    Letter to Retailers

    Dear Retailers,

    I know what you are thinking, why bother reading so many newsletters when we have so much work on our hands. I get it, I’ve been there. But hear me out, and I know you won’t regret it as I deeply have.

    First, I want to extend my apologies to the National Mango Board (NMB) for not signing up for the Mango Mover Newsletter catered to retailersAs a result, I have missed out on the amazing information this monthly newsletter has to offer. I want to share my oversight so that I can help all the retailers out there not make the same mistake I did.

    If I had signed up for the Mango Mover, I would have been aware that there is a Mango Mania Display Contest! And that I could win big cash prizes from setting up my beautiful mangos on a catchy display. Well, maybe next year I can jump on that opportunity.

    Don’t miss the chance, like I did, to get promotional ideas for major holidays. I could have moved more mangos during holidays such as Memorial Day and 4th of July; what was I thinking! Not to mention all the tips about handling and merchandising mangos - did you know the NMB offers a Mango Handling and Ripening Protocol to help improve mango quality through better handling at warehouse and the store? This is a great tool that will help you improve mango handling practices that will lead to better quality mangos. 

    I missed all these and much more for not signing up for the Mango Mover, including:

    • Consumer Insights – shares results from research about  mango consumers that help when creating displays and sharing mango information
    • Mango in the Market – highlights mango varieties that are currently in the market so retailers can plan better promotions
    • Plan Ahead Mango Promotions – helps inspire mango promotions for the next 60 days highlighting opportunities for different occasions
    • Mango University – a fun tool to train store-level produce personnel and teach them everything they need to know to ramp up mango sales

    Sign up for the Mango Mover as soon as you can. Don’t do as I did and overlook this remarkable source of information. You will be glad you did!
