The Avocado Story
We started importing avocados from Spain in 2019 and have also decided to pursue local avocados in South Africa. We hope and strive to become great avocado player in the market for the future offering our customers a wide range of only the best fresh fruit.
Some nutrition experts call the avocado a super food. This flavourful fruit provides health benefits when you add it to your favourite dishes. The avocado is made up predominantly of the ‘good’ monounsaturated fat which is an essential part of a healthy diet. It has the highest concentration of dietary fibre of any commonly eaten fruit. Because of their bountiful benefits, avocados are regarded as part of the world’s elite group of superfoods – foods packed with high levels of vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants and other phytochemicals.
