Operations in the USA
The operation based in California supplies mainly Hass avocados to the Americas. Through its stakeholding in a local farm management company, Westfalia Fruit Americas has access to shareholder-owned ranches. At present, 931 hectares (2 300 planted acres) consisting of 59% avocado (primarily Hass) and 41% lemons are managed.
The shareholder growers are at the forefront of planting new-generation rootstocks and cultivars to optimise yield and quality and extend the supply of local Californian avocado. In addition to local Californian supply, Westfalia Fruit Americas works with growers and suppliers in Mexico, Chile, Colombia and Peru to ensure a consistent, year-round supply of quality fruit.
