Everything is better when you smash an avoAvocados Australia is the peak industry body for the Australian avocado industry, representing the interests of 800 avocado growers and the broader supply chain. We work to foster growth and development across the entire supply chain, ensuring our customers receive the best quality Australian avocados at every purchase. By working together, we seek to continually improve the ability of growers to provide a healthy, profitable and safe product for all consumers. Avocados Australia can help you access retail training and display materials.
Australia has a long-established, experienced avocado industry. The country currently produces more than 60,000 tonnes of avocados annually, with production expected to increase to 100,000 tonnes in coming years. This means the high-quality Australian avocados currently enjoyed by our domestic customers will increasingly be available in a range of Asian countries.
In Australia, our professional growers are producing healthy and safe, high-quality Hass variety avocados throughout the year from our growing regions spread from the north of the country to the south, from the west to the east. Our peak production period is from April to December for Hass avocados; the Shepard variety is available from February to April.
In both production and exports, Australia is currently a small player in the world avocado market. On-going activity is underway targeting Australia’s growth in export markets with Malaysia and Singapore currently Australia’s main avocado export markets.
The industry’s goal is to provide consistently high quality, nutritious, healthy and safe Australian avocados both domestically and internationally. Australia is not a provider of bulk product, focussing instead on quality, safety, nutrition and ensuring a positive experience of our end consumers.
