Bangladesh mango exports reach five-year high

Mango exports from Bangladesh touched a new high in the outgoing fiscal year thanks to increasing interest among growers and exporters to ship the juicy fruits abroad, official figures showed.  Between July and May of 2021-22, exporters air-shipped 980 tons of mango, up 24 per cent year-on-year, according to data from the Plant Quarantine Wing (PQW) of the Department of Agricultural Extension.

The volume is the highest in five years and officials said the total amount would grow further since mangoes are shipped abroad. Mango exports stood at 790 tons during the entire fiscal year of 2020-21.

The overseas sales of the popular fruit have gone up in recent years as the Agriculture Ministry has been encouraging exporters to sell it in the international markets. It has taken several measures, including providing training to farmers to produce quality mangoes.
