(Jan. 17) The National Mango Board’s first official outreach meeting of the year is scheduled for Feb. 6 in Miami.

The Orlando-based mango promotion board has nine other outreach meetings tentatively scheduled for both national and international locations throughout the year.

Mango board staff members use the meetings to present their activities, mostly marketing and research projects, to mango industry leaders and members.

“Our mission is to increase mango consumption in the U.S., and we show the industry what the mango board does on their behalf,” said Marilda Peele, industry relations specialist for the National Mango Board.

The meeting is scheduled to last one hour and will be followed by lunch. Anyone interested in attending can contact the National Mango Board by Jan. 29 at (877) 626-4671.
