Mango Farmers and New Store Openings


by Phil Hughes May 16, 2017 1 Comment

In early April, 2017, Mavuno Harvest founder Phil Hughes traveled to Cote D’ Ivoire and Burkina Faso to attend the first ever West African Mango Symposium sponsored by USAID (United States Agency for International Development). The goal of the conference was to educate people about the potential for fruit exports from West Africa. While fresh fruit is still a good outlet for farmers, they are still only able to export about 30% of their fresh mango crop. Drying fruit (especially mangos in West Africa) is an excellent way to sell more of their harvests, and Mavuno Harvest is proud to be the largest U.S. buyer for African organic mangos.

“The opportunity that excites me is – through the processing of mangos , you can actually increase incomes of the smallholder farmers – at their level.”

New store openings, summer 2017:

We’re extremely excited for some big new store openings over the next few months including Lunds & Byerly’s (MN), Raley’s (CA), Safeway (OR), Rite Aid (National), National Co-op Grocers (National) and many more! As Mavuno Harvest continues to push and grow, the need for high quality organic dried fruit also grows. Good news for farmers as we continue to solidify an export market for them.
