Insufficient dried mango

This article was originally published in Foodnews

SALES of Philippine dried mangoes remain high but production is still insufficient, a Cebu-based food production company has said. Justin Uy, president of Profood Internat-ional, said the company processes 7 000 tonnes of mangoes every month but cannot meet international demand. Fresh mangoes are sourced from Ilocos Norte, General Santos and Bacolod, Negros Oriental but even a 300ha mango plantation in Bacolod is only good for three weeks production, said Uy. At present, Profood processes 11 types of tropical fruits including soursop, guava, banana, jackfruit, coconut, pineapple and papaya. Mango, pineapple, banana and soursop are the top export sellers. Profood has also moved into fruit concentrates, juices and purées.
