Cameroon’s mango sector is receiving support from organisations in Germany and Israel with the aim of boosting production, improving distribution networks and increasing industrialisation, according to a report from Business in Cameroon.

German development agency Giz and Israeli International Development Agency Mashav are working to achieve these goals with the Cameroonian Ministry of Agriculture.

Yuval Fuchs, deputy managing director of Mashav, paid a recent visit to Cameroon to assess the progress of a nursery project expected to produce around 400,000 mango and pumpkin plants in the towns of Mbankomo and Binguela in the centre of the country.

These seedlings will then be distributed to producers, with the goal of significantly increasing production of mangoes in Cameroon, where mangoes are abundant during the season, then disappear as soon as the season ends.
