The AVOCO advantage
15 July 2015

As a grower, what’s most important to you and your orchard business?

For most of you, strong Orchard Gate Returns will rank highly. For others, a secure and sustainable industry for the future will be just as critical.

The great news is that by supplying AVOCO – you can have both.

Since our export group formed, more than 700 growers have signed up to supply AVOCO with the knowledge and satisfaction that they’re supporting a model that has the best interests of both the grower and industry at heart.

It helps that we’re grower-led – we already understand how most growers tick. It also helps that we deliver what we say we will.

In 2011-12, we listened to growers when they said they wanted more collaboration between exporters and less volatile returns at the orchard gate. It was out of these conversations that AVOCO was born.

A partnership between two of New Zealand’s most experienced exporters, Southern Produce and Primor, AVOCO united the avocado industry and lifted its profile on the global stage.

With our AVANZA partner, we built relationships in exciting new Asian markets and developed a platform for future growth.

Our expert marketing teams have positioned AVANZA branded avocados as a premium product which is proving popular with consumers across Asia. As their diets become more Westernised and we achieve access to even more markets, this demand is only set to increase – good news for AVOCO growers and the industry as a whole.

Our global approach gives us greater influence within the Australian market, which ultimately means more dollars in grower pockets. Australia remains the highest paying market in the world and our industry’s lifeblood so it’s one we’re committed to nurturing.  AVOCO’s collaborative model ensures Australia will always be well looked after.

Last season’s export volume was a record-breaker for the industry and a real test for AVOCO, but with OGRs in the mid-teens, we passed with flying colours.

Now, with another season fast approaching, we want even more growers to join us.

By supplying AVOCO, you’re making a commitment to doing the best for the New Zealand avocado industry. We are 100% focused on you, which means you’ll feel informed and part of a larger movement to take our industry to Australia and the world.

AVOCO’s pool system means that as a grower, you’ll always be treated equally and fairly. As well as strong Orchard Gate Returns, you’ll also get access to expert technical advice, market updates and the shared knowledge of growers like you who’ve “been there, done that.”

AVOCO has achieved something special – for the fortunes of its growers as well as the industry’s future.

Talk to us about how you can enjoy the best of both worlds too.
