Lake salt in Pakistan is available in excellent quality and sufficient quantities. It used to be a problem for manufacturers to extract the salt from the lakes due to the difficult routes to the lakes but now with the advancements and development of the infrastructure in Pakistan, the extraction has become easier.
The lakes are located about 300 km from Karachi and the transportation is done using special desert trucks that work round the clock. Currently, a small quantity of 3,000 tons is extracted on a daily basis making the yearly average production to around 900,000 tons.
Hub-Pak has recently started its own harvesting activity at the Ankerio salt lake. This has led to an addition of 2,000 tons of salt to the 700 tons of salt already being harvested.
