DALLAS, TX - There’s nothing like a new partnership to get the industry’s blood pumping on this fine Monday. This time around it’s Avocados From Mexico (AFM) and Brighter Bites announcing the renewal of their powerhouse partnership. With AFM adding its avocado prowess to Brighter Bites’ star-studded partners list, the two are only furthering their mission of bring avocados and nutrition education materials to thousands of families across Texas, New York, Maryland, and Florida.
“We are excited to partner with Brighter Bites again this year, providing healthy fruits and vegetables to students across the country for the third consecutive year,” said Alvaro Luque, CEO and President of Avocados From Mexico. “We understand the challenges many families face to get proper nutrition, which is why our AFM employees are grateful for the chance to actively participate in making a difference, especially in our local community.”
Starting this month, AFM will sponsor fresh deliveries of avocados and nutrition education materials to schools across the nation, supporting more than 18,000 families who participate in Brighter Bites, according to a press release.

The partnership also builds on the AFM Life company platform, which is dedicated to preserving the wellbeing of AFM’s employees, their families, and the greater neighboring community.
“Partnering with Brighter Bites allows AFM to fulfill our commitment to doing good, spreading health and wellness in the community, and educating our neighbors on the great benefits of the delicious, always-in-season avocado,” said Stephanie Bazan, Vice President of Trade and Promotion for Avocados From Mexico. “Education is a key pillar for us so we’re excited about the development of our co-branded nutrition education materials for families, offering tips on ripening and healthy recipes the whole family can enjoy along with the donated avocados.”
