IFBC17 is just around the corner. If you haven’t registered for the conference yet, don’t miss out.
The below post comes to us from IFBC17 sponsor, Avocados from Chile, whom you will be able to meet September 29 – October 1 at the IFBC.
We don’t have to convince you of the merits of the increasingly popular avocado. Loaded with twenty vitamins, minerals and oils, avocados are cholesterol-free and packed full of unsaturated monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats (the good kind).
Avocados are a daily staple for many. The numbers are quite staggering, but weekly avocado consumption in the U.S. is estimated to reach 50 million pounds by 2019. That’s right, 50 million pounds consumed each week! Lucky for us, when local, California-grown avocados have finished their season in September, Avocados from Chile come into the market to fill the gap, keeping your grocery store well stocked and your fruit bowl happy.
So, why Avocados from Chile? Our avocados are as rich as the culture that nurtures them and as lush as the country they come from. Chile’s unusually diverse geography offers excellent growing conditions, with avocados a prime and renowned crop. Avocados from Chile are also grown responsibly and fairly by farmers who bring their pride and passion to each avocado they harvest.
