"Christiaan van Ravenswaaij: "First boat left with few mangoes on board"

EU: First mangoes flown in from Ivory Coast land on empty market

At Van Ravenswaaij in Veenendaal the first mangoes have been flown in from the Ivory Coast. "We traditionally receive the first flown in mangoes around this time and from now on we will get regular deliveries in. Right now the weather is perfect for the mangoes but rain can change that," says Christiaan van Ravenswaaij.

"Last week the first boat departed with very little mangoes on board due to the strict regulations there. The work is done at night on assembly lines and less mangoes are able to be packed. The stringent phytosanitary regulations also contribute to the low volumes. A normal volume is expected with the second boat," says Christiaan. 

Usually the season only lasts four to five weeks, which means that the upcoming month will be very busy. Right now the mango market is quite empty. Peru's season is coming to a close and only small volumes come from Mexico. At the moment the Ivory Coast is the place to be for mangoes," says the importer.
