Mango cold-storage facility to be built in Nay Pyi Taw

A public cold-storage facility that will be able to capacitate the storage of 10,000 tonnes of mangos will be definitively constructed in Nay Pyi Taw during 2017, U Thein Naing, owner of Food Garden, has informed Myitmakha News Agency.
The cold storage facility will reportedly be completed by April 2017, and will serve as a location to store mangos for international export.

“The cold storage facility will be built after reviewing the state of mangos being produced by local farmers. The facility is intended to be up-and-running in time for the forthcoming mango season. For now, a survey on potential investors in the project will be carried out,” said U Thein Naing.

Field studies are currently being carried out, while Swiss agricultural experts will reportedly assist mango farmers on gratis with required technology, fertilizers and machinery.

“It would be great if this project comes to fruition. It could be beneficial; farmers would see healthy profits. At the moment, mango farmers are losing about 50 per cent of their crops. Farmers would benefit greatly is measures could be taken to prevent such losses,” said Daw Than Than Swe, chair of the Mandalay Mango Association.

Mangos will be brought from farmers at market prices during the mango season. Once the mango season draws to a close, dried fruits and ready-made vegetables will then be exported to international markets.

The majority of mangos are brought from mango farmers in Nay Pyi Taw, Taungoo, Mandalay and Meiktila, with educational initiatives to also be carried out with mango growers in these regions.
