An Giang Province in southern Vietnam has exported 13 metric tons of flat-seed mangos to South Korea, generating eagerness among local farmers, and showing positive signs for mango consumption.

The People’s Committee of Cho Moi District under the province on Monday cooperated with the provincial Department of Agriculture and Rural Development to organize a ceremony to announce the exportation of the first batch of flat-seed mangos to South Korea.

The shipment was conducted by Hoang Phat Fruit Company.

The firm will also start stepping up a value chain for mango production and consumption.

The price of mangos has hovered around VND20,000 (US$0.8) per kilogram over the past few days, while each kilogram of flat-seed mangos was bought at VND32,000 ($1.3) for export, said a representative of the provincial department.

This mango variety has green skin, a small weight, and a flat seed.

Cho Moi District is planning to promote One Commune One Product (OCOP) products in the near future, the representative revealed.

At the event, GAP Cu Lao Gieng Cooperative, Hoang Phat Fruit, and Tin Tam Trading Development and Investment Company signed a deal to consume 500 metric tons of flat-seed mangos and supply input materials to the cooperative’s members in 2024.

An Giang Province is home to about 12,000-hectares of mango farms.

Cho Moi District is the largest mango growing region in the province, with 6,400 hectares.

Nguyen Thi Minh Thuy, vice-chairwoman of the provincial administration, appreciated the efforts from the provincial departments and agencies and Cho Moi District in calling on farmers to join a mango production chain. 

In early January, the province exported green-skinned mangos to Australia and the United States.

Shipping metric tons of mangos to these selective markets resulted from the close collaboration between the administration, firms, and farmers.

The provincial administration will continue making life easier for firms and farmers to build a stable mango material zone and boost a sustainable mango value chain, Thuy said.
