Las exportaciones de Nueva Zelanda siguen una tendencia al alza
The avocado sector is in a good position for growth, with increasing demand outstripping supply, according to ANZ Agri Focus.
And that was creating new greenfield development opportunities in the upper North Island.
"Globally, many countries are eating more and more avocados due to their versatility, trendiness and health benefits. Due to a long lead time for development, supply is struggling to keep up," ANZ rural economist Con Williams said.
That growing global demand, along with recent opening up of the Chinese market, highlighted the opportunity for New Zealand to increase the value of the industry from $146 million to the high $200 million mark over the next five years.
