Mexico: avocado production 2010-2019

Avocados have gained a lot of popularity in recent years. Following an increase in global demand, the production of avocados in Mexico - the largest producer of this fruit worldwide - has more than doubled in the past decade. In 2019, the Latin American country produced approximately 2.3 million metric tons of avocados.

The rise of the avocado toast

Part of the avocado’s rise to prominence can be attributed to its Instagrammable aesthetic. With Millennials being by far the most social media savvy generation, they have also been targeted as being the main culprits for propagating the avocado toast trend. Nevertheless, increasingly more restaurants and cookbooks began popularizing the dish. According to a 2018 survey on the leading breakfast/brunch trends in the United States, 45 percent of respondents reported avocado toast to be the “hottest” trend. This tendency was also reflected on Mexico’s avocado exports, which experienced an overall continual increase in the second half of the decade, reaching nearly 2.8 billion U.S. dollars in 2019.

Origins and destinations of Mexican avocados

Avocado production in Mexico is mainly concentrated in the state of Michoacán. In 2019, three quarters of the North American country’s output originated in this coastal state. Neighboring state Jalisco ranked second. And despite being the birth country of guacamole, a traditional dip with avocado as the main ingredient, this fruit's per capita consumption in Mexico has also seen an increase in recent years, reaching around eight kilograms in 2018 (around one million metric tons, based on Mexico’s population that year). Meanwhile, internationally, the U.S. was the leading country of destination for Mexican avocado exports, receiving nearly 900 thousand tons in marketing year 2018/19.
