It’s a wrap! 2017/18 Season Review

The 2017-2018 season has ended with the largest production in the history of the Australian Mangoes Industry. 10.7 Million trays (7kg equivalent) were sent to market representing a 25% increase in volume over the previous season. Retail prices decreased, but only by 10% leading to a 22% YOY growth in retail value. An excellent result for the industry.
