Philippines is currently undergoing crisis — a mango crisis!
Yes, the tropical country is experiencing a surplus of over 2 million kilos of mangoes as we speak.
According to the Agriculture Secretary of Philippines, Emmanuel Pinol, this is due to a naturally occurring phenomenon, a “dry spell called El Niño.”
There is a surplus of about 2 million kilos of mangoes now, and this is only in Luzon. We need to do something about this in the next two weeks.
To which us desis are probably like:
From launching campaigns to promoting mango recipes, the Government of Philippines is doing everything they can to sell at least 1 million kilos before they start to decay.
They're also currently priced at the peso equivalent of ₹60 per kilo. So, I guess we're heading to Luzon, Philippines then.
No. But seriously, Philippines. We're more than happy to help. Just tell us when we should land up.
