Mango farmers benefit immensely from collective marketing

Mango is the king of fruits. It is one of the most popular and nutritionally rich fruits with unique flavour and health promoting qualities, thus making it the most popular seasonal fruit grown in the tropics. Mango is a valuable fruit tree grown in arid and semi-arid regions in Kenya where income generating activities available to the resource poor farmers are limited.
