PRAN, one of the biggest agro-processors in the country, has started its annual mango collection and pulping activities to produce mango drink, juice, mango bars and other food items, says a press release.

This year, PRAN has started collecting and pulping the mango in its plants of PRAN Agro Ltd factory in Natore and Barind Industrial Park in Rajshahi from June 1. PRAN has set a target to procure 50,000 tonnes of mangoes for the season.

Roknuzzaman Rubel, Assistant General Manager of Barind Industrial Park, said, "We're sourcing mangoes from Rajshahi, Natore, Chapainawabganj, Naogaon, Thakurgaon, Meherpur, Jhenaidah, and Satkhira. Initially, we're focusing on procuring Guti mangoes in the first phase. Following this, we'll move on to collecting Ashwani varieties until the mango supply lasts."

Kamruzzaman Kamal, Director (Marketing) of PRAN-RFL Group, said, "Pulp is being produced in our plants using aseptic technology. The advantages of this technology are to preserve the pulps for two years maintaining its taste and freshness without the need for preservative. We are manufacturing mango juice and drinks throughout the year using this preserved pulp. PRAN is now exporting mango juice and drinks to 145 countries around the globe."
