Mango Sticky Situation

hello world!

The farmers of Kampot cultivate several types of mangoes, known by their local names as Keo Romeat, Phomsen and Keo Chen. At this time of the year, the weather is balmy and mangoes are plentiful. However, these fruits may not always reach the processing plants in time or the demand is insufficient, leading to perfectly good mangoes being dumped.

At r+, we are trying to reduce such wastage by upcycling these fruit into juice or drying them. In this way, we can achieve our aim of reducing detriment to nature and minimising food wastage.
