Australian mangoes hit the shelves in the US
Famed for their unique flavor, Australian mangoes are now available in US supermarkets after our Brisbane Perishables team delivered the first ever shipment to the USA.
The Australian Government, the Australian Mango Industry Association and Horticulture Innovation Australia have been working on securing the rights to export mangoes and lychees to the US for almost two years.
As the first shipment of its kind, we had Government officials from both Australia and the US on hand as our team received and loaded 4500kg of mangoes bound for LAX. They were impressed with our Brisbane facility with multiple zones that can be set at independent temperatures and a 73m2 specialised cooler designed to quickly cool down cargo. Two more shipments quickly followed and we are excited to continue this project in the next mango season.
