Irradiated mangoes treated at the BENEBION facility in Matehuala, Mexico are making inroads in the USA market.




Over 20 loads with approximately 80,000 (4kg) cartons of mangoes have been shipped so far this season.




This number is over 5 times the amount of irradiated mangoes imported into the USA by India and Pakistan combined last season.




Irradiated mangoes are crossing at all major USA entry points from Mexico, and there are now four export operations in Mexico willing to take the "risk" with the unconventional process.




Consumer acceptance of the product continues to grow as flavor and the ability to tree-ripen product is making a difference in the marketplace.




One importer reported that they had received so far 11 loads of Tommy, and 2 loads Ataulfo.



Arved Deecke of BENEBION added that;
"At this point we are going on 20 loads. We would have lik…

WHOLE FOODS SUPPORTS HAITIAN MANGOES ...

Hurry! Whole Trade® Mangoes from Haiti are Here by , May 4th, 2012 | Permalink | Email this We’re excited to announce that Whole Trade® Francique mangoes are in season and in stores! Only available for a short time each year, Francique mangoes are unique to Haiti and are deliciously plump and juicy. When ripe, they’re soft with an orange or gold freckled skin and they have a smooth, rich flesh with a distinctly tropical flavor. Whole Foods Market® is the sole buyer of organic and Fair Trade Certified mangoes from Haitian growers, sometimes buying from a family with just one tree. The Whole Trade Guarantee ensures growers receive equitable pay — a key point since this mango crop is a major source of income for many of these families. Our partners at Perry Exports have helped Haitian mango farmers organize into cooperatives so the farmers can sell their fruit more directly. Through these groups, we are able to make fixed price and minimum volume commitments before the season,…

SEGUN FRESHPLAZAS: ..."Brasil: Consumidores prefieren los mangos Kent, Kitt y Palmer "...

El mercado de mangos sin fibra en el mercado internacional está creciendo, afirma André Briso, Gerente de Agropar, empresa brasileña que brinda asesoría a exportadores e importadores de productos agrícolas.


“Las personas están cambiando sus preferencias a la hora de consumir banano y están cambiando la variedad de Tommy Atkins por el mayor consumo de las variedades Kent, Kitt o Palmer. Por ésta razón, le aconsejamos a nuestros clientes que pasen su producción a éstas variedades que tienen un mejor panorama”.


Otro aspecto importante es que el mercado local en Brasil está potencializándose mucho más que otros países. “En algunos meses del año es imposible exportar debido a los precios tan altos que se establecen en Brasil” Afirma Briso.


Debido a la gran demanda de mangos en algunos meses del año, Agropar está viendo la posibilidad de importar mangos al Brasil en algunos meses del año. “Esta importación sería fácil de hacer debido que las frutas se enviarían a compradores de nuestros clie…
