“Demand for mangoes in EU increasingly stronger in summer”









Carlos Andre de Faria, Sun City:


“From the start of the African season in May, mango prices have been at a stable level between 5.50 and 6.50 Euro for standard mangoes, with prices for ready-to-eat mangoes slightly higher. Demand is stable and I do not expect an increase or large volumes which could put pressure on the prices,” says Carlos Andre de Faria of Sun City in Bleiswijk, the Netherlands.





“Mainly Senegal is on the market in June and July, followed by Israel in July and August, and Spain and Brazil start from September,” Andre de Faria continued. “Traditionally, Senegal does Kent mangoes. Israel has a number of local strains – Tommy Atkins, Kent, Shelly, Keitt and Maya – of which Tommy Atkins and Keitt represent the largest volumes. Spain mostly offers Osteen mangoes, and Brazil offers Tommy Atkins, Palmer, Keitt and in later phases Kent, but by then it is already Christmas.”




Carlos Andre de Faria left Brazil for the Netherlands nine years ago, in order to start a sales office for the European market. 




The company represents one of the largest mango producers in Brazil and supplies a number of European importers and retailers of mangoes.


“In general, demand for mangoes in summer was always a bit lower, but I am under the impression that demand in the largest EU countries, such as Germany, France, the United Kingdom and Spain, is becoming increasingly stronger in summer.”
