Mozambique: Matanuska due to start exporting Mozambican bananas in October [ 2009-03-11 ]
Maputo, Mozambique, 11 March – Matanuska Moçambique, which produces bananas in 3,000 hectares of the Mozambican district of Monapo, in October is due to start exporting bananas via the port of Nacala, the company’s representative, Sílvia Vaz said.
Vaz said that the company’s officials projected to export a weekly average of 100 40-feet containers.
As part of this project, an irrigation dam is being built, with a daily water storage capacity of 60,000 litres.
Vaz said that the dam was due to be finished in June and would not only provide water to the banana plantation, but also to part of the population of Monapo district, particularly those people living in the area immediately surrounding the project.
In March 2008, US company Chiquita Brands International announced a strategic long term partnership for exporting bananas to European markets from Angola, with Escom, of Portugal’s Espirito Santo Group and from Mozambique with Matanuska Africa Ltd.
