CAMBODIA : Ministry Promotes Mango Exports to South Korea

















Khmer Times/Sok Chan 

Tuesday, 08 December 2015
















The Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries yesterday signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with South Korea’s Animal and Plant Quarantine Agency to develop a plan to export Cambodian mangos to Korea.




Hean Vanhorn, deputy director general of the ministry, said the agreement will open the gates for Cambodian exports to South Korea, as the government is seeking a market for the private sector and for farmers. 










He said that now the government is calling for all relevant companies to be ready to supply their mangos to buyers.















Mr. Vanhorn added that South Korea currently can order an unlimited amount of mangos from Cambodia but under the agreement suppliers will improve processing facilities and employ a steaming mechanism to prevent insects before exporting. 



“The demand from Korea is to keep the mango hygienic and healthy without insects, and this is the biggest obstacle that we face,”  he said. 



“Mango farm owners must understand this issue.” 





Mr. Vanhorn added that currently Cambodia is seeking local and international investors for equipment which can cost between $1 and $2 million.




On the top of that, the government will ask the mango association to sign a contract with the equipment owners to ensure that these processers have business. 



Mr. Vanhorn added that the government would manage and check on the processing facilities to make sure they meet international standards. 









Cambodia has about 60,000 hectares of mango plantation across the country as of this year.








The country exported around 30 tons to Thailand in 2014, while no such export numbers for Vietnam exist, according to the Ministry of Agriculture.
