AUSTRALIA: WOOLWORTH'S MANGO ADVERTISEMENT ....

AUSTRALIAN MANGO GROWERS URGED TO HOLD OFF UNTIL AFTER CHRISTMAS

Forecast for better mango prices for growers after Christmas






Gascoyne mango growers are being cautioned to not send fruit too early to market, especially if the quality is not excellent.

Traditionally the bulk of mangoes from Carnarvon start reaching the Perth markets in mid-January.

Barry Doran from Mercer Mooney says he's heard some growers are planning to send fruit earlier, and he doesn't think it's a good idea.


"I think the challenge they're (mango growers) going to face this year is there's a lot of honey gold and calypso mangoes in the markets leading up to Christmas," he said.




"If it's not conditioned properly and not ripe and ready to go by Christmas week they'll find it very hard to find a market for it."

LOOKS LIKE A VERY MANGO CHRISTMAS IN AUSTRALIA ....

Plenty of mangoes for Christmas

By Miriam Hall

Tuesday, 13/12/2011







One of Australia's biggest mango producers says shoppers will be paying less for the fruit this Christmas.

Last year, poor weather meant there was an undersupply, pushing the retail price up.

But this year there are more mangoes available on the fresh fruit market.




Maree Piccone grows mangoes in Queensland and the Northern Territory.



She says the industry needs to help mitigate extreme price fluctuations.

"Some of the margins that are put onto the fruit or the returns to the growers are probably higher than we would necessarily want to get consumers to buy lots of them. "And vice versa.

Often the very low prices that we receive are not necessarily passed onto the consumer.

"So I'd like that to be evened out."

You're SO close to giving $100,000 in total donations! 


Keep going! $1 Saves 25lbs of Fresh Produce from Landfills


Every day, 1200 semis arrive in Nogales, Arizona. 
They're stocked with produce from Mexico that's being auctioned for distribution in the US.  Anything that doesn't sell that day - USDA inspected tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, peppers, melons, cantaloupes, beans, zucchini, eggplants, corn and watermelons - is dumped into a landfill to rot.  That is, until today's group gets involved. 

They've negotiated to get to the food before it ends up in the garbage. 

$1 can save 25lbs of this produce to be redirected to soup kitchens and food banks.

THE AMAZING WORK BEING DONE AT OXITEC IN ERRADICATING MANGO PESTS AMONG OTHERS ...

Our business

Oxitec is a pioneer in controlling insects that spread disease and damage crops


Through world class science we are playing our part in tackling the major global challenges of keeping people healthy and increasing food production. And we are doing so in a way that is sustainable, environmentally friendly and cost effective.


Insects pose a major threat to man. Many diseases are spread by insects such as mosquitoes that transmit malaria, dengue fever and yellow fever. In agriculture, insects cause damage to crop yields and quality and cause significant financial loss.



Despite technical advances over the last 50 years, the danger is actually on the increase. 

Resistance to insecticides is growing and for some diseases (dengue fever, for example) there is neither medication nor vaccine. There is an urgent need for a new approach to complement the best existing practice.



We have developed technology arising from Oxford University to offer a new solution. 

Our approach is to breed an…

The Global Mango Economy has been negligent.




Blame it on lack of coordination by growers associations.


Perhaps ignorance was part of the problem.






For far too long the core problem and single barrier to market access of both aspiring countries and flavorful varities of mangoes has been the phytosanitary component.






At the first GLOBAL MANGO CONFERENCE held in La Quinta, California in 2000, the IMO brought this issue to the forefront by emphasizing the COMMON FUND FOR COMMODITIES and the support that this sub group of the United Nations provides for the GLOBAL AGRICULTURAL ECONOMY.




The USA consumer is being cheated and the Mango industry is losing out on potential growth by ignoring the single most important issue facing the mango industry.




At this juncture, over thirty million dollars has been squandered by the National Mango Board (NMB) on trivial persuits…
