Cambodia: Mango processing plant set for Kampong Speu’s south

A proposal for a mango processing plant in southern Kampong Speu province’s Choam Sangke commune has fueled hopes among the private sector for a boost in exports in finished products made from the fruit. This comes as reports indicate that the quality and quantities of fresh mango exports have fallen short of expectations in early 2023, which has been largely attributed to weather-related factors.

On April 27, The Council for the Development of Cambodia (CDC) announced that it had approved Cambodian Golden Fruit Trading Co Ltd’s $26 million mango processing project, which is set to be located on a 3 ha plot in Ta Ney village of Kampong Speu’s Phnom Sruoch district that is expected to generate 1,450 jobs.

The new venture could help tackle the typical annual mango supply gluts reported during the harvest season, as well as lead to better market value for the crop.
