ORLANDO, FL - We here at AndNowUKnow are always excited when retailers go out of their way to spotlight fresh, and Albertsons has consistently uplifted the mango category with innovative promotions and strategies. As a result, the National Mango Board (NMB) recently recognized the company with the 2021 Mango Retailer of Year award. National Director of Produce and Floral Vince Maggio recently accepted the award in Boise, Idaho, on the retailer’s behalf.
“Thank you for our award and for all that you do for Albertsons Companies. The National Mango Board is a phenomenal partner for Albertsons, and we never would have gotten where we are today without your dedication and continued support,” stated Maggio.
