National Mango Board Reports Mangos in Good Supply for Spring and Summer Menus
ORLANDO, FL - The light at the end of the tunnel is making its way into view as the country begins to re-open, signaling good news for foodservice providers as they prep to welcome diners back. As consumers resume dining out, the National Mango Board (NMB) has announced that there will be good volumes of fresh mangos just in time to grace summer menus.
“More than 70 percent of the total fresh mango volume arriving in the United States each year occurs in the spring and summer, making for an ideal time to showcase mango on food and beverage menus,” said Marketing Specialist Suwann Frison.
This season will bring a plethora of mango varieties to suit all needs and palates. According to a press release, there will be supplies of Honey (Ataulfo), Francis, Haden, and Tommy Atkins varieties making their way to the U.S., giving operators plenty of mangos to choose from and highlight in their recipes.
For foodservice and restaurant operators looking for inspiration, NMB encourages the perusal of its collection of Mango Chef Creations, including summery Vegetarian Mango Spring Rolls with Mango Nuoc Cham Dipping Sauce and a Seared Ahi Tuna Sandwich with Mango Slaw and Mango Jalapeño Jam.
As the weather warms up, I can’t wait to check out my local restaurants with the hope of indulging in delicious mango-inspired recipes like these—and I’m sure other consumers out there are waiting to do the same.
