The Simply Natural Investments Team was in Anaheim California for the Produce Marketing Association 2014 Convention. The three-day expo was a major meeting ground for the world’s top fruit and vegetable players. The interest in Simply Natural and our Lady Victoria mango was phenomenal, which led to back-to-back meetings over the course of the three days as we met with numerous interested buyers and some of the most innovative companies throughout the supply chain. Simply Natural were asked to represent Panama at this years event, along with a handful of other major suppliers from the country, to showcase Panama’s growth as a major agricultural produce supplier, especially for the North American markets. The response to the Lady Victoria was at times overwhelming and highlighted the demand for organic amazing tasting mangos. This extremely positive feedback and solid expressions of interest in purchasing our mangos from leading retail and wholesale channels in the US, Canada and Europe has meant that we will be hosting a ”buyers tour” in the coming year where we will be showcasing the project to some of the industry leaders.
Furthermore, we were left with no doubts that the demand for mangos, and specifically the Lady Victoria, is huge.
