Kingston Fresh has announced that it is due to take delivery of its first new season consignment of Ecuadorean mangoes in South Florida on 13 October.
Company president Ken Nabal said the arrivals over the new few weeks would help stabilise mango supplies. “Although estimates indicate that Ecuador as a country is expected to be off as much as 20-30 per cent in overall mango volume, we will actually be increasing our programme’s imports as newer production comes into play,” he said.
“We are proud of the expansion of our Ecuador programme as it is a critical piece of a quality year-round supplies. Needless to say, we are very excited to get started.”
Kingston has been steadily expanding its imports division in recent years and is aggressively growing its footprint in both Central and South America.
CEO David Kingston reflected: “For over 40 years, our core Brand Promise continues to be a relentless commitment to customer service, product quality and food safety. Expanding our quality product portfolio will better help us deliver on this promise to our customers. We remain steadfast in our expansion plans.”
