"The drop in the price of avocados has caused the demand to grow"
The Spanish mango campaign is about to start in the Axarquía of Malaga, where the harvest of the Osteen, the most common variety, is expected to kick off in early September.

"Imported mangoes have reached very high prices, so the European market is eagerly awaiting the arrival of Spanish mangoes, given their proximity and quality," says Álvaro Martínez, manager of Axarfruit, which is currently marketing Palmer mangoes from Brazil. The company also produces and markets organic avocados and lemons.

Australia opens its market to Chilean Hass avocado
Antonio Walker, the Chilean Minister of Agriculture, announced that the Australian phytosanitary authority had authorized the entry of fresh Hass avocados from Chile into their country.

This authorization will allow Chilean avocados to consider Australia among their destination countries starting this season, which represents a great opportunity since there was interest in making shipments. Despite the fact that Australia is an avocado-producing country that has a high per capita consumption that reaches 3.8 kilos per year, there would be a window in which the Chilean avocado would not overcome local production, so it could become an interesting destination for future shipments.

The national director of the Agricultural and Livestock Service, Horacio Borquez, said he was very satisfied. “This is the result of the work carried out in conjunction with the Australian phytosanitary authority, and after the exchange of technical information between both countries. This authorization for the entry of Chilean avocados to Australia is a recognition of our high phytosanitary standard. It also reflects the hard work achieved in conjunction with the producer-export sector; that's why complying with all the phytosanitary measures required by each destination country to continue achieving successes like this one is so important.”

The president of ASOEX, Ronald Bown, said: “The opening of the Australian market for Chilean Hass avocados is very good news, especially since we are about to start a new production and export season of this fruit. It allows us to expand markets and business options for the industry. Australia is a market with a high consumption of avocados, where there is a window for Chilean avocados to enter the market, as there is no local supply. We thank the Ministry of Agriculture, the Agricultural and Livestock Service, as well as the authorities of the Chilean Embassy in Australia for helping us to get this new achievement for the national fruit growing sector.”


Creation of the first association of avocado producer organizations of the Canary Islands
On July 27, the first association of avocado producer organizations of the Canary Islands, Asguacan, was presented at the headquarters of the Council of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries of the Government of the Canary Islands, located in Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

The event was chaired by the Councilor of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries, Alicia Vanoostende, who was accompanied by Wenceslao Martínez-Barona, manager of Agro-Rincón S.L. and president of the new association, and Miguel Bravo Castañeda, president of Cocampa and member of the association. Also present at the event were the Deputy Councillor of the Primary Sector, Álvaro de la Bárcena and the General Director of Agriculture, José Basilio Pérez, as well as representatives of various avocado producing organizations.

"This project is a good illustration of the objectives set for this legislature, which include the promotion of associationism, as it has an impact on the concentration of the supply and puts producers in a stronger position," said Vanoostende, for whom "this association will contribute to overseas marketing with the research and development of this emerging crop in the Canary Islands, and it will also act as an interlocutor of the sector with the administration.”

For his part, the president of Asguacan, Wenceslao Martínez-Barona, said that the "objective is to create an association based on the experience built in other sectors, anticipating and adapting to the changes that the avocado sector is going through, and seeking to strengthen and promote it," he said.

Miguel Bravo, member of the association, argued that "in view of the increase in the number of avocado plantations that have yet to become productive, it is necessary to have better planning for the fruit's sale."

Asguacan will work in all those activities that can contribute to improving the situation of the avocado sector in the islands, representing the Producers' Organizations before the administrations, promoting the incorporation of producers to the FVPO, obtaining and managing a guarantee mark or PGI, carrying out promotional actions for Canary avocados and obtaining collective insurance, as well as promoting research on the cultivation and management of this fruit in the archipelago.
