Feeding the world while protecting the planet

Los Angeles CA (SPX) Oct 14, 2011


By combining information gathered from crop records and satellite images from around the World, researchers have been able to create new models of agricultural systems and their environmental impacts that are truly global in scope.


The problem is stark: One billion people on earth don't have enough food right now. It's estimated that by 2050 there will be more than nine billion people living on the planet.

Meanwhile, current agricultural practices are amongst the biggest threats to the global environment. This means that if we don't develop more sustainable practices, the planet will become even less able to feed its growing population than it is today.

But now a team of researchers from Canada, the U.S., Sweden and Germany has come up with a plan to double the world's food production while reducing the environmental impacts of agriculture. Their findings were recently published …

The Feinman family, former owners of the popular Chefs Express restaurant, is set to open Mango’s Dockside Bistro, a new eatery in The Esplanade.



The owners hope for a partial opening late next week in the upscale waterfront mall off North Collier Boulevard.



Mango's will be located in the spot once occupied by Guy Harvey’s Island Grill.



Chef’s Express closed its doors at the The Shops of Olde Marco in July and the Feinmans had been searching for a new location.



Annie Feinman said Friday the initial opening will be a “soft” one, designed to serve a limited number of customers rather than the general public.



Feinman said she and her family are now engaged in securing zoning and occupancy permits before they can open.

WOW !!! ...HERE IS AN EXCITING WAY TO ENJOY CEVICHE...

Tropical Ceviche with Shrimp, Scallop, Mango and Pineapple




Published by thefoodaddicts at 11:00 am under Cooking at Home, appetizers


Lately we’ve been preparing a lot of colorful meals that not only play with your taste buds, but also your eyes. This dish is no different! 
We had some extra ingredients lying around and decided to whip up ceviche to snack on. Well, one thing lead to another and we ended up with this gorgeous plate of shrimp, scallop, mango, pineapple, tomatoes, red onion, jalapeño, and cilantro – all bathed in some lime juice, salt, and pepper. It’s fun to get creative with our ingredients, and this turned out to be a really easy ceviche to put together. 
If you don’t have shrimp or scallops, you can also use raw fish. Additionally, lemon juice can be used in place of lime juice.

For those who are not familiar with ceviche (also spelled seviche), it’s a name given to this dish that involves citrus-marinated seafood. 

It’s origins came either from Peru or Ecuador, and nowaday…

MANGO IMPORTER TO FOCUS ON CARBON FOOTPRINT...

The Oppenheimer Group, Vancouver, British Columbia, has enlisted the help of the Vancouver-based company Offsetters to calculate its carbon footprint using the Greenhouse Gas Protocol.


As a result, Oppenheimer offset its greenhouse gas emissions at the 2011 Produce Marketing Association’s Fresh Summit in Atlanta.

“We measured the greenhouse gas emissions associated with travel and accommodations, transportation of our booth, fruit, and materials, exhibit activity and entertainment related to the show,” John Anderson, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Oppenheimer, said in a news release. “We reduced our emissions as much as possible, then offset the difference by contributing to projects that prevent the equivalent amount of emissions from entering the atmosphere.”

Oppenheimer is also partnering with growers and retailers to review areas where energy can be conserved and sustainable measures can …

THE WORLD'S LARGEST FOOD TRADE SHOW...ANUGA IS THE PLACE TO BE FOR MANGO EXPORTERS...

The place to be(From Food News Editorial Staff)

Friday October 14 2011


It is hard to over-emphasise the size and importance of ANUGA. 

Even by the marathon standards of German trade exhibitions, ANUGA is a colossus. More than a dozen halls. Representation by just about every country on the planet. A press and publicity machine that is superbly slick and effective.


But what makes a trade show is not just its organisation. It is the split between the exhibitors and the showgoers. If there was not an effective presence by exhibitors, there would not be anything like the attendance that ANUGA gets. If there was not such a large attendance, exhibitors would scale back their presence. 
ANUGA is a self-perpetuating giant.

It enjoys an advantage, of course, in that it takes place at the start of the northern hemisphere autumn, when the crops are being harvested, processing is in full swing, and large buyers need to conclude their contracts for big bulk items. Belgium is starting to process its ve…

121,980 metric tons of mango were produced last year in Michoacan according to a Mexican Government source.


SIAP Mexicos Information System for Agriculture & Fisheries compile the data.


Michoacan is one of Mexico's top fruit producers, yet mango production has lagged in previous years. This latest data shows a move up from 8th place in 2010 to 4th palce in 2011.


This figure places Michoacan behind Guererro, Chiapas and Nayarit in overal mango production. These fugures include all varieties of mango, some that are not exported.


While Michoacan is one of the largest mango exporting states (Tied with Sinaloa) this is due to the fact that Hot Water treatment facilities are located in the state and fresh mangoes are transported from surrounding states to be processed for export to the USA market in Michoacan.


Mango is produced in 28 municipalities in the state of Michoacan. Gabriel Zamorra was the largest producer wit…

Perú: Senasa firmará convenio con Argentina para facilitar exportación de productos frescos a ese país

13 de Octubre de 2011




El Servicio Nacional de Sanidad Agraria (Senasa) firmará un convenio con el Servicio Nacional de Sanidad y Calidad Agroalimentaria (Senasa) de Argentina para facilitar la exportación de productos frescos peruanos a dicho mercado, informó el ministro de Comercio Exterior y Turismo, José Luis Silva.

“Toda la exportación de productos frescos podría beneficiarse con este tipo de acuerdos y eso significaría hacer que nuestras exportaciones crezcan de manera significativa”, declaró a la agencia Andina.

Precisó que el convenio permitirá que los mecanismos de control de productos frescos del Senasa sean reconocidos por las autoridades sanitarias de Argentina, con lo que se garantizará que ninguna plaga cuarentenaria en Perú pueda ingresar al mercado argentino.

“En la actualidad no existe un convenio bilateral entre Perú y Argentina que permita facilitar la obtención de las l…

EE.UU. renovó el Atpdea para Ecuador hasta el 2013



Las exportaciones de mango serán uno de los primeras beneficiadas del Atpdea, una vez que la temporada de ventas del producto comienza a fines de año.

La ministra coordinadora de la Producción, Nathalie Cely, manifestó que el problema con el Atpdea no era un problema con Ecuador y que precisaban del momento adecuado para las negociaciones.
