Established in 2015 and concluded in 2017, this project was responsible for delivering ongoing training to key quality staff throughout the mango supply chain, from growers to retailers. Its end goal was ensuring the ongoing supply of consistent-quality mangoes that meet or exceed consumer expectations.

Project activities included providing growers and retailers with awareness of and access to calibrated hand-held near-infrared (NIR) technology (Felix 750 Produce Quality Meters) for assessing dry matter content of ripening fruit.

During the 2017/18 season, this project funded staff from the Australian Mango Industry Association to assist growers in determining the maturity of fruit prior to picking, using near-infrared technology in the form of Felix 750 Produce Quality Meters. Growers were able to book an on-farm visit, learn about the maturity assessment visits, or access calibration services for their own Felix metres by contacting AMIA during the season.

Mango Strategic Investment Plan 2017-2021

Mango SIP at a glance

Mango SIP

The Mango Strategic Investment Plan (SIP) will help guide Hort Innovation’s oversight and management of investment programs for the mango industry over the next five years. It lays the foundation for decision-making in levy investments and represents the balanced interests of the industry. The very important function of the SIP is to ensure levy investment decisions align with industry priorities.

The SIP was developed through a process of consultation, drafting, validation, stakeholder feedback as well as final approval by Hort Innovation’s Board. The process involved consultation meetings (detailed below) and online validation, giving mango growers opportunity to provide input and feedback.

If you have any questions about the development process of the SIP, please contact Hort Innovation's Mango Relationship Manager, Corrine Jasper, by phone on 07 3198 6759 or by email.
