207% increase in exports of Mexican avocados to China in 2021

Avocado exports from Mexico to China have reached a record high between January and August this year. Data from China Customs shows that during the first eight months of 2021, China bought 24,670 tons of avocados, of which 5,539 tons (22.5%) were imported from Mexico.

China imported 18,912 tons of avocados during the first eight months of 2020, of which 1,804 tons or 9.5% originated from Mexico, while the latter figure represents an increase of 207% year-on-year for avocado imports from Mexico.

Mexico’s avocado exports to the US are expected to decline by 8% between July and June of this year to an estimated 1.33 million tons, according to a report by the USDA Foreign Agricultural Service.

Mexico will continue to be the largest exporter of avocados to the United States, receiving approximately 80% of its exports every year. US demand for avocados is typically high during the Big Game (January to February) and the Cinco de Mayo holiday (April to May). As of now, however, the only avocados allowed into the US are those from Michoacán.

Mexico’s avocados are also exported to Canada, Japan, and Spain, while China represents less than 1% of total exports.
