Avocado Story

AVANZA’s great-tasting, premium quality avocados are sourced from two main growing regions in New Zealand – Northland and the Bay of Plenty.

Our avocado growers love producing high quality, healthy food for the world to enjoy.

Horticulture is part of New Zealand’s clean, green reputation and future.

With clean rivers, crisp air quality and pristine countryside, New Zealand avocados are superior in taste, nutrition and quality.

The key to strengthening our well-earned reputation of delivering high quality and premium products to the overseas markets are our growers, who are at the heart of what we do.

They live and breathe the avocado lifestyle by taking exceptional pride and care in their orchards to harvest only the finest fruit.

The continual growth of the New Zealand avocado industry attests to their hard work, and their up-to-date and technical knowledge.

Our commitment to a clean and green industry ensures all our growers are AvoGreen compliant, meaning pesticides are used sparingly, a requirement in order for their crop to be exported.

And we think we have all the ingredients to further strengthen our premium position in the global marketplace.


AvoGreen is a responsible and auditable avocado production system which uses the principles of Integrated Pest Management (IPM), an internationally recognised approach, to ensure pesticides are used only when needed. AvoGreen is a requirement of export and all Growers must be AvoGreen compliant in order for their crop to be exported.
