The National Mango Board will be awarding gift cards to the first 100 people nominated as “Retail Super Fruit Super Heroes.”
The organization is asking produce retail leaders to submit the names of team members “who have gone above and beyond the normal expectations” in their work as the coronavirus pandemic has unfolded.
“To say the least, these have been trying times,” Tammy Wiard, retail marketing manager for NMB, said in a news release. “As we work to determine the new normal, the National Mango Board wants to recognize the extraordinary efforts that retailers have made to keep the food chain intact, and more specifically front-line retail produce employees.
“We want to thank our retail partners for their continued efforts,” Wiard said. “The mango industry continues to thrive, even during these uncertain times. We look forward to great mango volume during the summer months and consistent demand driven by consumers’ heightened focus on health and nutrition.”
