Mango Mania

Alphonso mangoesYou’d think that, for all the attention given these orange fruit, the mango was India’s national food. Oh wait – I guess it is!

The mango crop is coming into season, and so everyone is going bonkers over getting the bestest pieces possible. I love the fact that our food service company (Sodhexo, the same company that caters schools, companies, and college campuses all over the world) sent us the following announcement this afternoon (accompanied by the attached picture):

Now is the time when mangoes are in season and, as we all know, the best mangoes you can buy are the Alphonso variety. Currently market rate is around 400 INR a dozen but Sodexo  has managed to secure a deal with a supplier to provide them on site for 125 INR for a half dozen.

Each box is packed with three ripe and three semi ripe fruit and all fruits are guaranteed carbide free (calcium carbide is used by lesser suppliers to speed up the ripening process). Of course, mangoes have many other benefits including being high in iron and fiber. Some studies have also shown mangoes are useful to children who lack concentration in studies as it contains glutamine acid which is good to boost memory and keep cells active.

Sale from 12 noon to 4 pm. in the Atrium.   Please come along and enjoy the fruit of the season .
