“At the moment, the market for green skin and Hass avocados is good,” says Elena Rogojnikova, of Hagé International (Barendrecht, The Netherlands). “The volumes of Israel have decreased due to the end of the season, but the sales of avocados of the Fuerte variety from Peru and South Africa are going very well with high prices of 9 to 9.50 euros.”
The first Hass avocados from Peru and South Africa are expected for the first week of April. “After the huge quantities of Hass avocados from Peru and South Africa last year, it is expected that 30% less Hass avocados will arrive from South Africa, and Peru plans to send its usual volume,” says the importer.
“The first containers with large volumes of avocados from the ZZ2 company in South Africa were unloaded in the weeks 11 and 12. Therefore, South Africa started earlier than normal this year, the contents of the containers had already been fully sold even before The quality of this superior brand is already excellent at the beginning of the season, “concludes Elena.
