Philippines faces two million kilogram mango surplus

The Philippines has a surplus of more than two million kilos of mangoes following a bumper harvest.

The El Niño phenomenon occurs naturally and has a major influence on weather patterns around the world.

The government has launched a marketing campaign in a bid to sell one million kilos of the fruit in June before they begin to rot.
