As a nation, we are constantly seeking innovative ways to boost our economy and improve our agricultural sector. One such opportunity lies in snail farming, a lucrative industry that has been gaining traction globally. With our fertile land, favorable climate, and abundant water resources, Pakistan is ideally suited for snail breeding. Snail farming offers a unique chance for our farmers to diversify their income streams and capitalize on the growing demand for snails in international markets. The global snail collection crisis has created a significant supply gap, and Pakistan can fill this void by adopting modern snail farming techniques. Our country’s agricultural landscape is perfectly suited for snail breeding. The mild winters and rich soil provide an ideal environment for snails to thrive. Moreover, snail farming requires minimal land and water resources, making it an attractive option for small-scale farmers.
