Peru: Mango price falls 50%

TGF-FruitImageThe price of a bag of mangoes dropped 50%. This has severely affected farmers in San Lorenzo Valley (Peru), and favors intermediaries.

According to the statement by the chairman of San Lorenzo Valley growers, Ciro Tito Flores, to support farmers facing low prices, they are trying to implement an associative model to add value to the fruit.

He explained that they are trying to implement a processing plant to process fruit pulp produced in San Lorenzo Valley, and thus prevent intermediaries from imposing the price on farmers.

This way, the new product will be exported and marketed in the country, in order to give new opportunities to farmers, currently “cheated” by intermediaries.

“We have also acquired a mango packing plant because it allows the entry to the international market,” pointed out the leader.
