Our avocados are packed in Uruapan and Patzcuaro, Michoacan Mexico in newly built facilities. Our families of growers have invested to offer the best quality product available from Michoacan.
The cost of a new packing house is high. The APEAM license costs $250,000. Construction and land cost can total $2-$3 million. Growers who have significant acreage can benefit by packing their family’s fruit, insuring the best handling from seedling to box.
We are sales agents for two new packing companies who own over 1,000 HA of avocado orchards. These companies will ship 50 loads weekly to the USA in 2015, increasing to 100 loads weekly next year.
