National Mango Board seeks nominees

The National Mango Board is seeking nominations for seven open board member positions. The board’s mission is to increase awareness and consumption of fresh mangos in the United States and to inspire and educate consumers about the culture, flavor and nutrition of the versatile superfruit while bringing the mango industry together.

Mango industry members are encouraged to complete a nomination application for the following available seats, with a final deadline to submit by Feb. 25:

  • Three Foreign Producers
  • Two District III Importers
  • One District IV Importer
  • One First Handler

The National Mango Board consists of 18 total members in the fresh mango industry, including importers, domestic producers, foreign producers and a first handler. Board members, who are appointed to three-year terms, work closely with the staff at the National Mango Board to carry out marketing, research and industry relations programs to benefit the mango industry.

Applications are available at www.Mango.org/Nominations or by contacting the National Mango Board Executive Director Manuel Michel or Operations Manager Gabi Ward. Final decisions on all board member appointments are made by the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture.

USDA and the National Mango Board seek diversity in the unique mango community of growers, importers, shippers, distributors, marketers, partners and more. In October 2021, the National Mango Board unveiled a brand refresh designed to elevate mango’s superfruit benefits and reach a more diverse audience. The National Mango Board encourages industry members without regard to race, color, national origin, sex, age, disability, protected genetic information, or reprisal.
