What our growers have to say about the mango conference:


Just read the program for the 2017 Australian Mango Conference in Bowen, and it looks great.  There are a number of talks listed from guest speakers which I’m keen to hear and it sounds like they’ll be very relevant to my farming practices. On top of this I always look forward to catching up with other growers and hearing what is happening in their districts. The farm trips are an added bonus.

Marketing


PR

Despite it being the last couple of weeks of the official mango season, the Australian media is still throwing their support behind our late-season harvests, with an abundance of recipes appearing this week.
 
Australian Natural Health Magazine included a mango-melon sorbet recipe, blogger Not Quite Nigella published a recipe for mango and lime 'right side up' tart, Grazia published a recipe for 'squad bowls' with mango, Women's Fitness shared a recipe for dragon fruit and mango smoothie bowl, whilst health blog I Quit Sugar shared a recipe for mango and pomegranate salad.
Food to Love shared our very own freezing and slicing tips with their community, reminding all consumers to get the last mangoes of the season before they're gone! 

SOCIAL

On our social channels, another Instagram-based food influencer, @nourishingnicola, has run a competition with her community, asking them to tag their friends and follow our account, in a bid to continue keeping mangoes top of mind for the consumers. The post has received 535 likes and 57 entries. 
Keep your eyes out for our end-of-season farewell video, which will be posted to Facebook and Instagram early next week. It will feature growers from many mango growing regions around Australia, and directly thanks our extremely engaged and enthusiastic community for their ongoing support throughout this past season!
