Healthy decisions are essential for living a healthy lifestyle. An individual’s top priority is to maintain his health, and when it comes to living a healthy lifestyle, the most important thing to do is to make healthy eating choices. When it comes to eating properly, the most important decision is which cooking oil to use. Everyone is aware of long or short term disorders that fatty and greasy foods cause such as heart attacks, diabetes, indigestion, upset stomachs, constipation and diarrhea. The average Pakistani household consumes about 12 liters of cooking oil per month. Pakistan imports around 2 million tons of edible oil annually. Choosing a high quality cooking oil is extremely important because a low-quality cooking oil will cause gastric problems and also make the body susceptible to multiple coronary and heart diseases. Premium ghee can help you eat comfortably and healthily because it gives your meal a good taste and aroma. In Pakistan, the most commonly used ingredients in villages or urban areas are desi ghee and cooking oil.

In rural and poorest regions of Pakistan, the consumption of desi ghee is still comparatively higher than in urban areas. Pakistan is the fourth largest oil-importing country with edible oil ranking as the 2nd largest import item, contributing around USD 3.1 billion annually to the import bill. Before deciding on cooking oil, do some research on the product and put your family’s health first. After considering all health aspects, our Tashheer research team compiled a list of the top 8 cooking oil brands that are used in almost all cities in Pakistan. These companies supply their premium cooking oil to every grocery store in Pakistan including their registered offices in major cities like Lahore, Karachi, and Islamabad. People are also addicted to tea in Pakistan and it is better to choose best tea brands for everyday use.

Dalda Foods Limited (DFL), one of Pakistan’s leading cooking oils and Banaspati manufacturing and selling companies, was established in July 2004. Dalda was the name of the Dutch company that imported banaspati ghee into the Indian subcontinent in 1937 as a low-cost alternative to desi ghee, or clarified butter made from cow’s milk. On March 30, 2004, Unilever Pakistan accepted a proposal of Rs. 1.33 billion for the sale of its Dalda brand and related edible oils and fats business to the newly formed Dalda Foods (Pvt.) Limited. After owning the Dalda brand, the company started to create global footprints in 2005. Today, this company operates in three food categories: edible oils and fats (brands include Dalda, Planta, Manpasand, and Tullo) and dairy (featuring Dalda CupShup, a liquid tea whitener). Their purpose is to bring healthy and flavorful smiles into people’s lives by providing nutritious and premium foods while upholding ethical standards and contributing to a sustainable society.
