Grower Market Tour 2016

Join us for the 2016 Grower Market Tour!

The Australian Mango Industry is hosting the 2016 Grower Market Tour in Sydney from Friday 2 to Monday 5 December 2016.

The tour now in its third year is extremely popular with growers. The three-day event covering all aspects of the supply chain, is full of learnings, rich with insights, and provides a host of networking opportunities. It gives growers a deeper appreciation of what it takes to successfully market mangoes and to keep the “wheel of velocity and momentum” turning to the beat of the crop.  

The tour provides an opportunity for you to see and hear things you wouldn’t normally be exposed to; to go behind doors you wouldn’t ordinarily walk through and to share in conversations you wouldn’t otherwise have. 

You’ll visit the Sydney markets, and meet with wholesalers and exporters, be guided through the distribution centres of major retailers, ‘shop’ for mangoes across the full range of retail formats including ALDI, Coles, Costco, Green Grocers, Harris Farm Markets, IGA, and Woolworths, and experience all the energy and excitement of the Mango Mess-tival.

Mess-tival is the industry’s signature event, held every year on the first Sunday in summer on Australia’s iconic Bondi Beach. This year we’re celebrating Mess-tival’s 5th birthday and it promises to be a great party! You’ll be amazed as thousands of Aussies flock to Bondi with togs and towels, eagerly anticipating their first ‘official’ taste of summer with deliciously, sweet & juicy Australian Mangoes.

Register now for a seat on the bus. Call Treena Welch, AMIA Marketing Manager, on 0417 001253.
