“Our vertical integration is a key component of our strategy to deliver the best possible product to our customers,” said Tony Godinez – managing partner of Urapa Produce. “It allows us to control every aspect of the supply chain, from the moment our mangos are harvested until they reach our customers, ensuring unparalleled freshness and quality.”

In addition to their focus on supply chain excellence, Urapa Produce is dedicated to offering a variety of mango types to cater to diverse consumer preferences. From the beloved Ataulfo “Honey” Mangos to the vibrant, red Tommy Akins variety and continuing through the season with Hadens, Kents and Keitts, their selection is designed to delight every palate.

As Mexico continues to be a major player in the mango market, Urapa is poised to contribute significantly to the industry’s growth. With their increased volume and focus on quality, they anticipate outperforming their previous seasons as a leading mango importer.
