"Processed mangoes enable exporters to serve their markets even during off-season period for fresh mangoes. Ripe mangoes may be frozen whole or peeled, sliced and packed in sugar (1 part sugar to 10 parts mango by weight) and quick-frozen in moisture-proof containers. The diced flesh of ripe mangoes, bathed in sweetened or unsweetened lime juice, to prevent discoloration, can be quick-frozen, as can sweetened ripe or green mango puree." 


"Immature mangoes are often blown down by spring winds. Half-ripe or green mangoes are peeled and sliced as filling for pie, used for jelly, or made into sauce, which, with added milk and egg whites, can be converted into mango sherbet."

 "Green mangoes are peeled, sliced, parboiled, then combined with sugar, salt, various spices and cooked, sometimes with raisins or other fruits, to make chutn…

Retailer says it has "learned a lot" since beginning program 18 months ago

Wal-Mart said it has learned to treat each supplier uniquely and when to let vendors run their own transportation since taking control of inbound logistics from its suppliers 18 months ago.

“We’ve learned a lot,” said Greg Forbis, the retailer’s senior director, inbound general merchandise transportation.



Wal-Mart launched a program in mid-2010 to take over deliveries of inbound freight where they saw opportunities to do the work better than vendors could do under prepaid freight terms. The shift by the world’s largest retailer to increased use of freight-collect terms sent shock waves through the transportation industry.



Wal-Mart has had to realize that “every supplier is unique and there’s not one cookie-cutter format that fits everything,” Forbis said at the annual …

GUMASA, Glan, Sarangani, Philippines — Agriculture Secretary Proseso Alcala guaranteed growers of Philippine mango with his department’s support as he graced the 13th National Mango Congress at Isla Jardin del Mar resort in Gumasa.

“Rest assured that the DA (Department of Agriculture) will continue with support programs including the establishment and rehabilitation of nurseries and foundation scion grove, household and village processing assistance and crop
improvement especially for climate change adaptability,” Alcala told 322 registered delegates on Friday at the closing of the three-day mango congress here.

Alcala reported a seven percent growth in the annual production of mangoes in 2010 which was reportedly “prompted by the continuous flower induction in Central Luzon, CALABARZON, Bicol Region and all the Visayas regions.”

However, a decline of 5.3 percent during the early months this year was noted. He…

IT'S the time Ipswich mango munchers have spent more than a year holding out for.

Following a bumper 2009-2010 harvest, the record wet weather of last summer destroyed much of the local mango crop before it even got started.

With this spring bringing Ipswich's mango trees into blossom - this time with much drier conditions - backyard growers are hoping to be filling buckets with delicious mangoes again in a few months' time.

Silkstone resident David Jensen said his two Bowen-producing trees had a lame year last year.

"It usually runs in that cycle, where you go well every second year," Mr Jensen said.

"If it rains the fungus gets into them and you've got to spray them and, of course, most people don't bother spraying them."

Brassall garden expert Chelsea Van Rijn said the disease anthracnose could kill …

Climate a key issue in mango congress




KORONADAL -- Climate change adaptation must be given serious consideration if the country wants to bolster the competitiveness of its mango industry in the global market, with Mindanao cited as a potential major producer due to its “favorable year-round weather.”



This was the key point that emerged at the three-day 13th National Mango Congress, with the theme “Positioning the Philippine Mango Strongly in the World Market.”


Virginia I. dela Fuente, president of the Philippine Mango Industry Foundation, Inc., said mango producers should adapt to climate change for the country to become a stronger player in the global mango market.


She vowed to promote Mindanao as a mango production hub not only because of its “good climate condition” but also because of the islands’ vast undeveloped and fertile lands.


Mindanao has been relatively known as typhoon-free over the years although flooding in recent years has b…
