ebmEBM recently participated in the Gulfood Exhibition held in Dubai and is by far the most robust Pakistani company representing the country preeminently at all fronts.

Gulfood Exhibition held at the Dubai World Trade Center attracted exhibitors from across all continents and housed over 90,000 buyers where key trends and topics driving the industry were discussed among industry leaders. EBM as a result of its leadership role surfaced as the first Pakistani company to make its mark on key fronts thus enabling a strong recall and facilitating the company to be highlighted at the global arena. Meanwhile, the exhibition served as a platform to support EBM’s quest for expansion at the international level given its already firm establishment and fame at local grounds.

The company has already enhanced its operational capability to meet demand beyond local consumption, thereby exporting products to more than 25 countries around the world including USA, Europe, and GCC region.

“We have brought EBM at par with international quality standards and intend on making it a globally recognized brand that takes pride in being the largest exporter of biscuits from Pakistan as we holistically envision a brand name that translates into quality, trust, and nourishment for our consumers around the world,” said Dr. Zeelaf Munir, Managing Director & CEO, EBM.

EBM was the only Pakistani company that was present on most sought after locations at the Gulfood Exhibition and hence a means of promoting the Pakistani heritage and origin. The overall response that EBM received from potential buyers was phenomenal. EBM’s commitment to go global while remaining true to its roots is being served by keeping abreast of global trends needed to satiate the international consumer needs. 

English Biscuit Manufacturers (Private) Limited, the makers of Peek Freans biscuits, was established in 1967 as the first manufacturer of wholesome, hygienic packaged biscuits in Pakistan. For over 48 years, EBM has been a symbol of trust and confidence for consumers, making it the leading biscuit manufacturer of Pakistan.

BIEK Results: More women eligible to apply to medical colleges this year

The pre-medical college results announced on Monday by the Board of Intermediate Education, Karachi (BIEK), reasserted the alarming trend of growing gender disparity in the healthcare professions. This year, only 1,603 male students will be eligible to apply to medical colleges as compared to 9,203 females this year.

According to the results announced by the education board’s examinations controller, Imran Khan Chishti, a total of 19,902 students sat for the pre-medical exams, of which nearly 75% were girls. Those who managed to pass the exams were 10,833, or 54%. However, this percentage was skewed in favour of the girls since 58% of them passed the exams as compared to merely 40% of the boys. Nearly seven per cent of all students got through with A-1 grades, 16% with As, 15% with Bs, 12% with Cs and four per cent with D grades.

BIEK chairperson Anwar Ahmed Zai, while talking to The Express Tribune, expressed his concerns over the increasing ratio of girls getting into pre-medical education as compared to boys.  “This gender disparity persists even when these students join healthcare facilities after studying medicine from universities,” said Prof Ahmed Zai. “The situation will pose serious issues for the country’s healthcare system in the next few years.”

Meanwhile, the statistics issued by the Pakistan Medical Association corroborate the concerns posed by Prof Ahmed Zai. Around three quarters of the female students of medicine abandon the field right after graduating or after marriage.
