Avocados in Africa
Africa is an Avocado farm lover’s dream: abundant uncultivated arable land, roughly over half the global total; tropical climates that permit long growing seasons; a young labor force; and an expanding population that provides a readily available market for produce consumption.

Africa is the world’s second largest continent and the second most-populous, being behind Asia in both categories. It has a big territory of about 30.3 million km2 including adjacent islands, it covers 6% of earth’s total surface area and 20% of its land area.
It´s important to visit Africa and learn more about our production and market opportunities in a continent that is the fastest growing in the avocado industry

Avocados in Kenya
Kenya's impressive volumetric growth rate per year and access to new markets have helped the country to overtake South Africa as the number one exporter of avocados from Africa. The East African country became the largest exporter of avocados in Africa in 2017, exporting a record volume of 51,507 tons to the world. South Africa, traditionally the lead exporter of the world fruit from the Agriculture-rich continent, relinquished the position and trailed Kenya for the first time ever in history with 43,492 tons.
The EU market is already a mature market for Kenya's avocados and significant growth can only be achieved with the nurturing of these new and strategic emerging markets for Kenyan avocados especially China and Russia. Kenya’s pool of the biggest importers includes the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and more recently, the Russian Federation.
The avocado  future for Kenya indeed looks very bright
