Our controlled and transparent supply chain, respect for nature and care for each plant— together with the cultivation of avocados spread through out the Guatemalan Highlands — means we grow, farm, harvest, ripen, process and pack everything from start to finish. This way, we control every last detail and can assure the maximum quality of the product we produce and deliver.
By preparing the soil through tillage, farmers can promote healthy plant growth, improve crop yields, and maintain the long-term fertility and productivity of their fields. Because we only use natural and industry grade approved materials and insecticides to protect our fields, it also helps us to control pests and diseases and can help kill off harmful organisms.
It all starts by planting avocado seeds and nurturing them with pure water and warm sun for up to eight years. As they grow, we constantly nurture them by hand and take care of them with only the good all-natural stuff. This special treatment gives the avocados' deep rich notes and makes for an extra creamy, buttery, flavorful final product.
Our geographic location has the perfect altitude and ideal weather conditions for Hass Avocados to thrive. Every year we hand-pick over 91,000 trees planted in 300 hectares in between all of our farms. Due to our strategic growth plan and high production volumes we are able to harvest avocados all year long, making us the most dependable supplier.
Our avocados then go through a classifying machine that specializes in grading the fruit after harvesting. The purpose of this process is to sort, grade, and classify our crops in order to meet international quality standards for export or domestic sale.
We only use state of the art technology and processes to ensure optimal quality and class to guarantee we exceed the highest possible standards the industry sets.
Our avocado's arrive in our processing plant, we begin the rigorous process of heavily cleaning, sanitizing, and preparing the fruit to make our product safe and ready to use. They are then selected and separated depending on the nature of the avocado derived product they will be used for.
The ripening process involves using specific technology formulas that contain ethylene to accelerate the maturation process. All of our avocados go through our state of the art ripening chambers to achieve a homogeneous ripening. We offer a full range of solutions that meet your needs and desired state of maturation.
If you need avocados for immediate consumption, we will deliver them in the desired state of maturation so they finish ripening naturally according to your operations and logistics timeline.
We export all avocados still in their green state of ripening, before sending them off, we move them to a forced air room. It then goes into a cold room, then shipped in containers at the same temperature with ethylene filters so that they do not continue ripening. This is all done under a meticulous process where all details are monitored under quality standards and with a traceability number and certification.
