EURO MARKET : Mango market stabilising again





















“Demand and prices for airplane mangoes high”









Trade in mangoes has been very good in recent weeks. The current market situation is different compared to a month earlier when the market was still ‘screaming’ for this tropical fruit. The supply of seaborne cargo has increased again up until now. 



“Because the volumes of boat mangoes will be sufficient for now, the market will stabilise in coming weeks,” says Ive Lambert of Starfruit.




Airplane peak


Lambert indicates that demand for boat mangoes is slightly less right now, and that prices have dropped. 



“Demand for airplane mangoes, on the other hand, is very high. Currently, there is limited supply and prices have increased sharply. The smaller supply is because Ivory Coast has left the market, and just a few boats are underway, but no air cargo. I expect this will continue peaking for at least two more weeks. We already received some Mexican mangoes, but most importers will only start these in a few weeks.”


Senegal is late

In terms of origins Starfruit receives the final seaborne cargo from Ivory Coast.
“We are now also getting supply from Mali and after that Senegal will arrive. Senegal is weeks later than it was last year. I expect them to arrive at the end of July, or even the beginning of August. It is possible that Senegalese cultivators decide to start picking earlier, because there will probably be shortages again by then. Mali is not the best mango country, and there will definitely be demand. Senegal has to be careful not to start picking too soon, because that will not result in the best possible quality. A few days longer on the trees can sometimes do wonders,Lambert concludes.

THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER MANGOES IN THE WORLD ....

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 ???

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.
