INVESTMENT SCAM ??? : Organic Mango Farm In Panama With High Returns


There is no mention anywhere in this article of a Packing Facility that would need to include a USDA APPROVED Hot Water Facility or Irradiation Plant in order to export to the USA. This runs into the hundreds of thousands of dollars.


The International Mango Organization does not endorse nor are we in any way affiliated with this promotion.

This has been published as part of our ongoing policy to share ALL news from the Mango World.

The price per hectare seems rather high and we recommend that one do considerable research before making any investment.

The Government of Panama does grant residency to foreign investors and this may be incorporated in this offer.

Organic Mango Farm In Panama With High Returns

How To Earn 17% Per Year From This Exploding Global Trend (Hint: Go Organic)

The world population continues to grow, helping to fuel a growing demand for food. Additionally, more and more people are paying closer attention to what they’re eating and to where and how it was grown.

We all know that processed foods are bad for us. However, even some fresh foods aren’t exactly good for us. Preservatives are used on fresh fruits to extend their shelf lives and chemical fertilizers and pest controls are used in the production of many food products that we traditionally think of as healthy.

Growing awareness of these realities is motivating many to prefer organic products, especially organic fruits and vegetables.

According to the Organic Trade Association, consumer demand for organic products has increased by a double-digit percentage every year since the 1990s, expanding from US$3.6 billion in sales in 1997 to more than US$39 billion in 2014. And the demand continues to grow; 51% of families are buying more organic products than a year ago. A recent Consumer Reports survey shows that 84% of people buy organic food sometimes and 45% purchase organic at least once a month.

This trend is motivating more stores to enter the organic market, with even Costco and Sam’s Club incorporating organic food sections.

Interestingly, just 1% of productive land in the United States carries organic certification. This means that most of the organic produce sold in the United States is imported.

 As it takes at least three years to convert land from “modern” farming methods to organic for certification, the United States is expected to be forced to continue importing the majority of its organic produce for some time, especially considering the pace at which demand is growing.

And a fast-growing demand for organic isn’t limited to the United States. This is a global trend.

An investment in agriculture can provide a decent yield. An investment in organic agriculture has the potential to provide an excellent return, thanks to the premium prices organic produce can command.

 Historically, the challenge has been to find opportunities for the individual investor. Starting about three years ago, I began working with colleague James Archer in a focused way to identify any agricultural opportunities, especially any organic agricultural opportunities that make sense for us small investors.

The first such opportunity James and I found was a mango plantation in Panama that I’ve been telling you about since February 2014. 

This is a certified organic plantation that has been developed on land that had not previously been used for any agricultural production… meaning it had no history of chemical fertilizers or pesticides. The developers were able to gain organic certification from the start.

Having the organic certification already in hand helped to attract the attention of wholesale produce buyers from the United States, who, for the reasons I’ve explained, are aggressively seeking new sources** of organic product in an effort to keep up with the exploding demand from grocery store clients from Whole Foods to now Costco and Sam’s Club and others.


There is no mention anywhere in this article of a Packing Facility that would need to include a USDA APPROVED Hot Water Facility or Irradiation Plant in order to export to the USA. This runs into the hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Today, nearly two years later, interest from U.S. wholesale buyers is bigger than ever and has pushed the developers to plan an extension of the mango plantation that they have been busy implementing. 

They launched this second mango plantation late last year and, at my urging, kept the price for investment the same as for the first plantation—US$36,500 per hectare. They committed to holding the price at this level through January. However, at the end of this month, the price will go up to US$38,000 per hectare.

(Please read IMO disclaimer above)

You have a couple of weeks to act before the cost increases.

With projected annualized returns in the 17% range, organic farming offers an excellent return at today’s prices. As demand for organic products continues to outstrip supply, prices for organic products are expected to increase faster than for food in general. That could mean even better returns than are currently being projected; however, even stable product prices make this opportunity worth considering.

P.S. To answer a question I’m asked often, yes, I’ve invested myself. I purchased two hectares of mangos last year and am considering buying more.

While "Flavor" is very subjective, and each country that grows mangoes is very nationalistic, these are the mango varieties that are the most sought after around the world because of sweetnesss (Brix) and demand.

The Chaunsa has a Brix rating in the 22 degree level which is unheard of!
Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.
Perhaps it is time for a GLOBAL taste test ???

Alphonso (mango)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Alphonso (हापुस Haapoos in Marathi, હાફુસ in Gujarati, ಆಪೂಸ್ Aapoos in Kannada) is a mango cultivar that is considered by many[who?] to be one of the best in terms of sweetness, richness and flavor. 

It has considerable shelf life of a week after it is ripe making it exportable. 

It is also one of the most expensive kinds of mango and is grown mainly in Kokan region of western India.

Mangoes date back 65 million years according to research ...

Experts at the Birbal Sahni Institute of Palaeobotany (BSIP) here have traced the origin of mango to the hills of Meghalaya, India from a 65 million year-old fossil of a mango leaf. 

The earlier fossil records of mango (Mangifera indica) from the Northeast and elsewhere were 25 to 30 million years old. The 'carbonized leaf fossil' from Damalgiri area of Meghalaya hills, believed to be a mango tree from the peninsular India, was found by Dr R. C. Mehrotra, senior scientist, BSIP and his colleagues. 

After careful analysis of the fossil of the mango leaf and leaves of modern plants, the BISP scientist found many of the fossil leaf characters to be similar to mangifera.

An extensive study of the anatomy and morphology of several modern-day species of the genus mangifera with the fossil samples had reinforced the concept that its centre of origin is Northeast India, from where it spread into neighbouring areas, says Dr. Mehrotra. 

The genus is believed to have disseminated into neighb…
