11th APEM Peruvian International Mango Congress

Increased Peruvian mango export show promise Green Sky fruit caps

Arturo Hernandez has recently attended the 11th International Congress in Peru. The congress was organised and held by APEM (Asociacion Peruviana de Prodctores y Exportadores y mango), the Peruvian mango exporters association.

Green Sky manufacture caps for fruits - papayas, melons and mangoes. The caps primary purpose is to protect the fruit during transportation. The caps are currently being exported to the USA, where the produce companies that buy them target Asian markets, primarily Japan, for cap covered fruits.

The event took place 8th - 9th November and covered such things as good practice in mango cultivation, pests and diseases relevant to the sector and attracting sales in the US market place. To that end the event was attended by the US National Mango Board.

Arturo said that the event promised the potential for his company to access a new market.

"The Peruvian producers seemed to like the product and we are already receiving some orders for the country."

This could prove to be very important as Peru has received the go ahead to export its mangoes to the US, Europe and Asia.
