AS EURO COLLAPSES .... WHAT WILL SOUTH AMERICAN MANGO EXPORTERS DO WITH SURPLUS SUPPLY ???

Walker's World: The euro endgame


by Martin Walker
London (UPI) Nov 28, 2011







Pessimists in Europe now assume the euro will collapse before Christmas. Optimists think it can limp on until the last week in January, when Italy has to persuade the markets to buy $43.7 billion of its debt.


Even if that feat is achieved, and assorted Italian patriots are campaigning for the country's still-wealthy citizens to buy it themselves, in the final week of February another $65.5 billion of Italian debt has to be sold to the markets.



Asian and U.S. banks andinvestors are dumping euro-denominated bonds and obligations. The Fitch ratings agency claims that U.S. money-market funds have cut their exposure to European banks by more than 40 percent in the last six months. U.S. banks and pension funds appear to be dumping their nearly $400 billion euro holdings.




It all looks very grim and the whole European economy is sinking fast into recession. The old continent's governments have launched a series…

PERUVIAN MANGO EXPORTERS TURN TO "VALUE ADDED" PRODUCT LINES ...

Peru beats Mexico on dried mango export returns



November 29th, 2011






Peruvian dried mango exports are fetching better prices than their Mexican counterparts in key destination markets, website Andina.com.pe reported.  



The story reported the Peruvian dried fruit was selling for between US$6-10 per kg (2.2lbs) while Mexican dried mangoes were stuck at around the US$6 per kg mark.


Procesos Agroindustriales general manager Luis Llanos, said this was because the mangoes were organic and dehydrated using hot air to evaporate the water to keep the fruit’s flavor.

He added that Peruvian fruit had a similar taste to South African dried mangoes because the same processes were used.

“We buy directly from farmers without intermediaries, and depending on the type of mango we pay 25 to 30 US cents per kilo,” he was quoted as saying.

Although Procesos Agroindustriales grow their own mangoes, because of increasing demand and low projected yields per hectare this year they will have to source more fresh prod…

STUDY CONFIRMS ADVANTAGES OF VERMICOMPOST ...

Vermicompost beneficial for organically grown tomatoes



by Staff Writers
Guelph, Canada (SPX) Nov 24, 2011





Tomatoes grown in a substrate of coconut coir/vermicompost and those grown in a substrate composed of aged pine bark/coconut coir/vermicompost had significantly higher marketable yields per plant when compared with plants grown in rockwool.




Marketable yields of organic horticultural crops frequently fall below those of conventional crops; this and other factors restrict widespread adoptionof organic production.


Researchers recently studied the growth and yield responses of tomatoes grown in organic substrates amended with vermicompost and compared the results with plants grown in a popular growing medium.


"More research in this area is needed to provide a base of information that will lead to the expansion of the organic sector, especially in thegreenhouse industry, to meet consumer demands and preferences", they explained.


Four substrates were used in experiments to determine…

MAP: Rockhampton 4700



Queensland mango growers are disappointed they will not get the bumper crop they had been hoping for.


Many orchards flowered well but a long, cool winter stifled pollination.



Ian Groves owns a mango farm near Rockhampton and says production will be down from about 30,000 trays to just 1,000.



"We'd put all the fungicides and sprays onto the flowers right through winter and into spring and they looked fantastic all the way," he said.



"We had little fruits appear to set but as they became a little larger it became obvious there was no seed inside them.

"Now I can drive up and down rows and find one or two mangoes only, it's pretty disappointing."

Trevor Dunmall from the Australian Mango Industry Association says the picking season is in full swing.

"In north Queensland around Townsville and the Burdekin they've started," he said.

MANGO VALOR AGREGADO: PERU LIDERA CON MANGO DESHIDRATADO

Perú: Mangos deshidratados peruanos tienen mejor cotización que los de México

28 de Noviembre de 2011



Los mangos deshidratados peruanos de exportación se cotizan entre seis y diez dólares el kilo en el mercado internacional, precio superior al que obtiene el mismo fruto de origen mexicano, por el que se paga aproximadamente seis dólares, informó el gerente general de Procesos Agroindustriales, Luis Llanos.

El precio que se paga por el mango deshidratado peruano es similar al que obtiene el fruto de origen sudafricano porque son similares en sabor y en proceso de deshidratación, precisó a la agencia Andina.


Agregó que la empresa, que se instaló hace tres años en el Centro de Exportación, Transformación, Industria, Comercio y Servicios (Ceticos), es junto a Sunshine Export, una de las productoras y exportadoras de mango deshidratado de Perú, pero también exporta plátano y hortalizas.

Los mercados a los que exporta son Estados Unidos, Reino Unido, Japón, China y Alemania.

JUST-FOOD EDITORIAL # 600 ....November 28, 2011

Issue 600

November 28, 2011











Editorial


















Multinational retailers beware.


For all the headlines last week, the passage into India's fledgling and potentially lucrative retail sector is likely to be anything but smooth.

News that the Indian government plans to relax restrictions on foreign investment in the country's retail industry would have initially been greeted warmly in boardrooms at the likes of Wal-Mart, Carrefour and Tesco.

New Delhi's decision to, for example, allow overseas retailers to take a majority stake in a supermarket chain in India does, on the face of it, present a very appealing opportunity for Western retailers keen to tap into the country's growing and ever-more wealthy middle class.





However, the devil is in the detail.




 A retailer that wants to set up a supermarket chain in India will have to meet certain conditions, including a stipulation that it must invest US$100m - and half of that must be spent on infrastructure.

Companies will also be forced to buy 30…

MANGO BY-PRODUCTS ON THE INCREASE ...

Mangoes as beauty products


A NATURAL and organic personal care manufacturer is planning to come out with products made from Cebu’s mango fruit.

Anna Meloto- Wilk, Gandang Kalikasan, Inc. president, said the firm was negotiating with the University of Cebu and SCOPE Foundation for a partnership in developing natural personal care products from the waste mango skin and seed from dried mango factories in Cebu.

“I happen to be one of the judges for an inter-school event here last month and UC had this mango butter technology that we are very interested to try using in our products,” Wilk said.

Based on the information from UC, Cebu generates at least 75 percent of waste mango skin and seed every month.

She said these would be a good source of mango butter and oil that could be used in developing products like lotion, body butter, hair conditioner and massage oil.

“Mango oil is considered a premium product even more expensive than sunflower oil which we are now using in our products. We would be…

TAIWAN'S MANGO EXPORTS TO JAPAN UP 15% BY VOLUME ....

Taiwan’s mango exports to Japan for the first 10 months of 2011 amounted to 1,161 metric tons, with a value of US$8.34 million, up 15.1 percent and 25.7 percent, respectively, from the levels for the same period a year earlier, the Council of Agriculture said Nov. 25. 

Taiwan mangos accounted for 22 percent of Japan’s total mango imports for the period, ranking second globally behind only Mexican mangoes. 


However, Taiwan mangos fetched the highest unit price at 641 yen (US$8.25) per kilogram, ahead of Thai mangoes at 480 yen and Mexican mangoes at 294 yen, according to the COA.
