After months of anticipation, Australian Mangoes can now officially declare the 2020/2021 mango season open.
Australian mangoes are now in full supply, with national dispatch levels increasing from 100,000 trays a week in early September, to the weekly harvest expecting to exceed 400,000 trays by the end of October as the peak of the season commences.
Forecasts predict that Australians will consume close to 200 million mangoes in the warmer seasons, with the tropical fruit selling extremely well in the nation’s supermarkets through to March 2021.
Currently, the vast majority of mangoes are being dispatched from the Northern Territory, but from November onwards, there will be a shift towards Queensland to produce the majority of the tropical yield. With innovative, infrared testing completed on the mangoes by growers across the country before being picked, the taste test results are in and mango flavours are set to be exceptional.

Mango industry benchmarking
As the representative body of the Australian mango industry, Australian Mangoes (AMIA) is committed to the ongoing growth, development and success of the industry. One of its current key areas of focus is to reinvest in benchmarking.
This focus follows on from a pilot benchmarking program that was introduced into the Australian mango industry for the 2010/11 season to assess the distribution, pack out, production, costs, profitability and revenue of a sample group.
