With its creamy taste, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals, the world’s favorite avocado fruit is of course also popular in Armenia, and this healthy eating trend, which was started by the young population, is rapidly growing among the middle-aged and older age groups. Today, the rapid spread of information on healthy eating through social media and other communication channels has made people more aware of nutrition and sports. In addition to this, the need for avocados is increasing day by day as people in Armenia live in towns and cities and include healthy foods in their life routines.
Despite all these good developments, the avocados grown on an individual basis in Yerevan are unfortunately not in the quantities required by the domestic market, and as a result, avocado imports have become mandatory.
Armenia Avocado Imports
Avocados, which are frequently used in healthy nutrition lists, are used in various ways according to the tastes of each country. Avocados, which are included in Armenian cuisine with different recipes from each other, reached an annual figure of 180 tons in 2021 thanks to these recipes. This 180-ton figure witnessed a growth rate of 90% compared to the previous year. The steady increase in these figures is in line with the growing interest in avocados around the world, as evidenced by the 500% growth from 2015 to 2016 as a result of the Super Bowl commercial in 2015, which is a striking fact about avocado interest in Armenia.
Armenia imports the avocados it needs from abroad, and the countries that export avocados to Armenia include South Africa, Peru, Spain, Israel, Colombia, Chile, Kenya, Chile, Colombia, Peru, Spain, Spain, Spain, Israel, Israel, Israel, Israel, Israel and Kenya. Avocados imported from countries according to seasonal changes, market shares vary as a result of countries such as Kenya that import fresh avocados all season long, and if we want to look a little statistically, in 2021, Armenia imported approximately 180 tons of avocados, making it a good market for avocado exporting countries. Again, if we want to look at the interest of avocados in Armenia, avocado imports, which were as low as 3 tons in 2015, have increased significantly year by year and reached the current values.
The way to import avocados to Armenia is by air. Avocado imports made through Zvartnots International Airport are kept in cold storage in the cargo terminal and delivered to the final suppliers.
