Imports 4,000 boxes of ripe avocados to be distributed in Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore,
Kolkata, Hyderabad, and Cochin
In its bid to delight Indians by providing them with the freshest and most exotic fruits, India’s largest fresh fruit importer IG international has tied up with Camet Trading, Peru’s leading fresh and processed fruit trader, to import fresh Peruvian avocados to India. Through the first sea shipment of Peruvian Hass avocados, IG International will receive a 40-foot container carrying 4,000 boxes of delicious, creamy, and pulpy avocados, which will be distributed in Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Kolkata, Hyderabad, and Cochin.
IG International’s partnership with Camet Trading marks a major development in India’s rapidly-growing fresh fruit market and further strengthens its position as the domain leader in the space. Camet Trading produces both Hass and Fuerte variants of avocados, and is the No. 4 exporter of Hass avocados in Peru. From a commercial viewpoint, Hass avocados are the most popularly consumed avocados in the world.
Commenting on the first shipment, Tarun Arora, Director, IG International said, “Our vision at IG International is to provide Indians with the freshest and healthiest fruits from around the world. We are therefore thrilled to bring healthy and tasty avocados to the Indian masses through our partnership with Camet Trading. Indians are diversifying their palate when it comes to fruits and vegetables, and are now adding exotic foods like avocados to their daily diets. We envision avocados becoming a staple fruit in Indian households, just like apples and mangoes.”
Considered to be a heart-healthy Super fruit, avocados contain a remarkably high amount of potassium, an electrolyte which protects the body from high blood pressure, strokes, and kidney failure. They are also rich in antioxidants which flush out toxins from the body, restoring it back to good health. Moreover, with their good cholesterol and folic acid content, avocados are considered a super food for pregnant women and babies.
