First Western Australian commercial avocado shipment arrives in Thailand

More than eight tons of Hass avocados from Australia’s South West region have now been airfreighted to Bangkok, ready to be distributed to retailers, hotels and restaurants. The first shipment of WA avocados to Thailand was given the green light earlier this week.

The demand for premium West Australian avocados is growing in Asia; export markets have already been established in Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong. The WA Government has worked closely with industry to break into the Thai market through international trade missions and exhibitions, alongside the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development.
