Tropical fruit processing

This article was originally published in Foodnews

A plan by the Rwandan government to buy a fruit juice plant (FOODNEWS 30 April) is nearing completion. The government has set aside US$700 000 to establish the concentrate plant before the end of this year. The project is expected to process 20% of some 31 330 tonnes of passion fruit and 25 500 tonnes of pineapples by 2012. Nyirangama Enterprises, otherwise known as Agashya, will handle the concentrate but does not have the factory to produce it. After completion of this plant, the Democratic Republic of Congo and the Republic of Burundi have been earmarked as potential sites for concentrate plants. As yet no fruit concentrates are produced in these areas.
