Avocados have unabashedly taken over the food industry as one of the most consumed fruits on the market. Taste Australia, the national brand representing the Australian horticulture industry to support and drive the demand of fresh produce through engagements in key export markets, launched a Tasty and Nutritious Avocado campaign at Jaya Grocer Starling Mall this week.

Austrade Trade Commissioner, Caitlin Noble said Australian Avocados consistently delivered the best quality as they were air freighted at optimum maturity into Malaysia, ensuring freshness and ripeness. Not only do you get ‘farm to table’ freshness, you are also buying into the country’s very high environmental, food safety and employment requirements. Due to the short distance between Australia and Asian countries, they can deliver the freshest products to us in 48 hours!

According to Ms Noble, Australia was expecting a large Hass Avocado harvest from growing regions in Western and Southern Australia, Victoria and western NSW. Large supplies were also coming out of northern and central Queensland, This continuous growth in production has opened opportunities for increasing supply into Malaysia.

Ms Prabaharan said avocados could also boost the nutrition of other healthy foods, with research showing that adding avocado to a salad can increase your ability to absorb key nutrients in other fresh vegetables such as lycopene from red tomatoes and beta carotene from orange carrots.
