Maersk Line, the world’s leading ocean transportation company and a unit of the A.P. Moller-Maersk Group, announced the formation of a regional, containerized shipping company – SeaLand - dedicated to the intra-Americas market. 





This new affiliate will have a structure similar to Maersk’s other successful regional carriers including: intra-Asia carrier MCC Transport and intra-Europe carrier Seago Line.








SeaLand will feature knowledgeable, local sales and support personnel positioned in North, Central, and South America, as well as the Caribbean, to meet the unique needs of customers throughout the region. 





This agile framework will provide greater flexibility and a higher-level of customer-focused service to these local markets.





 Maersk Line’s existing Intra-Americas service network will be the foundation for SeaLand’s ocean products.








This new, independent unit will officially commence operations on January 1, 2015. 




Maersk Line will begin the transition of their Intra-Americas business to SeaLand in a phased approach throughout 2014. 





The newly established team of approximately 240 highly-skilled personnel will begin their new roles by July 1, 2014. 





SeaLand will be led by Maersk Line veteran, Craig Mygatt, who will serve as CEO. 





The company will be headquartered in the United States with exact location to be determined. 





SeaLand will share specific Maersk Line operational services, such as finance, land-side operations, and HR.






“We heard from our customers that they value Maersk Line services but they required greater service stability and commitment. That’s one of the key reasons why we’re responding with an improved, restructured solution for the Intra-Americas,”
 commented, Craig Mygatt, CEO, SeaLand. 




“We look forward to developing strong, enduring customer relationships as the new SeaLand organization.”







“This reorganization is an investment in our global container business. It enhances and strengthens service in this important and growing trade region, as well as the future of our overall global service network,” 
said Vincent Clerc, chief trade & marketing officer, Maersk Line.








Robbert Van Trooijen, Chief Executive, Maersk Line Latin America and Caribbean said,
 “This new Intra-Americas commitment will meet the needs of Latin American customers that ask for local, customer specialists that are empowered to act quickly and respond to changes in the market. We have a long history in this region that will set the foundation for future growth.”

While "Flavor" is very subjective, and each country that grows mangoes is very nationalistic, these are the mango varieties that are the most sought after around the world because of sweetnesss (Brix) and demand.

The Chaunsa has a Brix rating in the 22 degree level which is unheard of!
Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.
Perhaps it is time for a GLOBAL taste test ???

INDIA 2016 : Mango production in state likely to take a hit this year

TNN | May 22, 2016, 12.32 PM IST






Mangaluru: Vagaries of nature is expected to take a toll on the production of King of Fruits - Mango - in Karnataka this year. A combination of failure of pre-monsoon showers at the flowering and growth stage and spike in temperature in mango growing belt of the state is expected to limit the total production of mango to an estimated 12 lakh tonnes in the current season as against 14 lakh tonnes in the last calendar year.



However, the good news for fruit lovers is that this could see price of mangoes across varieties decrease marginally by 2-3%. This is mainly on account of 'import' of the fruit from other mango-growing states in India, said M Kamalakshi Rajanna, chairperson, Karnataka State Mango Development and Marketing Corporation Ltd.




Karnataka is the third largest mango-growing state in India after Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra.

Mangoes date back 65 million years according to research ...

Experts at the Birbal Sahni Institute of Palaeobotany (BSIP) here have traced the origin of mango to the hills of Meghalaya, India from a 65 million year-old fossil of a mango leaf. 





The earlier fossil records of mango (Mangifera indica) from the Northeast and elsewhere were 25 to 30 million years old. The 'carbonized leaf fossil' from Damalgiri area of Meghalaya hills, believed to be a mango tree from the peninsular India, was found by Dr R. C. Mehrotra, senior scientist, BSIP and his colleagues. 




After careful analysis of the fossil of the mango leaf and leaves of modern plants, the BISP scientist found many of the fossil leaf characters to be similar to mangifera.


An extensive study of the anatomy and morphology of several modern-day species of the genus mangifera with the fossil samples had reinforced the concept that its centre of origin is Northeast India, from where it spread into neighbouring areas, says Dr. Mehrotra. 




The genus is believed to have disseminated into neighb…
