It had been two years since the last visit to the banana and mango coops we partner with, 2 years! time flies.
It felt good to be back to Lima and to the region of Piura in Northen Peru where bananas and mangos grow. In Ecuador, we visited ASOGUABO for the first time since we starting working with them, almost a year ago. Familiar faces but also new ones, good people, lots of smiles and the pleasure to shake the hands of coop members who work very hard to send us high quality products!
APROMALPI mangos, Chulucanas, Piura, Peru
During our last visit at APROMALPI, they were gearing up for what is announced as a very good year for Peruvian mangos! The winter temperatures have been cool enough for the trees to bloom appropriately which will lead to much better yields than last year where winter temperatures were too mild.
