Dubai will soon have its turn to relish  hand-picked mangoes from the Philippines as freshly harvested ones from Cauayan, Isabela left today on board a Cebu Pacific flight to this international city that never sleeps.

Inquirer reported that a maiden cargo of some  1,200 kilograms of  fresh mangoes packaged in 75 fresh mango-labeled boxes were flown from Cauayan Domestic Airport to Dubai.

The report, filed by Villamor Visaya, Jr., cited Virginia Dela Fuente, Philippine Mango Industry Foundation Inc. president, as saying that the export to Dubai was a result of  a series of “mango conventions,” one of which was the 21st National Mango Congress held March 19 to 21 at the Isabela State University in Echague, Isabela.

“This is a realization of a more productive export of mangoes and we foresee more exports soon in the Middle East and other countries,” Dela Fuente was quoted in the news report as saying.

She said there was a global demand for mangoes and that mango growers and traders should seize the opportunities for more exports.
