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.

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…
