Since the doors to the USA market opened for Colombian avocado in 2017, we have emerged as the single largest exporter into the country!
Per the Volume Data and Projections by the Hass Avocado Board, we have exported more Colombian grown Hass avocado into the USA than all other suppliers of avocado combined.
Farming in Colombia
We saw great potential to grow Hass avocados in South America and established a hub in Colombia early on. Due to the moderate humidity, year round warm temperatures and nutrient rich farmland, Colombia provides an exemplary opportunity to cultivate exceptional fresh fruit.
As Hass avocado in Colombia is produced for 52-weeks of the year, we are able to provide a consistently high quality product for 12 month supply or complement other countries of origin.
Exceptional quality fruit
We’re ensuring that each individual fruit meets the highest quality specifications before leaving the country. Not only surpassing all other suppliers on Colombian Hass into the USA, we have also seen the quality of our South American grown fresh produce speak for itself.
Our Commercial Director Steve says:
“Colombian Hass avocado production is still relatively new but the standards being achieved on farm are truly world class. We see great potential in the country to upscale our volume and to add value into the global supply chain. The arrivals into the USA have been extremely well received with good arrival inspections. The expansion into the North American market complements our existing well established export routes into Europe which allows us to deliver a tailored solution to our partners in both regions.”
