Regional Reports


Burdekin and Bowen

The Burdekin / Bowen season is almost at an end with very small volumes of fruit dispatched from this region last week.  

Mareeba and Dimbulah

Volumes out of this region are slightly down from what was forecast for this week, which is somewhat due to heavy showers in the region. Steady volumes are expected for the next few weeks, with late season varieties commencing in mid-late January.

South East and Central Queensland

Small volumes of fruit are being dispatched from this region, with most growers expected to start picking in mid-January.
The AMIA team will add to these regional descriptions as more information becomes available.

Crop Flow

Last week’s dispatched tray volumes from Bowen/Burdekin, Mareeba/Dimbulah and South East and Central Queensland: 203,769 trays.

Korea Australia Day Event 2017

Australian Mangoes is once again sponsoring the Korean Australia Day Event in Seoul on 12 January. The theme of the event is Australia Day 2017: innovation, creativity, inspiration.

During the event, guests will be treated to the delicious taste of Aussie mangoes with fresh sliced mango; mango sherbet and mango and coconut muffin and Aussie pavlova with mango and passion fruit. These dishes will be served in the ‘Taste Australia’ area incorporated in the event menu.

Australian Mangoes content will also be featured on a continuous loop video playing throughout the event and the words below will be featured in the event brochure, distributed on the night:

Australian mangoes are an icon, they are full of emotion, wrapped in ritual and tied with memories. Horticulture Innovation Australia Limited, on behalf of the Australian mango industry, is delighted to have the opportunity to showcase mangoes in Korea tonight. Mangoes are grown in the tropical and sub-tropical regions of the Northern Territory, Queensland, New South Wales and Western Australia. They are available from September to April with the peak export season being December and January. Australian mangoes are quick and easy to prepare, bursting with flavour and nutritional goodness. But best of all, Australian mangoes are versatile; delicious as a healthy snack on their own, perfectly paired with chicken or prawns, light summer salads, barbequed, cocktails, smoothies and sweet desserts. We hope you enjoy the opportunity to taste this delicious and healthy product tonight – and please look out for them in your supermarket!
It’s all smiles and happy days as the Korean Government confirmed on 30 December an MRL for the post harvest fungicide Scholar.

With New Year celebrations, comes lots of BBQs and festivities with family and friends, which is why we've seen mangoes featured in many recipes this past week. 
Good Food shared a recipe for barbecue chicken salad with grilled mangoes and Thai dressing, along with recipes for one-bowl meals such as crunchy cauliflower salad with mango lime and jalapeno dressing. A delicious recipe for prawn and mango salad was posted to NewsMail, The Morning Bulletin, The Fraser Coast Chronicle, The Daily Mercury, The Northern Star, The Gladstone Observer and seven more publications in Australian Regional Media. PopSugar also posted a recipe for mimosa using mango puree, whilst one of Australia's top food bloggers, Not Quite Nigella, gave her tips for beautiful party fruit platters with mangoes.
With regards to the industry, ABC Radio's NT Country Hour and online news spoke to grower, Ian Quinn of Tou's Garden, regarding the impact of labour shortages on this season's harvest, whilst News Corp's major titles such as The Herald Sun, The Daily Telegraph, The Gold Coast Bulletin, The Courier Mail and Perth Now shared an article on the positive impact of the new cuts to trade tariffs. 


In social media, the chicken and mango skewer recipe video has now reached over 100,000 people since it was posted just before Christmas, whilst our recent harvest and 'mango memories' tiles have already reached a combined 60,000 people! 
On Instagram, this season's influencer ambassador has just launched a competition for one of her followers to win a tray of mangoes! To enter, they will need to post a mango image, tag @aussiemangoes and @nourish_naturally and use the hashtags #aussiemangoes and #mangoemojiplease. This simple entry mechanic will serve to broaden our community and remind mango lovers that mangoes are still in season in the months to come.
