A total of 3,336 tons of Harumanis mangoes from Perlis are expected to be produced throughout the season, this year. The total produce worth will be around RM66.7 million (€13.3 mln). Agriculture and Food Industries Minister Datuk Seri Ronald Kiandee commented: “Hence, a joint promotion involving all parties, including government agencies and private companies, to promote the mangoes via the ‘Harumanis Kembali Lagi’ campaign is being held from today until June 30.”
Kiandee said the Harumanis mango industry would not only increase the traders’ income but also have a significant impact on the economy as well as agro-tourism and downstream industries in Perlis. In this regard, he said the Agriculture Department had also established a strategic partnership with several delivery companies by taking into account the delivery experienced during the movement control order period last year.
