Australia provides new market access of avocados to India

Australia exported a record $55 million of avocados in 2022

Australian Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry, Murray Watt has said that Australia and India has agreed on two-way agricultural trade that will provide new market access for Australian ‘Hass’ avocados to India and access for Indian okra to Australia.

This is a significant market access opportunity for Australian avocado producers, with the opening of a new export market which industry estimates has a potential market value of approximately $25 million.

India’s large population and diversifying economy is creating new demand for premium and healthy produce which Australia is well placed to deliver on.

This agreement showcases Australia’s high-quality produce to a larger global market and contributes to further export diversification opportunities for the Australian avocado industry. Successful completion of 10 trial ‘Hass’ avocado shipments to India will be required before the trade protocol with India is finalised for broader trade.
