USDA sets referendum dates for Mango Research and Promotion Program

The US Departmentof Agriculture Agricultural Marketing Service ((USDA AMS) has announced that, as required by statute, it will conduct a referendum for eligible first handlers and importers of mangos to vote on whether to continue the Mango Promotion, Research and Information Order and whether to continue provisions that include frozen mangos. The referendum will be held Sept. 21 - Oct. 9, 2020.

The USDA will determine the results of the two referendum questions separately. USDA will continue the mango program if continuance is favored by a majority of first handlers and importers voting in the referendum. In addition, USDA will retain the provisions of the order that added frozen mangos to the program and increased the size of the board if favored by a majority of fresh first handlers and importers and frozen importers, or if favored by a majority of frozen importers, voting in the referendum.
