Export of mango from Vietnam
Batches of mangoes are exported from Vietnam before they are ripe. The best conditions for the mango ripening process is a high, stable temperature.
So there is a risk that during export shipment, mangoes may lose their tastiness and health benefits due to varying storage temperatures.
