Mexican mango volumes up on last year
























The Mexican mango season is about to start, and prospects point to a greater production than in the previous campaign. 


"We'll start on 8 April and we have already scheduled the first shipment," affirms Nadia Martínez, of BQ Fruits.


"We will ship about 30 to 40 pallets per week. At first, we'll start with 6 pallets per week and we'll gradually increase the volume. If we have enough availability, we should reach 50 pallets per week,"
she continues. She expects the season to come to an end in August.

Production is expected to increase compared to the previous campaign, which started slowly, without much availability until May-June, but Martínez believes that the peak this season will be recorded much earlier. 


"We want to start in April with the variety Haden; we will then move on to the Tommy Atkins and we'll finish with the Kent," explains the exporter.


BQ Fruits exports most of its mangoes to the European market, especially Spain, the Netherlands and France. 


Martínez also mentioned a potential customer in the UK and plans to enter Japan. 



Since the Peruvian season is over, their biggest competitor is Senegal, along with other countries, such as Ivory Coast, Brazil and Costa Rica, which supply other mango varieties, but at a lower price.


"Above all, we want to offer high quality to our customers. We want them to know they are paying for a quality product, fresh and ready to eat,"
explains Martínez. 


"Rather than competing on prices, I think we compete in quality, in the way we work and, above all, in how much we look after the mango ripening process."


The company wants to seek new markets in the future as Italy and the United Kingdom with the Ataulfo ​​variety.


"It is another variety, sweeter and fibrous, but which we believe can also be successful," she concludes.

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.
