APEM IN DENIAL ??? : Peru expects good mango production

After a 2014-2015 mango campaign with unfavourable weather conditions, a good production is expected for the 2015-2016 season.

Mostly as a result of good weather conditions at the flowering stage and the lack of rainfall in the final stages of the harvest, a record 162,900 tonnes were exported in the 2013-2014 campaign (December to March). 

Of these, 136,400 tonnes (83.7%) were sold fresh, 19,000 tonnes (11.7%) were frozen, 2,400 (1.5%) were used for preserves, 2,500 tonnes (1.5 %) went to juice production and 2,600 tonnes (1.6%) were dehydrated.

The 2014-2015 campaign, by contrast, had unfavourable weather conditions for the production, which dropped to 130,000 tonnes, of which 104,000 tonnes (80%) were sold fresh, 18,000 tonnes (14%) were frozen and the rest was used for juice or dehydrated.

"What we expect in the 2015-2016 campaign is to have a good production," 
said Juan Carlos Rivera, of the Peruvian Association of Mango Producers and Exporters.
