Fresh Del Monte Produce Offers Kenyan Avocados to Europe; Thierry Montange Comments
EUROPE & AFRICA - Avocado toast isn’t just a trend in the United States, and our European friends are just one other group enjoying the delicious fruit on a regular basis. Fresh Del Monte Produce is aiming to meet that demand for the European market, as its Europe and Africa division recently announced that the provider will now be supplying Kenyan avocados to the country.
“Growing avocados in our own farms in Kenya with the unique expertise of our team there, makes a huge difference to offer the high-quality product the consumer wants,” Thierry Montange, Marketing Director for Del Monte Europe Africa, comments. “As consumption increases in our region, Europeans have become more demanding about the quality of avocados they buy, and this is an opportunity for Del Monte, as a premium fruits producer, to offer the fruits that deliver the nutritional and taste benefits they expect, all year long.”
According to an announcement from the company, Fresh Del Monte has seen a demand for high-quality avocados in the European market, and the Kenyan Hass avocados are sustainable and are beloved for their creamy texture.
In November 2021, Fresh Del Monte’s avocados grown in Kenya were certified by SCS Global Services as being sustainably grown—the company was one of the first to do so in this category.
