Fresh Avocados Product Overview
Our avocados are of the HASS variety, available throughout the year in different volumes.
Our fields are distributed at different heights which allow us to have a harvest throughout the year, always guaranteeing the best quality and size. The seasons of top production are from August to February (depending on the year weather conditions).
Michoacán has unique weather conditions, along with fields of fertile lands.The Region has become the largest producer in Latin America and is one of the biggest exporters in the world. The key to becoming the world’s capital for avocado is the combination of several factors:
- Ideal weather year-round
- Equitable rainfall
- Top Soil conditions
- Strategic Geographic Location
- Proximity to mayor Seaports and Airports
Some of these conditions allow Michoacán to be the only place where avocado has up to 4 blooms per year, when the rest of the regions of the world that produce avocados has up to 2 per year.
Our avocados are packed in Michoacán Mexico in newly built facilities. Our growers offer the best quality product available from Michoacán.
Like any perishable product, every detail is extremely important to ensure that our products will reach the shelves around the world as if it has been harvested a few miles away.

The optimal relative humidity and temperature in which avocados should be maintained during the post-packing storage stages and prior to transport with Temperatures from 3 ° C to 5ºC , Relative humidity from 85% to 90%. To preserve the quality of the product, we strive to keep the avocado away from any source of excessive humidity as this will cause the presence of fungi. Avocados must not be handled below 3 ° C as they are sensitive to cold which causes damage (brown color of the pulp and loss of characteristic flavor) that will appear once the avocados have fully ripened. Avocado is sensitive to ethylene, so we keep it away from products with a high production of this gas, such as bananas, apples, kiwis, etc.
