Australians can expect to taste the sunshine with fruit hitting supermarket shelves, in abundance, across the country.
National distribution levels are up, with 356,000 trays distributed to market compared to 214,000 at the same time last year - with Aussies indulging in close to 180 million mangoes over the summer*.
“It’s been a great year in terms of the production volume of mangoes. This means Aussies can enjoy the sweet tropical flavour of Australian Mangoes for the rest of summer, and make sure they’re making the most of this prime crop.” said Brett Kelly, CEO of Australian Mangoes.
“As we are seeing such high supply as well as consumer demand for delicious, great value produce, we’re encouraging Australians to make the most of the season and to support Aussie farming families, by finding new and different ways to enjoy the fruit.”
From simple Mango and Strawberry Kebabs, or a new dessert with a nutritious twist – Mango Chia Pudding. There’s so many interesting ways to use the fruit, and now is the time to enjoy them in the sunshine.
The growing conditions over recent months have meant that Australians are getting access to bumper crops at great value. With labour shortages, a lot of rain, and clash of regions, growers are pleading for Aussies to buy up big to support farmers.
Why not try hedgehogging a mango? An easy and fun way to prepare a mango by slicing the mango into 2 cheeks beside the seed, dicing the flesh into a crisscross pattern and then turning outward to devour the delicious and juicy taste of Australian mangoes.
High in nutritional value, easy to prepare and so juicy and delicious, mangoes are a refreshing snack, perfect for desserts and a unique addition to savory dishes.
