THE NEXT "STEVE JOBS" HAS YET TO BE DISCOVERED...BUT THE WORLD DOES HAVE A STANDARD BY WHICH TO JUDGE THEM...

While we in the tech world are still celebrating the life of Steve Jobs, I’ve seen numerous articles over the past few days that talk about the things he’s accomplished, the impact that he’s had and where we go from here. I’ve had conversations through Twitter, Google+, over the phone and otherwise wherein everyone from entrepreneurs to analysts and Venture Capital firms have expressed their concern for the technology ecosystem as a whole.

But it occurs to me, as it should to you, that while the passing of Steve is a a tragedy of our generation, technology and entrepreneurialism will continue to move forward. By the very nature of their definitions, these two terms that describe our world are forced to move on. We’ll never forget Steve or his impact, and in fact should be driven forward by those factors.

For mango exporters looking to preserve the delicious flavor of a fresh mango, value added is a logical route that avoids the headaches of the Hot water treatment protocol.


There are many advantages to creating a value added commodity. Not least of which is a constant supply and avoiding the perils that come with a perishable commodity.


By converting a fresh mango to an IQF chunk, Freeze Dried slices or a Dehydrated or Sun Dried product mango exporters can establish a storable commodity and avoid the pressure to sell associated with fresh product.


Recently, IMO has posted on Camposol of Peru's success story with Individually Quick Frozen  (IQF) Chunk mangoes. Camposol consistantly ships mangoes on a year round basis at a higher return to the shipper. In the process, Camposol has cornered the USA market with this value added product.
