As principal sponsor, we take great delight in welcoming you to the 5th New Zealand and Australian Avocado Growers' Conference in Tauranga.

AVOCO™ is an exciting hybrid company created by the two leaders in avocado exports from New Zealand: Primor Produce Ltd and Southern Produce Ltd.

Formerly very competitive international rivals, we have recognised that the interests of the New Zealand avocado industry and its growers are best served by a unified entity. Together as AVOCO™, we now account for about 70% of the export market for avocados to leading supermarket chains and distributors in Australia. This move is the final piece in the marketing jigsaw that marries all markets under a collaborative model for Primor Produce and Southern Produce.

Growers in Southern Produce’s Team Avocado network are now working with Primor Produce’s growers under this vibrant new coalition that shares one ambition – to maximise our combined expertise to make New Zealand avocados a truly global nutritional food phenomenon. We are committed to getting the best returns for our loyal growers through providing outstanding product, information and service to our customers worldwide.

The formation of AVOCO™ marks a real turning point for the avocado export industry in New Zealand and its ability to increase our global relevance.

Given our understanding of the industry and commitment to work alongside our ever-expanding grower network to further its international success, we are the natural choice as principal sponsor of this conference.
