The Avolution, the “largest” exporter of Australian Hass avocados, has announced its premium quality Hass avocados are heading to the Indian market. This marks a significant milestone for the Australian avocado industry in the expansion of its exports to one of the world’s largest consumer markets.
The Avolution CEO Antony Allen says, “India is a fast-growing market for avocados and just beginning its love affair with avocados, and we are thrilled to bring our premium quality Hass avocados to Indian consumers. We undertook an extensive market investigation tour in January 2023 to, Bangalore, Mumbai, and Delhi to assess the market and retail situation in preparation for the opening of the Indian market for us.”
“This new market access is a great opportunity for us to expand our export business and strengthen our relationship with Indian consumers, and we look forward to building a long-lasting relationship with our Indian customers,” Mr Allen said.
He added, “The Avolution growers have been planting avocado trees to increase volumes, and we are confident that our production will meet the growing demand in India. We have seen great success in our main export markets, including Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia, and we are excited to bring the same quality avocados to India.”
The Avolution Hass avocados are renowned for their superior taste, texture, nutritional value and packed with health benefits.
“To ensure that Indian consumers receive only the freshest, highest-quality avocados, The Avolution has established a robust supply chain and quality control processes. The avocados will be flown and shipped by sea to India via a specialised cold chain to ensure that they reach consumers in optimal condition.”
The Australian avocado industry’s entry into the Indian market is expected to create significant business opportunities for both countries. “It will also provide a boost to the Australian economy by creating new jobs and generating revenue with a potential market value of approximately $30 million,” according to the company.
“We believe that this launch will open up new opportunities for Australian avocado growers and benefit both countries’ economies. As we continue to expand our global footprint, we remain committed to providing our customers with the best produce possible and building a sustainable and resilient food system.
“The Avolution would like to thank Prime Minister Albanese, Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry Murray Watt, and his Departmental personnel who have worked hard with their Indian colleagues to achieve this historic market access for our Hass avocados,” Mr Allen said.
