The first Ecoganic red tip avocados have arrived for sale this week at Perfection Fresh in the Sydney Markets. Ecoganic farming develops and maintains ecosystem restoration and carbon sequestration, which are climate change solutions for the future of Agriculture globally.
Blarney Enterprise owners Clinton and Ben Scott, together with Frank Sciacca the inventor, have pioneered the ecoganic farming system in avocado production over the past 18 months on their Bundaberg farm on the Queensland south coast.
Ecoganic Red Tip Avocados will test and target the Australian Market for the 2022 crop followed with a high focus on Exports to the Asia Pacific Region in 2023.
Mr Sciacca says "Ecoganics® is focused on natural balance. It's about removing synthetic or organic coping mechanisms (which often introduce unintended consequences and deplete soil health), when nature has already demonstrated a capacity to provide the perfect solution. Insects and organisms have been eating other insects and organisms and replenishing carbon in the soil for millions of years."
Angelo Coco from Invention Pathways, in Townsville Australia says, "The pandemic is making companies review their sustainability from a different perspective. Social and health issues are underpinning the consumers demand for change to healthier and more sustainable options.
When purchasing a signature wax tip avocado or banana the consumer is assured that their purchase is paying for the protection of on-farm ecosystem restoration and off-farm natural assets like reefs, rainforests and waterways.
