Why There Will Be Plenty Of Avocados For National Avocado Day

Smash it on toast, scoop it onto a chip, add it to your Fenway Frank ... everyone loves the avocado! This versatile fruit is even popular enough to have its own day. According to National Day Calendar, July 31 is National Avocado Day. It was established in 2017 by Model Meals, a healthy meal delivery service that wanted to celebrate one of their favorite fruits. How much do the founders of Model Meals, Danika Brysha and Camille May, love avocados? They carry "purse avocados" just in case they need a midday snack.

In light of past shortages, avocado lovers may worry: Will there be enough avocados available to properly celebrate National Avocado Day on July 31, 2022? There's no need to fret. Avocado shortages are behind us. In fact, the buzz is that there's a guarantee that every guac-lover and toast-smasher will have plenty of avocados, even enough to try out new recipes like our green goddess dressing or classic ceviche, both of which give a starring role to the avocado.

Westfalia Fruit guarantees good avocado supply

Westfalia Fruit is a multinational fruit supplier that specializes in avocados. They've developed a robust supply chain to deliver avocados across the year and across the globe. In advance of National Avocado Day 2022, Westfalia issued a press release guaranteeing retailers a "full supply of the highest quality fruit possible to meet shopper demand around this consumer holiday."

Westfalia recommends its retail partners display avocados with other produce like tomatoes, jalapeños, cilantro, and onions to encourage shoppers to make their own fresh guacamole as they celebrate on July 31. We're particularly fond of this version of mango guacamole, which pairs juicy, fresh mango with cumin and lime to complement the rich, creamy avocado. Other suggestions to retailers include displaying foods and kitchen gadgets to encourage shoppers to create their own burgers topped or stuffed with ripe avocado. Most importantly, we won't need to stockpile avocados, as there should be ample supply throughout the summer.
