South Korea gets first mango cargo from Peru


Lima, Jan. 05. 

The first shipment of 1.5 tons of Peruvian mangoes produced in Piura arrived in South Korea today, said Peruvian Ambassador to that country Jaime Pomareda, who took part in the quarantine and inspection process at the Incheon International Airport in Seoul.

The fruit is sourced from Fresh Co. in Piura, northern Peru, and has been acquired by Korean AK Farm, which will be in charge of its distribution to local supermarkets.

This is thought to be the first load of a total of 300 tons expected to be shipped to South Korea through March.

In November last year South Korea opened its market to Peruvian fresh mangoes thanks to technical endeavors made by Agriculture and Irrigation Ministry (Minagri), through the National Service for Agricultural Sanitation (Senasa) in a bid to establish a phytosanitary protocol enabling their entry into this country and others; therefore, exports are estimated to surpass 108,000 tons in this season.

Agriculture and Irrigation Minister Juan Manuel Benites recalled that mango’s access into the Korean market was completed after three years of technical work carried out between Peru’s Senasa and the Animal and Plant Quarantine Agency (QIA) from the Asian nation.

This way the most important economies from Asia such as China (with 1.3 billion potential consumers), Japan (127 million) and South Korea (50 million) will import Peruvian mangoes, given that Senasa assures importers the pest free export of agricultural products.

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 ???
