Australian avocado growers want an end to NZ imports

Australian growers want their consumers to buy domestically grown avocados, not the imports from New Zealand. A bumper domestic production has caused a glut in the Australian supply, and imported avocados from New Zealand are just making the situation worse, local growers suggest.

Media reports in Australia say farmers are dumping avocados as plummeting prices. Last month, Avocados Australia announced that the national avocado production was expected to continue to increase to 170,000 tons by 2026, more than double the 2020-21 crop of 78,000 tons.

For New Zealand avocado growers, Australia remains its biggest export market. Last season New Zealand exported 4.3 million trays of avocados to Australia. Still, alternative markets are being developed and Australian growers want to see an end to imports.
