Mangoes to Canada.

The Agency for Reconstruction and Development (ARD), through its efforts with the Marketing and National Importing Board (MNIB), on July 14 said that during the first two weeks of July the MNIB made two shipments averaging 2,000 pounds of mangoes per shipment to Canada, using a new passenger and freight service from Network Airlines Services (NAS), operators of Sky Services and Zoom Airlines. Gen. Mgr. Fitzroy James said the mangoes were sourced from about 200 farmers; NAS also plans to provide freight and passenger services from Grenada to other international destinations. Weekly freight capacity to Canada through this service will average about 6,600 lbs. In promoting increased exports of Grenada's exotic fruits, the ARD commissioned a study which recommends establishment of 2,800 acres of fruit tree orchards, including mango, avocado, soursop, golden apple, guava, breadfruit and tamarind.
