Irvine, CA — Now is the time to satisfy America’s appetite for Fresh California Avocados on foodservice menus! The California avocado industry has worked throughout the year, nurturing the land and the trees, and is ramping up for the 2018 season with availability February through September and peak volume availability expected May through July.

Foodservice operators can count on each and every Fresh California Avocado to deliver on high standards of quality and consistency that translate into customer satisfaction on today’s menus. The wide-ranging versatility of California Avocado includes its starring role in condiments that date back to the Aztec Empire like roasted Sweet Potato Wedges with California Avocado Chimichurri, ability to surprise and delight when deep fried in Tempura California Avocado with Crab Salad and comforting appeal when the nutty flavor and smooth texture of avocado mingles with other ingredients in hot sandwiches like Bacon, Arugula, California Avocado and Tomato Panini.
