Jalisco will be able to export avocado to US

Mexico’s Department of Agriculture has reached an agreement with U.S. authorities on a plan to allow avocados from a second Mexican state to be exported to the United States. For almost 25 years, Mexico has been allowed to export avocados only from one western Mexico state, namely Michoacan.

The department said a deal has now been reached that could allow avocados from the neighboring state of Jalisco, to the north, to be exported to the U.S. as soon as 2022. The department said it hopes to begin work soon with two other avocado-producing states — Nayarit to the west and Mexico State to the east — to gain approval for exports of their avocados.
