Thank you to the grower services team and our growers for supporting our strategy of holding fruit late for our post-Christmas retail programmes.
Great returns have come out of the Asian markets as a whole, specifically from Thailand, Korea and China all contributing significantly to the pool.
We’ve had a pleasing start to our long-term market development program in China. There have been small volumes into the Chinese market this season, but we have presented a premium product at a premium price, catering to a niche piece of the market.
The 2018/19 season will see JAL place 75% of our Australian volume into direct retail, a 50% increase dating back to 2014/15. An exciting time for Just Avocados, specifically taking into consideration this is direct retail for Just Avocados growers.
