The board's primary goal is to raise awareness and drive the consumption of fresh mangos in the United States while educating consumers about the culture, flavor, and nutritional benefits of this versatile superfruit. The board also serves as a unifying force within the mango industry.

The National Mango Board, in collaboration with the USDA, is dedicated to fostering diversity within the mango community, including growers, importers, shippers, distributors, marketers, and partners. In October 2021, the National Mango Board introduced a brand refresh aimed at highlighting mango's superfruit benefits and expanding its reach to a more diverse audience. The board encourages industry members to apply without regard to race, color, national origin, sex, age, disability, protected genetic information, or reprisal.
