Mangal Trading Inc., spearheaded by young entrepreneur Nila Mangal, is quickly building a reputation as a leading exporter of agricultural produce in Saint Lucia.
Since the company’s introduction to Export Saint Lucia in mid-2017, it has been able to sustain successful shipments of agricultural produce to the United Kingdom (U.K.) and the Caribbean region.
Its most recent shipment was a consignment of plantains to a new buyer in the Antiguan market. The buyer expressed immense satisfaction with the first shipment and is looking forward to further shipments from Mangal Trading Inc.
Ms. Mangal said that for exports, the company sources its agricultural produce from farmers across the island to supplement production from its banana and plantain farm in Bexon. She encourages local farmers to not only grow more produce, but also to diversify their crops as demand for fresh agricultural produce continues to grow in various export markets.
