Hass avocado, the Colombian sensation of the Super Bowl

This Sunday, February 11, millions of people will gather to watch Super Bowl LVIII, the biggest game of the entire American football season between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers. Because of this important event, the economy is moving and Colombia is no stranger thanks to a star product: the Hass avocado.

This fruit has gained ground in the United States and in the Super Bowl it is the star when accompanied by different dishes made in homes and restaurants in that country.

In this regard, Katheryn Mejía, Executive Director of Corpohass, details in Negocios Blu how the export of Hass avocados has grown and provides some figures for this fruit.

“Avocados were exported in the last two weeks in large quantities. We sent about 70 containers with a total of more than 1,400 tons to accompany all the fans of this game in the United States,” explained Mejía .

According to Corpohass, there will be a large increase compared to last year in 2024, in relation to the amount of Hass avocados exported to the United States.

“We grew a total of 105%, that is, last year we sent about 45 containers for the same time, and as I mentioned, so far we have sent 70 containers to the United States,” highlighted by the Executive Director of Corpohass. ..

Mejía also explained that the Hass avocado grows in the United States, because it is a fruit with “good quality and taste”, which allows the market in that country to continue growing.

“The current production in Mexico is the main production used in the United States, but it is not enough to meet the many needs that are in the market. And Colombia, thanks to its quality and the ease with which we have to reach in this market, was able to capture consumers in the United States,” added Mejía.

It is worth noting that in 2023 Colombia was able to send almost 17,000 tons of Hass avocados to the United States, so it is expected that this fruit will exceed this statistic in 2024.

“And Colombia has another good characteristic, which is to produce 52 weeks a year, which means we have fruits available for export throughout the year,” he concluded.
