“last year the 2014/15 season was great. We’re very happy with the yield and the quality. We did some good collaborations with Coles and good collaboration with Chinese, Korean and Canadian customers.,” notes Marie Piccone, Managing Director of Manbulloo.

SMALLER FARMS BLAMED FOR PERU'S POOR PERFORMANCE

Rivera said Peru had had such a lower production because the Kent variety (which represents 90% of production) is very sensitive to temperature changes and because of the fragmented production in the country’s mango industry.

(NaturalNews) The science fraud game is over for the biotech mafia. After years of running its corporate con that pushed dangerous poisons into the food supply and the fragile environment, the biotech industry's lies are now exposed and meticulously deconstructed in an exhaustively researched new book launching March 20.





The title of the book? Altered Genes, Twisted Truth - How the Venture to Genetically Engineer Our Food Has Subverted Science, Corrupted Government, and Systematically Deceived the Public by Steven Druker.






The Foreward of the book was authored by one of the most celebrated living scientists in the world: Jane Goodall, PhD, DBE and UN Messenger of Peace. The derogatory "anti-science" slur used by biotech operatives (such as discredited biotech shill Jon Entine) against other scientists won't work against Jane Goodall. Her legacy of …
