"We are very satisfied with arrived qualities from Honduras," says Leon van den Hombergh from Venlo based im/exporter Frankort & Koning BV.
“Brixlevels, firmness and external presentation are really nice and surely this will convince customers to choose for these melons. Right now the weather situation has been very favorable in Honduras and this is clearly visible in the melon qualities."
"We see brix up to 15 and excellent eating qualities. Our partner Agrolibano has invested large amounts of money in new harvest and post harvest techniques, which surely helps to guarantee these quality levels."
"The Molina family has grown melons for decades and is strongly supporting the people in their region. Not only by being a large employer but also with their help to build a children's hospital in the region."
"Right now, we are receiving galia and cantaloupe, later we will receive Charantais/Yellow and Piel de Sapo as well. Shipments will continue until Spanish season will start. With the favorable weather right now, we see that markets are open to promote melons!"
