Retail Marketing

The Retail Promotions & Marketing Program is designed to increase presence and sell-through of mangos at retail. The program accomplishes its objectives by educating retailers on mango handling and merchandising practices, support retail promotions for whole and fresh-cut mangos, encourage ripe and ready-to-eat mango programs, gain retail data and consumer insights, motivate sustainability efforts, and sharing the mango nutrition messaging through of Point-of-Sale (POS) materials.
