They have already sent mango to retailers across the country.
“We are pleased to note that the first two containers of mango from Guatemala arrived last week at the port of Valparaiso,” said Eddie Martinez, DFT Agrotropic general manager.
Two more mango containers of 20.8 tons were sent by Frutico. In just the first three flights, Guatemala will ship over 64 tons of fruit to Chile. According to the results of the first sales, marketers will be able to assess the preferences of mango consumers in Chile regarding sizes and varieties, and in 2020, the country's producers expect to increase supply volumes and develop a large-scale export program for the Chilean market. As Peru and Ecuador finish the season by May - June, Guatemala in this period gains an advantage in the world market.
