Honduras melon export estimate +11%

The executives of companies dedicated to the cultivation and export of melons in Honduras stated that the 2014-2015 melon harvest would begin this Monday in Choluteca and Valle. 

The goal for this season is to generate 70 million dollars in exports, almost 11% more than the $63.1 million made in the 2013-2014 season. In the past two years, employers in this category have exceeded export targets. According to the Secretary of Agriculture, Jacobo Paz, one of the novelties in this crop year is the incursion of the Honduran melon in new markets, mainly Japan and Taiwan.

Honduras exports this fruit to 36 countries and is also seeking to penetrate Saudi Arabia, Dubai, and Hong Kong in the medium term.
