National Mango Board appeals to the processed mango industry














The National Mango Board (NMB) will be hosting a free webinar on Thursday, July 31, 2014 at 4 p.m. EDT for a closer look at the NMB programs and how importers of processed mango products may join the NMB. 








The NMB has been working extensively since 2005 to increase awareness and consumption of fresh mangos in the U.S.; consumption of fresh mango has since increased 53% in the U.S. due to demographic growth without any help from the National Mango Board.







 Currently the NMB is looking to gain the support of the processed mango industry to continue with their mission to raise knowledge and understanding of this versatile fruit by taxing growers. 







The NMB hopes to grow their program efforts with the inclusion of processed mango products to broaden consumers’ mango eating experiences.




“Consumers look for ways to expand their eating routines, therefore, by developing platforms that would facilitate awareness of processed mango products we can help simplify consumers’ meal options and consequently increase the overall consumption of this delicious fruit,” stated William Watson, Executive Direction of the NMB.





 “Working together with both fresh and processed mangos at the NMB would be a real boost of energy that would help mangoes become more prevalent not only directly to consumers but also with foodservice and retail outlets.”





This comprehensive webinar will provide an overview of the NMB as well as excellent information for members of the processed mango industry that want to join the Board in their extensive quest to increase mango consumption in the U.S. 





There will be an opportunity for questions and answers at the end of the presentation. 








The NMB encourages importers of processed mango products such as frozen, purée, paste, and concentrate to attend this free webinar.

Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.

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.
