Irradiated mangoes from India, Pakistan & Mexico continue growth in USA Marketplace











"During the past 15 years, an increasing amount of irradiated food items have become available including irradiated fruits and oysters. 





There has been strong acceptance of irradiated produce in the United States as well as in Australia and New Zealand. The volume of irradiated produce consumed in the US is approaching 50 million pounds and growing. 




Consumer acceptance of irradiated produce has been excellent and seldom if ever comes up as an issue in a conversation. 




The reality is that people buy products not technologies. 




The vast majority of consumers don't care which food safety intervention has been used as long as the food is safe. "

Irradiation of food continues to move forward rapidly as lychees from Vietnam, mangoes from India, Mexico and Pakistan reach supermarkets around the world.

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.
