LOOK: Philippine Saba in New York
Saba in New York. Mindanao bananas, such as this Davao-produced microwavable saba variety, continue to penetrate global markets, including the United States of America. Bananas, which include plantains, fresh, and dried variety is Mindanao’s second top export commodity, with total export value of US$4.26B in 2017, based on data processed by Mindanao Development Authority. To ensure sustained development and discuss emerging industry challenges, banana players are set to converge in Davao City this week for the International Banana Conference slated on October 10-12, 2018 at SMX Convention Center. The event is being organized by the Philippine Exporters Confederation (PHILEXPORT) XI, with MinDA as one of the cooperating partners. Photo credits: Jessica May Montenegro/New York
