The World Avocado Organization (WAO) a non-profit organization which represents producers, exporters and importers of avocados from across the world, was set up in 2016 to promote avocado consumption and the health benefits of the world’s favourite superfood.
WAO is pleased to announce its expansion of educational activities to promote avocados into the vibrant and rapidly growing Indian market. With its rich history, diverse culinary traditions, and a growing appetite for healthy foods, India presents a significant opportunity for avocados consumption to grow.
Although India has witnessed a surge in avocado consumption in recent years, product usage among the Middle-class consumers is still limited. Most consumers in India are not aware about the health benefits of regular avocado consumption and also not aware how to best use this fruit in different cuisines.
Recognizing the immense potential of the Indian market, WAO has now launched an educational consumer campaign in India to create awareness about avocado nutrition and how it can be integrated in to varied Indian cuisines.
