Israel, located on the southeastern coast of the Mediterranean Sea, is one of the countries where avocado consumption is high with its population of nearly 10 million and its wealth. People migrating from rural areas to the city aim to eat healthy in this new lifestyle. For this purpose, they often include avocado recipes in their diet lists. Avocado consumption in Israel is generally concentrated among the young population, and hundreds of thousands of tourists coming to the country show great interest in avocado recipes in addition to traditional flavors. In the light of all these data, it is a fact that avocado consumption is popular in Israel and unfortunately, there is no production in Israel to meet the demands of the domestic market. For this purpose, Israel meets the avocados it needs through imports.
Israel Avocado Imports
Avocado imports in Israel have been increasing year by year. The interest in avocados, which started in 2015 all over the world, has a great impact on this increase. When we look at the figures in general, avocado imports are around 1560 tons in 2021. When we look at the last ten years of data, avocado imports, which were 150 tons in 2012, increased 10 times in ten years, giving important clues about the future of avocados in Israel.
Israel imports the avocados it needs from many countries. Among these countries, Mexico has the largest market share, followed by Peru, Chile, Colombia, South Africa and Uganda. As an alternative to all these countries, Kenya stands out as the country that has increased its production the most in recent years. Due to its climate, geographical location and cheap production costs, Kenya offers the best quality avocados to the world market at the most affordable prices. Many importers in Israel prefer Kenyan producers as their main avocado supplier.
Another point that should be known about importing avocados to Israel is the transportation route through which avocados will be brought. Avocado shipments to Israel are usually made by large merchant ships. In this context, Haifa port, Israel’s largest port, has all the necessary facilities for cold chain avocado containers with its electrical connection stations. Another frequently preferred way is air transportation. Fresh avocados brought to Ben Gurion International Airport have the capacity to maintain their freshness until the time of shipment in the cold storages here.
