Appointments to the National Mango Board

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has announced the appointment of six members to serve on the National Mango Board. The appointees will serve three-year terms beginning immediately, through Dec. 31, 2025.

Members appointed or reappointed are:

  • District III Importer: Daniel Ibarra, Sinaloa, Mexico
  • District III Importer: Tom Argyros, Green Valley, Arizona
  • District IV Importer: Mary Velasquez, Edinburg, Texas
  • Foreign Producer: Francisco Javier Villegas Ontiveros, Sinaloa, Mexico
  • Foreign Producer: Victoria Aguirre, Guayaquil, Ecuador
  • Foreign Producer: Edwin Zaparolli, Ciudad de Guatemala, Guatemala

The 18-member board is comprised of eight importers, two domestic producers, one first handler, and seven foreign producers.

Since 1966, Congress has authorized the development of industry-funded research and promotion boards to provide a framework for agricultural industries to pool their resources and combine efforts to develop new markets, strengthen existing markets and conduct important research and promotion activities. The USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service provides oversight of 22 boards, paid for by industry assessments, which helps ensure fiscal accountability and program integrity.
