It’s easy to see why mangos are considered one of the most popular fruits in the world. Their sweet
yet exotic flavor lends itself to a variety of sweet and savory applications that are right in line with
today’s top menu trends, including global flavors, and plant-forward cooking.
Adding global flavors to the menu can seem intimidating, but with 53% of operators reporting
that consumers are asking them for global offerings, this is a trend that is worth capitalizing on.(1)
Incorporating a familiar ingredient into a global dish is a simple way to make the dish feel more
approachable both for the operator and consumer.
The appeal of mango lies in its versatility and ability to complement a wide variety of flavors and
cuisine types. Take for example Yam Som-O, a dish that has been part of Thai culture for hundreds
of years. Adding mango to this traditional pomelo salad adds a boost of color and flavor, while
maintaining its cultural integrity. Discover more ways to incorporate global offerings with the
