THE NATIONAL MANGO BOARD USES A STRATEGIC PLAN, DEVELOPED BY THE BOARD MEMBERS, TO ENSURE THE BEST INTERESTS OF THE MANGO INDUSTRY ARE BEING SERVED AND THE FUNDS ARE BEING INVESTED WISELY.
The following priorities provide the framework for the NMB’s programs from 2018 to 2020. The strategic plan is revisited every three years to make sure the organization is still working toward the right goals. Each year, specific marketing, communications, research and industry relations projects are developed to work toward these key objectives.
