There is still demand for avocados. It seems not to have been affected by the coronavirus outbreak. This is, according to Dave Sijogo. He is a sales manager at the Dutch company, Mission Produce Europe. "Supermarkets are experiencing growth. They have to provide people with enough food. That increased distribution ensures products like avocados remain on the shelves."
"There were occasional delays in recent months. That was due to the governmental regulations in Peru, South Africa, and Kenya. Despite these, large volumes are expected this summer. These will come from Peru, Kenya, and Colombia. Restaurants and terraces are gradually reopening in Europe. It is expected that the afflicted wholesalers will, again, slowly be able to take on some of these volumes."
"The number of people who will travel this summer is also expected to be low. So, it is realistic that people will take local holidays. They will, therefore, spend more time on fresh, healthy food. Whether that be at home or in the controlled environment of a terrace or restaurant", concludes Dave.
