CHICAGO, IL - It’s not often that we can stake our name to an industry first, but Hazel Technologies continues to break barriers in fresh produce. The innovative company has once again brought a first to the industry, announcing the launch of its virtual Mango Quality Summit. The event will take place on Wednesday, November 25, featuring keynote speakers from across the mango industry ahead of the ’20-’21 Southern Hemisphere mango season.
“Hazel Tech has dedicated extensive research and investment to understand the most urgent post-harvest management problems in the tropical fruit and particularly the fresh mango category and deliver cutting-edge solutions. Hazel is excited to participate in and sponsor this event” said Mario Cervantes, Senior Business Development Manager at Hazel Technologies.
Speakers will include:

- Renzo Muro, CEO of Fundo Los Paltos, a leading mango grower and exporter in Peru
- Mario Cervantes, Senior Business Development Manager at Hazel Technologies, Inc.
As stated in a press release, the keynote speeches will highlight the latest research on fresh mango post-harvest quality, including maintaining quality in different varieties of mango, preventing development of fungus such as anthracnose, and ensuring optimum quality during long-distance transit.
“This year has been an unprecedented year for the mango industry and tropical fruit industry in general, across Mexico, Peru, Ecuador, and the rest of the Americas,” commented Osuna-García. “I am excited to share our latest mango quality research developments with the tropical fruit industry in order to ensure a successful future season.”
Muro also commented on the event, bringing Fundo Los Paltos’ prowess in managing over 700 acres of mangos in the San Lorenzo production area of Piura on the coast of Northern Peru.
“Fundo Los Paltos is always seeking to be at the frontier of fruit quality innovation, which is why we are excited to participate in the Mango Quality Summit,” Muro said.
