Why is Mexico still the largest avocado producer in the world?

Mexico is at the forefront of avocado production and export worldwide. Suffice it to say that it is estimated that 1 in 3 avocados that are consumed in the world are produced in our country, exporting mainly to the United States, France, Japan, Canada and China.

The reason for this privileged place can be found in the quality with which it is produced in Mexican lands, cradle of this delicious delicacy. The climate and altitudes are conducive to its cultivation and allow to acquire the "green gold", characteristics that in other places or different climates do not manage to prosper.

Although approximately 60 countries in the world are producers of about 400 varieties of avocado, in Mexico the three varieties with the highest demand from consumers are produced: Hass, Criollo and fuerte, in addition to the volume of national production contributes 30% of the world harvest.

To cite an example of the production capacity of our country, in 2017 the production reached 1,997,629 tons, of which 95,000 tons were destined for the neighboring country to the north, returning to place the avocado as the preferred in the preparation of snacks during the Super Bowl.

On the economic side, the export of avocado to 2016 was approximately 1740 million dollars, which notes the importance of this product in the economy of our country. Internally, Michoacán is the producer of four-fifths of all Mexican avocado.

The outlook for the Mexican avocado sector shows great opportunities, since in addition to the existing free trade agreements the avocado, it is being given new uses in businesses such as naturopathic medicine or personal care, due to its multiple properties that make it a multifaceted fruit.

Another important aspect to consider is the trend towards organic, mainly in the markets of Asia and the European Union, which will allow access to new commercial opportunities.
