Dubai to import lemons from Mozambique

WAM | 29 January 2017

Jaranda Agricultura Norte is owned by Jacaranda Development Limited Mauritius, which is reportedly owned by South Africans.

Nampula (Mozambique), 26th January, 2017 (WAM/AIM) — A company in the northern Mozambican province of Nampula is to begin producing lemons for export to Dubai later this year.

 The company, Jacaranda Agricultura Norte, is already producing bananas commercially, and its citrus operation will begin with ten hectares dedicated to producing lemons.
According to the General Manager of Jacaranda, Abilio Chipupure, if the business proves sustainable, the company will increase the area devoted to lemons in the near future. “The contract with Dubai is pretty much firmed up”, said Chipupure. “There are just a few technical details to be finalised, such as the forms of packaging and exporting the product. The market is guaranteed. When it’s all fixed, lemon production will take off with the prospect of gradually increasing the area under production.”
