Mango plant scheme

This article was originally published in Foodnews

THE African Development Bank has granted a KES10.0 million (US$139 100) loan to the Malindi Farmers Co-operative Society in Kenya to build a mango juice plant in the region. The investment is part of a plan to revive horticulture in Malindi and reduce the over-dependence on tourism. The World Bank's Comprehensive Develop-ment Framework will provide another KES1.7 million for the project. Babu Musa, the district agricultural officer, said one-acre demonstration farms have been started in all six divisions of the area to teach farmers how to grow fruits and vegetables for local and foreign markets. "Tonnes of mangoes and other fruits rot in (farms) every season but the juice plant to be built beginning December will curb this wastage," Musa said during a mango exhibition in Msabaha.
