Goldenberry Farms has been awarded US federal Trademark protection for its Sweet Sugar Mango® mark, a pocket-sized miniature mango with a thin, edible skin. This follows similar protections being granted to the company in various other international markets, including at origin in Colombia.
The miniature mangos with sweet, red flesh and fragrant eating experience have been gaining popularity now for several years with consumers in Canada, Asia, and Europe, and will make a much-anticipated debut in the US Market the second week of April. These small mangos are non-GMO, naturally grown, and have a peak harvest season of April through August. Unlike many other exotic mangos, Sweet Sugar Mangos® do not have a fibrous taste.
These naturally grown “pocket mangos” easily fit in the palm of your hand and are unique due to their ability to be eaten with their skin, making them an ideal treat for kids or anytime snacking,” commented Angela Meyers, spokesperson for Goldenberry Farms. We are very excited to be offering these ultra-sweet miniature mangos to a new audience for the first time. It’s one of the real pleasures of being in the fresh fruit business.”

Goldenberry Farms expects to be able to deliver a limited launch of up to 80,000 cases this first season, with a focus towards produce-oriented grocers and markets, with more robust volumes expected for 2024. Unlike generic mangos, Goldenberry Farms’ Sugar Mangos undergo a proprietary pre-harvest and cultivation method, with an immediate cool chain, and a patented, food-safe wash applied post-harvest to condition the fruit well for travel and the best possible taste and shelf life.
The company has also announced an expansion of its Sugar Mango™ line with other branded offerings, such as Sugar Mango branded juices, fresh-fruit powders, and limited POS merchandising. The company continues to develop proprietary harvest techniques to deliver this unique fruit with the best possible consumer presentation and maximum natural shelf life.
Goldenberry has announced a planned capitalization for Q4, expanding the brand’s farm footprint, the construction of an advanced indoor growing plantation, and a consolidated food safety center in Colombia, with the intention to triple the output of shipments from both the Atlantic and Pacific ports, as well as aerial cargo shipments.
Sweet Sugar Mangos are uniquely grown on the Caribbean Coast, which features a terrain and unique microclimate to produce a (peach sized) miniature-mango. Although the mango can be grown elsewhere, the flavor has not been able to be replicated, nor the fiber-less eating experience, according to the company.
