Kingston Fresh Ecuadorian Mango Imports Arrive in Florida Next Week
- by Jordan Okumura
POMPANO BEACH, FL – Kingston Fresh's Ecuadorian mango crop is on its way to the United States and shipments are expected to make landfall in South Florida the week of October 13th. Kingston’s President, Ken Nabal, is looking forward to enjoying the dividends of his company's recent expansion of its Ecuadorian mango program.
“Ecuador fruit arriving into the market over the next few weeks will be timely to stabilize overall mango supplies,” he explained. “Although estimates indicate that Ecuador as a country is expected to be off as much as 20-30% in overall mango volume, Kingston’s growers will actually be increasing our program’s imports as newer production comes into play. We are proud of the expansion of our Ecuador program as it is a critical piece of a quality year round program. 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,” Kingston's CEO David O. Kingston elaborated. “For over 40 years at Kingston, 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.”
Considering the success Kingston has enjoyed in recent years, one could hardly fault David for this optimistic outlook.
Congratulations on an excellent start to the Fall season, Kingston Fresh!
