1 in 6 mangoes consumed in the EU are from Africa

According to FruitTop, Europe is expected to consume 300,000 tons of mangoes in 2016. There is increasing room for African mangoes on the European market, where currently 1 in 6 mangoes consumed are from Africa. Latin America remains the largest supplier (460,000 tons) and Peru (70,000 tons) to the EU. The season is not yet finished, but it is estimated that 50,000 tons of mangoes will be exported to Europe this year from the Ivory Coast, Senegal, Mali, Burkina Faso and Guinea. In just a few years the Ivory Coast has managed to double their exports to Europe (to 30,000 tons), and 1 in 10 mangoes will be from the Ivory Coast. These figures are a real achievement, particularly considering the threat from fruit fly. Latin mangoes are no longer concerned with the problem as their main market, the US, has imposed a cold treated against the insect direfctly with the suppliers.
