The National Mango Board will host its annual networking and outreach event
for the mango industry in association with the Fresh Produce Association of
the Americas during the upcoming Produce Marketing Association's Fresh
Summit in Orlando, FL. The event will take place Oct. 16 from 5:30 p.m. to
7:30 p.m. at the Rosen Centre Hotel.
The mango industry reception will include a presentation with highlights of
the board’s programs, including several key measures of progress since the
board started in 2006.
During the presentation, the proposed assessment increase will be discussed,
and feedback from the mango industry will be requested.
This event has become popular with members of the mango industry from
across the globe, according to William Watson, executive director of the
board. "This is a great opportunity for growers, importers and anyone
involved in the mango industry to get together, see old friends, make new
connections. The event this year will be particularly interesting because we’ll
be talking about the proposed assessment increase."
