PUNE: With mango production being just 30 per cent of what it was last year, exports of Alphonsos have declined by 60-70 per cent, say experts. 


This has also pushed the export prices up. 


The Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA) said that the export prices rose by 20-30 per cent compared to last year's. Sudhakar T, deputy general manager, APEDA, Mumbai, said:

18 de Abril de 2011 El Perú y la India iniciarían en mayo negociaciones para lograr un acuerdo de promoción y protección de inversiones y, a la vez, lanzarían el estudio de factibilidad para que alcancen un Tratado de Libre Comercio (TLC) bilateral en el corto plazo, informó el Ministerio de Comercio Exterior y Turismo (Mincetur). “Alrededor de mayo viajará una delegación peruana de la Agencia de Promoción de la Inversión Privada (Proinversión) y del Mincetur a la India, a fin de iniciar el tratado bilateral de inversiones y a la vez utilizar ese espacio para lanzar el estudio de factibilidad del TLC”, señaló el viceministro de Comercio Exterior, Carlos Posada.

MIGRACION DE INVERSIONES AGRICOLA ECUATORIANAS

Perú: Ante el fin del ATPDEA, inversiones Ecuatorianas podrían migrar a PerúEnviar a un amigo Imprimir  | Volver 18 de Abril de 2011 La posibilidad de que las inversiones ecuatorianas en agroexportación migren hacia Perú existen tras la expiración -en febrero pasado- de los beneficios arancelarios que otorgaba Estados Unidos al país vecino a través de la Ley de Preferencias Arancelarias Andinas y de Lucha Contra las Drogas (ATPDEA, por sus siglas en inglés). Así lo dejó entrever Felipe Ribadeneira, presidente ejecutivo de la Federación Ecuatoriana de Exportadores (FEDEXPOR), en conversación con Agraria.pe. Aunque aseguró que “es muy temprano” para afirmar el interés, no lo descartó.

HOW TO LIVE TO 120 BY DR. N.W. WALKER

IMO NOTE : The IMO is constantly reminded of a famous saying as we research certain items: 


 "Everything man needs to know has already been written, but since man does not pay attention, we are forced to reread history" ~ author unknown


This book on Enzymes was written 60 years ago!:


FRESH VEGETABLE AND FRUIT JUICES


Dr. Walker was born January 28, 1867 and I have been told he died in December 1985.


 Dr. Walker began his journey into nutrition in his early 50s after he became very ill. 


At the suggestion of Dr. H. William Baum, a chiropractor in New York City, Dr. Walker rejected the medical route, turned his back on the Sad American Diet of his day, and changed his diet to raw vegetarian.


 Not only did he recover from all of his physical problems, but he went on to live to the ripe old age of almost 120.


Dr. Walker was the "inventor" of carrot juice and became a prolific writer.

THE VALUE OF RAW (UNCOOKED) FRUIT & ENZYMES

IMO NOTE: RAW is very important and HWT treated mangoes lose this characteristic. This main reason that IMO is against HWT mangoes. It is a lose-Lose-Lose situation .
Raw foods and enzymesThe more I study nutrition, the more I am convinced that we need to eat raw uncooked unprocessed food. 
In 1970, Americans spent about $6 billion on fast food. In 2000, they spent more than $110 billion. In 1968, McDonald's had one thousand restaurants. Today McDonald's has about 30,000 restaurants and opens about 2,000 new ones each year. I recommend the book "Fast Food Nation" by Eric Schlosser for a better understanding of what has happened to the American diet in the last few decades. It is becoming increasingly clear that one of the major reasons vegetable juicing works is that it is living raw food.
 I am confident that most of us would notice significant improvements in our energy and health if we increased the amounts of living raw foods in our diet. 
If you juice vegetables on a …

DOES YOUR COUNTRY HAVE A "MORAL OBLIGATION TO FEED THE WORLD"?

Australia: ‘moral obligation to feed the world’Send to a friend Print  | Back April 18th, 2011 Australian Nationals Senator Barnaby Joyce has told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) his country has the moral obligation to feed the world, following World Bank reports that 44 million people had been pushed into poverty since June due to high food prices. The report showed global food prices had risen 36% on what they were 12 months ago, while a further 10% rise could drive antoher 10 million people into poverty. Senator Barnaby Joyce

“Our job is not just to feed the people we feed, but feed the people we can’t feed,” Joyce was quoted as saying. “It’s to provide them with quality food and a great quantity of food. “And it’s absurd that our nation puts up our own private little barriers to our capacity to do that.”

CHINA INTERESTED IN FRUIT FROM ECUADOR

China shows interest in Ecuador’s fruit industrySend to a friend Print  | Back April 18th, 2011 Shanghai World Expo (Group) president Dai Liu has visited Ecuador to discuss trade opportunities with the South American country’s fruit and flower sectors, website Andes.info.ec reported. Liu said local Chinese production and imports from other Asian countries were not enough to satisfy increasing demand, with a need to source products from other regions, the story reported. “The Chinese market is based on three kinds of fruit: fresh fruit, processed fruit too, and also pulp that can be frozen or dry. There is a market for all kinds of fruit, but we want to start with fresh fruit and also open up other markets,” he was quoted as saying.
