Kenyan grown avocados have been making serious headway in the international market. Demand for these in Europe has been growing exponentially over the past decade. We quickly realised the quality of avocado locally is extremely high and with efficient fruit management, we would be able to achieve an incredible quality of oil.
We value our farmers. This is why our farmer contracts are pro-fair trade, and they are treated as invaluable suppliers. Our experienced field officers provide first hand support to the farmers, and advise them on how to keep their trees in good condition to be able to obtain maximum output. We encourage our farmers to sell their best crop to export companies to maximise their incomes.
We are always trying to improve our products and the way we conduct business. We aim to give the farmers back as much as possible, and we are constantly training and advising our farmers on how to get the best out of their trees.
We give our farmers free seedlings to encourage them to grow more avocados and increase their revenues and livelihoods.
Like any good extra virgin oil, the look and taste will vary from regions, production methods etc. Extra virgin oil has a superior, buttery taste with an aroma of avocado. The colour of the oil should range from emerald green to yellowish green. The oil has a subtle avocado taste and should not feel oily on the tongue.
Quality comes from harvesting to production process. A carefully managed ripening process ensures only good fruit ripened to a specific point is used. Our cold press production ensures we retain all the natural nutrition. We try to keep all the good stuff in there! The oil is stored in tanks without any oxygen to prevent oxidation. This allows the oil to stay fresher for longer.
Refined oils are those that are obtained by refining virgin oils using chemical and physical filters. Refined oils do not retain all of the nutrition of the virgin oil as it is "damaged" in the refining process.
We currently offer extra virgin avocado oil in bulk packaging and quantity. For more information please contact us using the contact form or details below.
