Mexico consolidates position as world’s largest avocado exporter

Wed 07/06/2023 by Richard Wilkinson

Mexico has retained the title of the world’s leading avocado exporter, while the US is the leading importer. This is the finding of a recent Rabobank study, which  reports that Mexico currently accounts for 30% of global avocado production, thanks to a 6% increase over the past decade. Mexico’s climate allows for year-round production, with seasonal lows in June and July. This decline in supply coincides with the peak production periods of the US and Peru, ensuring a consistent avocado supply to the US market.
