best services in food supply / storage chain management. PASSCO is a major player in grain procurement and storage services in highly competitive arena in Pakistan. We have grown extensively in the last 43 years.
Our Mission is to become one of the most valued Corporations in the country. In this we are guided by the ethical values embedded in our Corporative philosophy. PASSCO played its vital role in the last forty three years since its inception.
Within the ambit of its mission, PASSCO undertakes procurement of Wheat and other agriculture commodities and implements the Government policy of Support Price for wheat, paddy, gram, potato, onion and any other specified agricultural commodity, when called upon.
PASSCO performs the function of storage of wheat and its release to deficit provinces/regions and Armed Forces throughout the year on the direction of Federal Government and maintenance of Strategic and SAARC Reserves as per policy spelled out by Federal Government.
In addition to above, PASSCO is also performing the role of price stabilization by intervention in local market and undertakes imports/exports on the instructions of Federal Government. Construction of modern storage facilities to minimize storage losses is the ultimate goal of PASSCO, in collaboration with Agribusiness Agencies.
PASSCO is serving the farmers at their doorstep since 1974 by curtailing the role of middlemen and I am confident and positive that PASSCO is well prepared to undertake the challenging tasks of serving the growers and ensuring Food Security at National level.
