The National Mango Board is inviting growers, packers, handlers and importers to the first mango food safety conference.
The Orlando, Fla.-based board plans the event March 6 at the McAllen Convention Center in McAllen, Texas, according to a news release.
Speakers plan to discuss food safety guidelines and standards, high-risk areas and suggested solutions and how food safety issues affect the food supply chain.
“This conference provides an opportunity for mango industry members to learn and network, all while gaining useful and applicable tools and resources to help protect the health and safety of consumers,” William Watson, the board’s executive director, said in the release.
