Local processing of dried mango’s brings a lot of good to Burkina Faso. It’s a jobcreator, adds value to the product and diversifies the market opportunities for mango This drying, unfortunately, also creates a lot of waste. Around 30% of a mango consists of peel and kernel.
The purpose of project Eplucheur is to extract value from this ‘waste’. The peels contain a lot of fibre and the kernels are a source of valuable oil. A research with Wageningen University has started with the aim to valorise this new value chain.
With this approach we are striving for triple impact: less foodwaste, more income for mango farmers and more jobs in value added processing.
