Pioneering mango exports

This article was originally published in Foodnews

THE first shipment of mangoes from Pakistan will arrive in the US in May or June. The consignment will be sent by air and will first go to an irradiation treatment centre in Iowa. After treatment, the fruit will be shipped to cities with a large Pakistani-American population. Harvest Tradings, the exporter, says that the US would later like to implement sea freight shipments, which would permit a greater quantity of fruit to be exported, and at a lower cost. USAID is also involved in the project and has supported a mango processing facility which will help increase the fruit's shelf life. Pakistan is the third-largestproducer of mangoes in the world.
