Operations in France​

Access to pre-pack facilities and marketing channels in France provides Westfalia Fruit with a footprint in the largest avocado-consuming country in continental E​urope. French partner Comexa SA ensures the Group maintains a direct link to market requirements in the EU, establishing partnerships that enable the business to address new market developments.

Comexa’s Paris-based facility boasts cutting-edge ripening and packing technologies, supporting its leading position in avocado​ distribution in France. The operation also markets large volumes of subtropical fruit, including mangoes, limes, coconuts, and litchis.

Thanks in large part to the experience of its teams, Comexa is a specialist in ready-to-eat and triggered fruit, providing a daily service from the sources of Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Israel, Kenya, Mexico, Peru, South Africa, Spain, Tanzania and Zimbabwe. Optimum quality is ensured all year round.


​​​​Westfalia Fruit supplies two types of avocado cultivar to its customers, depending on the season.


Greenskin Avocados​​
  • ​​​Greenskin avocados include Fuerte, Pinkerton, Edranol and Ryan.
  • When they are harvested, the mature fruit is a green colour and the fruit peel remains green once the avocado is ripe.
  • Greenskin cultivars have thin skins, which can be easily peeled when the fruit is ripe.


Darkskin Avocados​​
  • ​Darkskin avocados include Hass, Carmen®-Hass, Gem® ​and Nature’s Hass.
  • They are also green in colour when mature, at the time of harvest. As they ripen, the fruit’s skin turns dark purple to black, indicating ripeness.
  • The darkskin’s textured, ‘pebbly’ skin is thicker than a greenskin’s and cannot be as easily peeled. The harder skin protects these avocado cultivars from bruising easily, and facilitates scooping of the flesh with a spoon.
  • Darkskins are easy to handle and merchandise, making them the ideal cultivar for ready-to-eat fresh retail fruit.
