By Anne Sewell     Nov 17, 2013 in Food
Three entrepreneurs from Vélez-Málaga in southern Spain have introduced the country's first 100 percent natural, locally-sourced mango jam, called Mermelada Mango Málaga, (hence the "mmm").
The new product was launched at the The Taste of Málaga event recently, and is made totally from locally sourced fruit grown in the Axarquia and along Granada's Costa Tropical.
Rosa Martín, one of the company's owners, told a press conference that the jam lacks any kind of preservatives or dyes and is manufactured with 75 percent mango pulp, 22 percent sugar and 3 percent lemon juice.
"Our company grows, checks, picks, selects and processes the product to get a delicious and healthy jam," said Martín.
Martín said that they are initially producing a total of 20,000 jars in two formats, a jar of 280 grams, whose price will be 3.5 euros and another of 45 grams, which will be sold in a three-unit pack at around 2.5 euros.
She stressed that the ingredients are 100 percent natural and the produce will be sold in gourmet shops, food stores and fresh fruit outlets both countrywide and abroad.
According to Europapress (in Spanish) the company is based in the city of Vélez-Málaga, whose mayor, Francisco Delgado Bonilla, has expressed the municipality's support for the three entrepreneurs: Rosa Martín, Antonio Ruiz and José Luis Torres.
"We continue to support agribusiness as the key strategic sector in our economy," said Delgado Bonilla, as he carried on to congratulate the company for "marketing a product made from organic mangoes, which has also has generated three direct jobs."
More details can be found on the company's Facebook page (in Spanish).
