The Avocado Sustainability Center

The Avocado growing community is made up of small, multi-generational, family farmers who are dedicated to growing healthy, tasty avocados in ways that sustain the environment for now and for generations to come.

This commitment to growing healthy food, healthy people and a healthy planet is why the Hass Avocado Board created the Avocado Sustainability Center, to drive research and continuous improvement.

Healthy Food

Avocados have good fats and contribute nearly twenty vitamins and minerals. This makes them a healthy, nutrient-dense choice to support healthy living. As part of a healthy diet, avocados help reduce risk factors for multiple chronic diseases.

Healthy People

The avocado community is made up of small multi-generational, family farmers that create jobs and support strong farming communities.

Healthy Planet

Avocados are grown on trees using naturally regenerative practices including no-till, cover-cropping and water conservation, that support the climate, enrich the soil, and protect natural resources. Regenerative agriculture is a win-win for farmers, the environment, and consumers.

The Vision:The Avocado Sustainability Center (ASC) will become the premier provider of sustainability research, data and information for the Hass avocado industry and a trusted thought-leader in the field of sustainability and agriculture that will provide a better future for the industry.
