It takes TWO to mango!
The Philippines is home to the sweetest mangoes in the world. It’s easy to forget how good we have it, but an amazing occurrence is when our own produce meets the hands of inventive recipes!
Ever since the overproduction of our quality mangoes earlier this year, it’s been mango on our minds all the time. But there’s no such thing as too much.
Fun fact: Did you know that the Philippines produces about 900,000 tons of mangoes every year?
