Calavo expands Chilean acreage

Calavo Growers Inc., Santa Paula, Calif., has expanded its Chilean avocado acreage and has taken its Chilean program “back to the fundamentals” by dealing directly with growers rather than exporters, said Rob Wedin, vice president of sales and marketing. 

The company is part owner of Calavo de Chile, Santiago, and is working to show growers exactly how the avocado market operates and how returns are generated, just as the company has done in California.

Product is packed under the Calavo label, which means it is shipped under controlled-atmosphere conditions so that when it arrives in Los Angeles and New Jersey, it has maintained its freshness, Wedin said.
