THE POWER OF WALMART'S PRODUCE SECTION












Kohl's was made for Walmart's grocery customers

While many retailers want their stores to be as far away from a Walmart Supercenter as possible, Kohl's probably wants to be in the very same shopping center. 






The reason, according to Pam Goodfellow, consumer insights director at Prosper Insights & Analytics, is that when consumers have finished up shopping for groceries at Walmart, they are most likely to head to Kohl's to buy clothing for their families.





In all, these Walmart shoppers spend up to $7 billion a year on clothing and a "good proportion" of that is going to Kohl's. Over the past decade, Ms. Goodfellow wrote on Forbes.com, the number of consumers that list Walmart as their primary destination for groceries has continued to grow, while those listing it as the main place they buy clothes has waned.





For example, the proportion of Walmart grocery shoppers who buy women's clothes at Kohl's has increased from 3.4 percent in February 2005 to 11.8 percent today, according to Prosper's research. This increase mirrored Kohl's national expansion over the same period when its store count went from 640 to 1,162, based on reporting by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.






While retailers employing Hi-Lo pricing models have not fared very well against Walmart in grocery, it is this same strategy that has helped Kohl's gain share of the clothing market, according to Ms. Goodfellow.




"The Kohl's shopper, I think, is one of the most interesting shopper groups to look at because they are 100 percent invested in coupons and promotions and the Kohl's Cash," she told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

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.

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.

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…
