By Ramesh Mathew/Staff Reporter

Several varieties of mangoes from Asian countries have arrived in the local market with the advent of summer.

To make the most of the demand for the fruit, especially among locals and Asian expatriates, hypermarkets and other outlets across the country are expected to launch mango festivals in the coming days.

Some of them are already working on strategies for mango-themed promotions even as more varieties are likely to hit the stands shortly, it has been learnt.

While the yield of the crop in some Asian countries, such as Pakistan, has been reportedly lower than the previous year, exports to the Gulf countries have remained at the same level from places like India, an importer in Qatar has told Gulf Times.

Most varieties of Asian mangoes cost between QR12 and QR15 for a kilo at a Doha hypermarket. There are certain mangoes that are priced at QR18 or above. An official at Safari Mall in Abu Hamour said mo…

Subject: Israeli Juval Aviv, Now A Congressional Security Consultant..

Do you know who Juval Aviv is? 

He was Golda Meir's bodyguard and the Israeli Agent on whom the movie 'Munich' was based.

Golda Meir appointed him to track down and bring to justice the Palestinian terrorists who took the Israeli athletes hostage and killed them during the Munich Olympic Games. 

In a lecture in New York City a few weeks ago, Aviv shared information that EVERY American needs to know, but that our government has not yet shared with us.

A little background: Aviv predicted the London subway bombing on the Bill O'Reilly show on 'Fox News', stating publicly that it would happen within a week. At the time, O'Reilly laughed and mocked him, saying that in a week he wanted Aviv back on the show. Unfortunately, within a week the terrorist attack had occurred.

Juval Aviv also gave intelligence to the Bush administration about 9/11 a mont…

Indian mango exporter finds market in Germany ...

May 15th, 2013

Market opportunity and easily available information has made Germany a natural springboard into Europe, according to one Indian mango exporter.                          

Mahesh Krishnappa of Rapid Import and Exporters said the company has sent its first small consignments to Germany with the hope of making a splash in a promising new market.

“We wanted to understand E.U. regulations when we started the business so we came up with the idea of collaborating with a company in Europe,” the marketer told

“We invested in Germany because it was easy for us to find a collaborating partner so that we would understand the legal obligations in the European Union.”

The company had also considered launching its European business in the Netherlands, where it still hopes to establish relations, but ultimately chose Germany due in part to a relative lack of mango options.

“At least for Germany, our clients did not have customers previously from India supplying mango…
