Avocado Earns Its Place as a Consumer Favorite

Avocado consumption in the United States showed an overall increasing trend between 1985 and 2022, from 198 million to 1,224 million kilograms. Hispanic families consume them in sauces, with just a little salt and lime, salads, and especially guacamole.

In the first quarter of 2021, the United States imported 742 million pounds of avocado, while this 2023 has imported 751 million pounds, representing an increase of 1.2%, especially in March.

Ninety-four percent of this fruit comes from Mexico and Peru, with 83% and 11% of the market share, respectively.

Mexico maintains year-round production, and it is thanks to this that consumers can enjoy avocados all year round, no matter what time of year it is.
