Avocados are distinct fruits with high fat content and calories. Subtly flavorful yet buttery, they are amongst the most popular fruits having nutrition profile similar to that of some edible nuts and seeds.
Fairtrasa was the pioneer with the very first fairtrade avocados offered on international markets. As a native to Central America, the avocado has thrived in the subtropical climate and rich soils of Mexico´s volcanic region for thousands of years. These ideal growing conditions make Mexico the world´s leading avocado supplier with the best quality fruit. Fairtrasa sources our avocados directly from small producers in the state of Michoacán as well as the northern regions of Peru. Fairtrasa is helping to decrease the negative impacts of agrochemicals on the environment. Purchasing fairtrade avocados ensures the wellbeing of small growers and gives future generations the chance to continue this tradition.
One serving of avocado contains “good cholesterol” (mono and polyunsaturated fats) in addition to over 20 vitamins and minerals. This natural multi-vitamin is a healthy choice for your body, the planet and small-scale farmer communities.
