MIAMI, FL - As retailers look to meet the steady demand in the avocado category, Desbry® Tropical Avocados has an ample supply of avocados from the Dominican Republic ready for immediate shipping.
"We grow and pack Desbry Tropical Avocados on our sustainable farms and facilities in Florida and the Dominican Republic, depending on the season, and ship throughout North America 365 days a year," said Christopher Gonzalez, Vice President of Sales for WP Produce and nephew of Founder Willy Pardo. "My family has enjoyed Tropical Avocados as part of our meals for generations, and here in Florida, everyone eats them.”
Desbry premium-quality Tropical Avocados are grown and distributed by WP Produce Corporation, and are about three times larger than the Hass variety with a sturdy texture that remains green when ripe, as explained in a press release. Desbry Tropical Avocados are available in 2-count bags and bulk cartons for retailers and foodservice professionals.
"We have maintained a reliable supply for over 40 years, and there has been tremendous growth in consumer interest and sales in recent years,” added Desiree Pardo Morales, Willy Pardo’s daughter, Vice President of WP Produce, and Founder and Chief Executive Officer of WP’s sister company, Tropical Fruit Box. “Our fruit is premium quality, and we always look forward to new retail opportunities, helping chefs incorporate this versatile fruit into their menus, and introducing it to avocado-loving consumers."
Tropical Avocados are perfect for salads, pico de gallo, ceviche, toast, and any fresh, flavorful meal and snack occasion, as the mild, creamy fruit complements many different recipes perfectly. As noted in the release, Tropical Avocados are gaining popularity throughout the United States as retailers expand the avocado category and shoppers and foodservice operators learn more about the special kind of avocado.
With increased consumer demand and expectation for variety in all produce categories, the Tropical Avocado has become a lucrative category for retailers.
