What our growers have to say about the mango conference:

"It goes without saying that I am probably the most excited person in the mango industry as the 2017 Australian Mango Conference is being held in my hometown of Bowen. With the program that we have developed and the presenters that we have attending, every person in the supply chain from growers to retailers, will benefit from taking the time away from their businesses to attend this conference.” 

- Ben Martin.
