Mangoes are currently flooding into the market. Due to the large volumes, purchasers have a lot of room for making choices. In addition, they also know that farmers are concerned about mangoes going bad due to the hot weather, which has naturally led prices to go down. The purchase price in some areas has fallen to 1 yuan per half a kilo. There is now another huge problem in sight, with Vietnamese mangoes resuming export to China and Pakistan and Thailand eyeing the Chinese market.
Vietnam, Pakistan, and other countries are on the verge of exporting large volumes to China, which is not necessarily a good thing. From the standpoint of quality alone, in order to strengthen the Chinese mango industry, quantity and quality have been improved tremendously, both in planting techniques and brand promotion. Mangoes from China have also gradually entered global markets. In fact, importing mangoes is no longer a cause for fear, as consumers only need to compare for themselves.
In addition, the price of local mangoes last year was roughly between 1 and 2 yuan per half a kilo, while those imported were marketed for as high as 18 yuan. Facing such a huge price gap, consumers should be more rational in making purchases. With rational consumption, they are not only able to get more affordable and good-quality products but are also able to help Chinese farmers.
