Mangoes are growing in popularity, but there is still a lot of room for expansion, according to suppliers.



“Mangoes are considered the most popular fruit in the world ... they are increasing through more education and by being more readily available,” said Wade Shiba, managing partner in GM Produce Sales LLC, Hidalgo, Texas.






Ronnie Cohen, vice president of sales for Vision Import Group, River Edge, N.J., sees this position as potential for growth in the U.S. market.



“Mangoes are the largest consumer fruit in the world, just not in this country, so the market share to be had is tremendous,” he said.










Supply


Greg Golden, a partner and sales manager at Amazon Produce Network, Mullica Hill, N.J., said he expects supplies to increase with demand for this year.



“With overall acreage and productivity of mango farms increasing across all our growing regions, I would expect supply to keep up with dema…

Several years ago, Gay felt so strongly about the lack of quality and flavor with water-treated mangoes that the company stopped using the hot water bath treatment altogether and began focusing on shipping mangoes only to Europe and Canada, where the treatment is not required.






However, last year, when the Benebion irradiation facility in Matehuala, Mexico, was certified by U.S. Department of Agriculture inspectors, Gay could again begin shipping mangoes to the U.S.




Arved Deecke, founder of the Benebion facility, said the process is fully overseen by USDA inspectors.

THE COUNTDOWN TO VENEZUELAN "ELECTIONS" ...

Cuba’s Venezuelan Pawn

The Wall Street Journal

April 4, 2013
By Mary Anastasia O’Grady





Venezuela's military government will hold what it refers to as a presidential "election" on April 14, and one of the candidates on the ballot will be Hugo Chávez's handpicked successor, Nicólas Maduro. 



The 50-year-old union leader-cum-politician was named Venezuela's acting president after it was announced on March 5 that Chávez had died. In all likelihood, Mr. Maduro will win the election, using the dubious methods perfected by Chávez and with whatever help Havana feels it necessary to provide. 






Having started out in bus-driver training, Mr. Maduro is being presented to the world as almost an accidental president. But as the Cuban-born writer Carlos Alberto Montaner explained in a column in Miami's El Nuevo Herald last week, Mr. Maduro's rise to power in Venezuela is anything but coincidental. Cuba has long had its eye on Venezuela's oil, and Mr. Maduro seems to have …
