New XL Red Mango PLU Code

    Posted: January 18, 2017

    A new PLU number 3488 has been approved and assigned for red mangos size 7 and larger by the Produce Marketing Association and the International Federation for Produce Standards. PLU code 4959 now denotes red mangos sizes 8 to 10. The new PLU number has been added to the international database and is available for immediate use.

    As retail mango movement grows, more retailers are willing to carry a variety of sizes at the same time. As a result, the NMB Board received a formal request for a new PLU code from multiple retailers and mango shippers. A survey was conducted to ensure widespread retailer and industry support for this change, and based on the data collected, the NMB board members voted to move forward with an application for the new PLU number.
