This season industry is continuing to focus on quality. It is important that we give consumers that perfect tasting mango, from first bite, to continue to please our buyers and sell your product!
This season’s objective reporting system has already commenced. In the past two seasons we have used refractometers to measure brix when the mango is at the eating ripe stage. This season we are transitioning to using F-750 Produce Quality Meters, which uses near-infrared technology (NIR) technology, to measure dry matter at any stage of ripeness.
Objective Reporting is a key component of the mango industries program to closely align the eating quality of Australian mangoes with consumer’s expectations.
This season’s objective reporting has commenced and we have reinforced the training and audit process, as outlined in the following article.
