NEXT TIME IN SRI LANKA....VISIT MANGO TREE RESTAURANT....

He came from India, he saw and he opened the Mango Tree

When he first came to Colombo in 1992, Viraj Panchal had no idea that he would meet and marry a Sri Lankan or that he would found Mango Tree, one of the city’s most popular restaurants. “I came here for an altogether different purpose,” he says.

A ‘Mumbaikar’ born and bred, Viraj hailed from the heart of Bollywood in India and had already established a career in the garment business there. 

In Sri Lanka, he was hired to help a company set up their buying office and then promoted and put in charge of running their garment factory close to Kandy. 

He would thrive in the business, going on to open the doors to his own factory, this time in Nittambuwa in 1998.



Smitten by Colombo: Viraj hailing from the heart of
Bollywood India cannot imagine living anywhere else.


Though this was the only profession he had known, Viraj was quick to see the complications that lay ahead with the phasing out of the…

A year to year comparison of Brazil imports on a weekly basis to the USA market for the August 01 through November 12 time frame reveals a 41% reduction over last years figures.




The USDA import data reveals that Brazil started shipping two weeks earlier last year (2010) with first arrivals showing up in the first week of August versus the third week of August in 2011.


In 2010 Brazil shipped 5,305,769 (4kg) cartons that arrived at USA ports between August 01 and November 12.


In 2011, 3,136,357 (4kg) cartons have arrived so far (normally a two to three day delay in reporting).


This represents 2,169,412 fewer cartons or 59% of last years totals for the same time frame.




This would infer that the USA market has shrunk by this amount (41%) as East Coast FOBs have remained in the $5.00 - $6.00 average for the entire season inspite of the major reduction in volu…

If Ecuador and Peru were to use yield per hectare and use the score for a soccer match, Ecuador would have outscored Peru 6 to 1 !!! For the ANDEAN MANGO PRODUCERS CHAMPIONSHIP....
