iciHaiti - Agriculture : The francisque mango sector in danger
Let's recall that in October 2022, the United States Department of Agriculture put an end to the import of mangoes from Haiti, (nearly 15 million dollars in revenue for producers), American inspectors can no longer due to insecurity inspect pallets of mangoes before export https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-37969-haiti-agriculture-export-of-mangoes-to-the-usa-suspended.html

An image posted on social media by Sébastien Carrière, Canada's Ambassador to Haiti, shows pallets of Francisque mangoes on the tarmac of Toussaint Louverture International Airport in Port-au-Prince. These mangoes are intended for sale in 5 Montreal grocery stores belonging to Sami Fruits as well as 3 other fresh produce wholesalers in Quebec. A welcome but insufficient opportunity to make production intended for export profitable.

No agreement has been formalized with Canada to start regular trade for the export of mangoes with Haiti, which is trying to find new markets to export its French mangoes, the domestic market being unable to consume the quantity of mangoes produced in country.

This year tons of Haitian mangoes risk rotting in the fields and producers will lose most of their income. Not to mention the loss of thousands of jobs involved in picking, transport, sorting and packaging in packing centers.
