Avocados Australia recognises export market development is a high priority for our growing industry. Given the forecast increase in Australian production, new market development is essential. Avocados Australia works on behalf of industry to gain market access to new export markets. Current priority markets are Thailand, Japan and China. The majority of Australian avocados are currently exported to Singapore and Malaysia (see graph below). Avocados Australia provides regular communication to industry on export development through our comprehensive communication program.
