JAMPRO announces more frequent mango shipments to US

According to a statement from Jamaica Promotions Corporation (JAMPRO), two Jamaican companies have partnered with an international buyer, Seasons Farm Fresh to export more mangoes to the US. This is good news for mango lovers in the US!

President of JAMPRO, Diane Edwards said that there is high demand for Jamaican fresh produce and that JAMPRO is focused on supporting the agricultural sector’s growth to meet this demand.

Edwards also said, “The Government of Jamaica is committed to finding new ways to develop agriculture not only for export but for local consumption. With more public and private partnerships, and increased support to our farmers and exporters, we believe we will see further expansion in the export of fresh produce and value-added products.”

After a successful first shipment completed on April 30, the local agribusiness companies, Dawson Trading and Carita Jamaica will follow twice a week with shipments throughout the season.

JAMPRO said that Rita Hylton, CEO of Carita Limited noted that the potential for mangoes was great, and more growth was needed in the production of the fruit.  It is estimated that investing in mango orchards can have a 33.7 percent average return on investments over a 10-year period.

“The potential value of this business is so huge. It is good to have the hype and excitement for the first shipment, but the market needs the production of good fruit to increase dramatically,” Hylton said.

In South Florida we all have our own mango trees but good for the people who have to buy mangos.
