Hong Kong firm to import Aussie mangoes into Indonesia

Subject to local regulatory approvals, Hong Kong based Plantations International plans to start importing Australian "Kensington Pride" Mangoes into Indonesia says Mr. Marvin Lee
, the director of communications for Plantations International for the Asia Pacific Region. 

According to Mr. Lee, Plantations International has incorporated a local Indonesian subsidiary who will be handling the mango transaction and due to a strong consumer demand that outstrips current supply levels, Indonesia is shaping up as a huge export market for Australian mangoes this year.
 
According to the Australian Mango Industry Association (AMIA) the reopening of the Indonesian market is good news for the Australian mango industry, which has set an ambitious goal of exporting 20 per cent of the national crop each year by 2020. Mr Lee, says the Indonesian market has a lot of potential.
 
The Kensington Pride mango is a named commercial mango cultivar that originated in Australia. It is sometimes called the KP, Bowen or Bowen special. It is Australia's most popular mango, accounting for over 80% of Australia's annual commercial mango market.
 
In Australia, commercial Kensington Pride mangoes grow predominantly in the Northern Territory and northern and central Queensland, providing early September to November and late season December to February mangoes respectively. Some late-season fruit are from the remote Kununurra region in Western Australia. 
 
At maturity the Kensington Pride Mangoes are around 500 grams in weight.
