What our growers have to say about the mango conference:


“Attending the last two mango conferences I felt we were finally becoming a united industry and achieved many of our objectives. If you want to participate and have a say in the future and direction of your industry. You should attend the 11th Australian Mango Conference.”

President of NTMIA - Leo Skliros.

Marketing   


PR

The press office has seen another week of recipe coverage, with Body & Soul's recipes for mango, coconut and oat tart and salmon tacos with avocado and mango salsa, and Over Sixty's recipe for prawn and macadamia salad by Lyndey Milan. 
Meanwhile, the media has focused on women in the mango industry, as Fairfax Agricultural Media published a story across all their titles, mentioning Jessica Fealy's nomination for Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation (RIRDC) Rural Women's Award. Similarly, ABC Radio and Fairfax Agricultural Media both discussed Marie Piccone's recognition in the Business Women's Hall of Fame. 

SOCIAL

In social media, the Instagram page is showing no signs of slowing down, with two competitions contributing to a huge upswing in follower numbers. 
 
Indeed, influencers @afruityfitlife and @steph182x both ran competitions, encouraging their community to tag a friend and follow our page in an effort to win a free tray of delicious mangoes, all-the-while letting everyone know that mangoes are still in season! The two competition posts have seen a total of 150 comments and 2,109 likes! 
 
This activity has helped drive over 400 new followers to the page in just under one week, helping to expand our community and letting mango lovers around Australia know that mangoes are still in season and available in stores!
