Pakistan revokes import ban on pet food

Islamabad, May 29: Pakistan Government has revoked the import ban on certain items including pet food and energy savers.
A notification issued by the Ministry of Commerce on Saturday announced the lifting of restrictions on the import of a few items, reports Express Tribune.
The easing of the ban comes after pet owners, retailers, veterinarians and importers staged protests against the ban on import of pet food, and asked the Chief Justice of Pakistan to take notice of the situation.
They highlighted that using substandard food causes the livestock to fall sick with digestive and other issues.
The Pakistan Government, earlier this month, decided to impose a complete ban on the import of unnecessary and luxury items to deal with the country’s unsettling economic woes.
