To this end, it is important to note that in April 2020, the market access of fresh California Haas avocados as part of the U.S.-China Economic and Trade Agreement (ETA) was announced by China. Despite certain areas in China were known to grow avocados before 2005, and Mexican avocados gaining market access during 2005, it was not until 2013 the consumption of avocados gained momentum. The growing demand for fresh avocados in the country is mainly driven by an increasing pool of middle-income consumers who are inclined to pay a premium for quality, healthy fruits as well as the large millennial population who are inclined to experiment with their diets and accommodate exotic agricultural produce. Fresh avocados are marketed over both offline and online distribution channels in the nation. This also suggests that the APAC region is poised to occupy a significant share in the global avocado market.
