We are ready

New Zealand is ready and able to host an international avocado congress, with grower tours in both New Zealand and Australia.

New Zealand is ready to champion the global avocado industry. The world’s media would see initiatives to support the communities, environment and economies impacted by growing avocados. We would demonstrate our growing practices, food safety and quality systems, and ethical treatment of growers and communities that live in our avocado growing regions.

New Zealand’s amazing unspoiled landscapes, reputation for openness, fairness and equality, and a commitment to care for the land and people, provides an ideal environment for the global avocado industry to share its values with consumers and media around the world.
