Chilean avocados arrive in Australia

According to Avocados Australia, the first shipment of Chilean avocados has landed in Australia. John Tyas, chief executive of Avocados Australia, said imported avocados face tough competition from domestic supply but a down year may provide an opportunity. “The Australian Government determined the import conditions earlier this year for fresh avocados from Chile. So they are now legally able to be imported into Australia, as long as they meet our strict quarantine requirements,” Tyas said.
