Germans can’t get enough avocado

Published on Mar 22nd, 2018

Germans are consuming ever more avocados, with volumes doubling over the past five years, from 18,000 tons to almost 36,000 tons. In other European countries, the upturn is even more pronounced, especially in the Scandinavian region. While per capita consumption in Germany is still less than 1kg/year, in Denmark it is about 2.5kg/year. More than 80% of avocados sold in the EU are Hass, with the market share of green varieties continuing to shrink.
