OXNARD, CA - Now’s the time to gear up those retail mango displays, says Freska Produce, in time for everything from Cinco de Mayo to Mother’s Day.

Gary Clevenger, Managing Principal, Freska Produce“There should be ample volumes from Mexico for both Cinco de Mayo and Mother's Day holidays,” Managing Principal Gary Clevenger shares. “Retailers should definitely look to promote the category during this period.”

As Cinco fast approaches, Freska faves include a mango salsa, ideal for serving with grilled pork, fish, or poultry. Find the recipe by clicking here.

As for me? I personally found the avocado filled with mango crab inspiring for the coming May festivities.

In addition to idea inspiration for consumers, Freska has expanded capacity to further meet retail partners’ needs. As we reported previously, a consistent uptick in volumes inspired the company to double its cooling capacity in Nogales, Arizona facility.
