The popular fresh solo papaya of Tupi town in South Cotabato, Philippines has finally reached the fruit market of South Korea.

Milagros Casis, Department of Agriculture (DA) Region 12 director, said Tuesday Tupi papaya producers had made their first shipment to South Korea last week through a supply deal with a Korean firm.

She said the shipment, which comprised of a ton of fresh solo papaya, was consigned to Korean distributor Nurida Company.

The forging of the supply agreement and the delivery of the initial shipment was facilitated by the agency, she said.

“We’ve been exploring and working on sending more of our local products to foreign markets and that is one of our priorities right now,” she said.

Citing the supply agreement between Tupi farmers, represented by local consolidator RM Fruits and the Korean firm, she said two to three metric tons of solo papaya would be shipped to South Korea on a weekly basis following the initial shipment.
