Cuba’s mango processing industry intensifies its activity
The increase in mango production in Cuba has favored the increase in activities of the processing industry, which is in charge of producing nectars, pulps, jams, and compotes of this fruit. Several installations of Ciego de Avila have intensified their processing work, particularly the Agribusiness Company Citricos Ceballos, which undertakes the highest levels of processing in this campaign.
That entity destines its mango to manufacture marmalade and puree for the national market and for export, said Wilber Bringas, the general director of the Citricos Ceballos company.
Mango is rich in vitamins and minerals, and the juices, soft drinks, and smoothies made out of it are currently offered in a stable manner in points of sale at hospitals, the gastronomic sector, and self-employed workers in the province of Ciego de Avila.
