Industry - Jhelum


Municipal Committee Jhelum

There are numbers of industry in and around Jhelum City. Major industries include a Tobacco factory, wood, marbel, glass and flour mills. District Jhelum is quite poor in agriculture production. The major crop is wheat, annual average production of which during the period 2005-08 was 94.56 thousand M. Tons. There are already 12 flour mills in district Jhelum. Therefore, establishment of additional flour mills is not advisable. Fruit and vegetables are grown in small quantities which are not sufficient to meet the overall requirement of the district. Therefore, there exists very good potential for cold storage in the district, so that the vegetables/fruit purchased from other district would be preserved for short period to maintain regular supply in the local markets.
