Located on the South China Sea, Hong Kong welcomes hundreds of thousands of tourists from all over the world every year with its exotic nature and population of more than 7 million. Economically developed, Hong Kong is a region that is extremely open to tropical fruits such as avocados as well as traditional delicacies.
The growing interest in avocados all over the world is witnessing a similar growth rate in Hong Kong. Avocados, which are mainly consumed among the young population, show that they will be consumed much more in the future with an annual population growth rate of 1 percent.
Unfortunately, avocados, which are very popular with both locals and tourists, cannot be produced in Hong Kong. Due to its climate, geographical structure and production costs, it is more reasonable to import avocados.
Hong Kong Avocado Imports
There has been a great increase in avocado consumption in Hong Kong in the last 10 years. When we look at the world trade data, while avocado imports for 2012 were around 2600 tons, avocado imports for 2021 are around 29500 tons. This means that avocado consumption in Hong Kong has increased more than 10 times in 10 years.
This situation will increase even more in the future and Hong Kong is trying to meet the demand of this domestic market by importing avocados. Hong Kong imports avocados from many countries, among which Chile has the highest market share. After Chile, countries such as Mexico, Peru, Australia, and the United States follow. As a new alternative to these countries, Kenya has become the main avocado supplier for many countries of the world with its high quality avocados at affordable costs. Among the reasons for this are cheap production costs, climate and geographical structure.
Another issue that needs to be known in order to import avocados to Hong Kong is which trade routes to use. Air transportation is mainly preferred for avocado imports, and avocados arriving at Hong Kong International Airport safely maintain their freshness until the date of shipment in the cold storages located here. Another alternative is sea transportation. Again, large container trade ships arriving at the port of Hong Kong can ship products without breaking the cold chain thanks to the electrical connection stations they need here.
