According to Fresh Plaza, fresh produce global news website, more than 120 tonnes of avocados from the Mexican province of Jalisco were prevented from entering the United States last week.
This fact was denounced by producers from the area. To prevent the fruit’s loss, the solution suggested by the Association of Producers and Exporters of Avocados from Jalisco was to redirect the fruit to the neighbouring country of Canada.
In 2015, 80% of the avocados consumed by the United States came from Mexico, and only 10% of the demand was covered by local production. “Neither a wall nor a tax will prevent our avocados from reaching stores in the United States.
The odds that the US will be able to become self-sufficient are very small. And eventually, it will be US consumers who will end up paying more for the avocados they consume,” stressed Mexican producers.
