Ledger, S.N. and Campbell, T.P. and Holmes, R.J. and Kernot, I.I. and Hofman, P.J. (2003) Improving Knowledge and Practices in Mango Supply Chains. In: Australasian Postharvest Horticulture Conference, 1-3 October 2003, Carlton Crest Hotel, Brisbane.
Mangoes consigned to domestic markets suffered from fruit quality problems from 1997 to 2000. A high incidence of disease breakdown and green-ripe fruit resulted in loss of confidence by marketers, and reduced profits for everyone from grower to retailer. The ‘Better Mangoes’ project was initiated to identify where, and why quality was being lost, and to use this information to improve the knowledge and practices of supply chain businesses.
