Los exportadores guatemaltecos envían mangos a Europa y ponen la vista en el mercado chileno

















Pese a que la inmensa mayoría de los mangos enviados por los exportadores guatemaltecos van a los Estados Unidos, las ocho compañías exportadoras del país intentan ampliar su alcance. La pasada temporada fue la primera vez en que enviaron fruta a España y Alemania y se proponen llegar a más mercados internacionales en el futuro.



"Los Estados Unidos reciben el 90 por ciento de los mangos que exportamos y la Unión Europea recibe el 10 por ciento restante",
apunta Eddy Martínez, de Agexport Guatemala. 




"Hicimos nuestros primeros envíos por aire a España y Alemania este año y, en el futuro, esperamos superar las 15 toneladas de mangos frescos que hemos enviado por aire este año".







Los productores guatemaltecos tienen en torno a 6.000 hectáreas de plantaciones en el país, con más del 83 por ciento de esa superficie dedicada a los mangos Tommy Atkins. Los productores también producen las variedades Autaulfo, Kent y Keitt, pero a una escala mucho menor.







Los ocho exportadores del país han trabajado con el Ministerio de Agricultura de Guatemala y con la Secretaría de Agricultura de Chile para abrir el mercado chileno a la fruta guatemalteca.





 Martínez opina que este es un gran paso, ya que la temporada de Guatemala, que va de marzo a abril, puede completar la producción de Perú, Ecuador y Brasil. 



Por ello, Martínez mira al futuro con optimismo, pese a la naturaleza decepcionante de esta última temporada.


"Tras el año tan malo que hemos tenido en 2015, los productores y los exportadores estamos centrados en mejorar la productividad y en cultivar mangos guatemaltecos de mayor calidad"
, indica Martínez. 



"Si lo conseguimos, entonces podremos continuar siendo tan competitivos en los mercados internacionales como lo hemos sido estos últimos quince años".

Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.

INDIA 2016 : Mango production in state likely to take a hit this year

TNN | May 22, 2016, 12.32 PM IST






Mangaluru: Vagaries of nature is expected to take a toll on the production of King of Fruits - Mango - in Karnataka this year. A combination of failure of pre-monsoon showers at the flowering and growth stage and spike in temperature in mango growing belt of the state is expected to limit the total production of mango to an estimated 12 lakh tonnes in the current season as against 14 lakh tonnes in the last calendar year.



However, the good news for fruit lovers is that this could see price of mangoes across varieties decrease marginally by 2-3%. This is mainly on account of 'import' of the fruit from other mango-growing states in India, said M Kamalakshi Rajanna, chairperson, Karnataka State Mango Development and Marketing Corporation Ltd.




Karnataka is the third largest mango-growing state in India after Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra.
