This month, we’re sharing with you part two Ahmed’s reporting for America’s Test Kitchen where he followed the Pakistani mango trade in the United States. The story first started on SSSS and eventually moved to ATK’s PROOF podcast. Find more info on PROOF here: https://www.americastestkitchen.com/proof.

“In part two of this investigation, reporter Ahmed Ali Akbar explores the underbelly of the secretive mango distribution industry. He uncovers the historical and economic reasons that importing mangoes from Pakistan has been so difficult — from regulation to irradiation. And he finally traces product to supplier.”
