PHILIPPINES: The Secret Behind Cebu’s Sweet Mangoes ...

.





The Cebu mango which is called the Carabao or Guadalupe mango is in a class of its own, bright yellow on the outside and a bright orange sweet smooth meat on the inside.



The texture of the Cebu mango is unbelievably smooth silky and juicy, most mangoes around the world have a fibrous texture, it is the lack of fibre and all of the above which make Cebu mango stand out from other varieties around the world.




It is commonly acknowledged that the secret to the Cebu mango is the climate, occasionally when we have had a wet or cool season mango production goes down and the quality of the mangos suffer.






All the growers will tell you sunshine is the secret.




There are many companies producing dried mango and these products are exported all around the world. So don’t forget when you come to Cebu, you have to get out and buy some of those mangoes you will be hooked, they are fantastic.




Making sure Cebu’s reputation as the “dried mango capital” of the country, Profood spent P20 million into a complex…

Foto: Reuters (Londres, 12 de agosto – AFP) – Rio de Janeiro tomó el domingo la posta olímpica en el cierre de los Juegos de Londres-2012 con un espectáculo que rindió homenaje al carnaval carioca, pero también mostró fusión musical y modernidad y tuvo como gran invitado sorpresa a “O Rei” Pelé. El inicio de la presentación preparada por Brasil fue un guiño de ojo al “traspaso de mando”, ya que un tradicional barrendero carioca, interpretado por Renato Sorriso, apareció con su escoba en el centro del estadio Olímpico de Stratford y un responsable de seguridad quiso detenerlo. El barrendero, personaje del Sambódromo durante los desfiles de las Escolas de Samba, se puso a bailar al ritmo de una batucada y logró convencer al oficial de sus “buenas intenciones” olímpicas, sumándolo a su danza. Con el estadio de Londres convertido por un rato en Rio de Janeiro, surgió la cantante carioca Marisa Monte para interpretar las “Bachianas” …

LATIN AMERICA'S SILICON VALLEYS ...

With less than two weeks left to The Next Web Conference Latin America, we help you get ready with a new post series that will bring you everything you need to know about this exciting region.





This was the first question we tried to answer when we kickstarted our Latin America channel 14 months ago: Where is Latin America’s Silicon Valley?





The answer, as you may remember, is that there isn’t one – but rather a multiplicity of tech hubs all across the south of the continent.




It is important to note that a lot has happened over this period, which is not very surprising in a fast-growing region such as Latin America. Foreign VC funds have moved South, accelerators have mushroomed and new opportunities have blossomed – not just in capital cities, but also in regional hubs.




Although some may disagree, we tend to think of this fragmentation as a strength. As a matter of fact, it also means that wannabe entrepreneurs can attend meet-ups in their own city, connect with a like-minded crowds and lo…
