Avocados From Mexico included in Best Workplaces for Innovators list

Avocados From Mexico has been named to Fast Company's second annual Best Workplaces for Innovators list, which honors businesses and organizations worldwide that demonstrate a deep commitment to encouraging innovation at all levels and where innovation is a key part of the culture.

This year's list highlights workplaces that attract and retain the best talent by creating environments where employees are empowered and have an opportunity to thrive by doing things differently through innovation.

"Since we launched the company seven years ago, we have been committed to doing things differently through innovation that goes beyond the produce aisle," said Alvaro Luque, CEO of Avocados From Mexico. "We've taken a single SKU without packaging and created a highly visible brand."

"This recognition honors our high-achieving corporate culture and shines a light on how innovation has truly been the driving force of our organization as we continue to build our brand, drive demand and maintain category leadership as the number one provider of avocados in the U.S.," stated Luque.

The impressive market penetration of Avocados From Mexico in the U.S. can be attributed to innovations driven by this small, healthy super-fruit that, in only a few years, has become an American obsession. Many of its breakthrough innovations have been "industry firsts," including being the first fresh produce brand to have Big Game TV ads, the first in its category to launch a chatbot to educate consumers on avocados, as well being behind the world's first polished-casual avocado-only restaurant through its culinary expertise and innovation.

Over the years, AFM has successfully delivered creative ways to not only fuel America's appetite for healthy eating, but has also significantly contributed to the economy by way of U.S. imports of Mexican Hass avocados, adding $5.5 billion to the U.S. economy in 2017. More than 2.5 billion pounds of avocados are consumed yearly in the U.S., and 8 out of 10 avocados are from Mexico.

"As much of the world recovers from health, economic, and social crises, we need innovation more than ever," says Stephanie Mehta, editor-in-chief of Fast Company. "This new list of the Best Workplaces for Innovators celebrates organizations that have fostered innovative thinking by investing in technology, research and development, and their employees." 

"The accelerated evolution of technology and the exponential growth of the marketing technology ecosystem transformed marketing as we knew it" said Ivonne Kinser, senior digital marketing director of Avocados From Mexico. "Under these circumstances, creativity can be taken to new heights, and at Avocados From Mexico we have embraced that powerful combination of creativity and technology to leave our mark in the industry by launching disruptive and memorable digital experiences that also produce off-the-chart results," said Kinser.
