Mango Exhibition on Tomorrow

Among local fruits, mango is a popular favourite.

And as part of its ongoing efforts to highlight local foods in Tobago , the THA Division of Food Production, Forestry, and Fisheries will present a Mango Exhibition themed “Celebrate our local fruits”.

The exhibition will begin tomorrow (June 11) at the Botanical Gardens, Scarborough from 10 a.m. And it will continue on Wednesday (June 12), at the Cyd Gray Stadium Car Park, Roxborough from 10 a.m.

Mango has many health benefits including vitamin C and is a major ingredient for many food-based entrepreneurs on the island, who make products like chow, preserves, and ice cream.

During the exhibition, patrons will see mango displays and demonstrations, try various samples, and participate in mango-based trivia. There will also be a mango eating contest.

Anyone seeking more information on the event, contact the Division at 639-2234, extension 3584.
