São Francisco Valley in the Northeast of Brazil is the region with the highest production of tropical fruits, known in particular for its exportations of mangoes.
Innovative irrigation techniques have changed this semi-arid region into a real fruit oasis, where is possible a year-round cultivation of tropical fruits. This is the biggest advantage in comparison to other growing regions in Brazil.
The region, including the neighborhoods close to Petrolina, PE, Juazeiro and Casa Nova, BA offers around 240.000 direct jobs.
Through continuous investment in research and development, the region could meet the huge demand from the international and domestic markets.
