The avocado, now widely regarded as a super fruit due to its many health benefits, is packed with essential vitamins and minerals.
For optimum yield and quality, avocado production requires particular orchard management practices to be carried out within specific physiological windows. At Halls, we adopt the principles of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to ensure the crop is cultivated within a harmonious and sustainable environment, whilst protecting it from particular insects. These pre-emptive measures of monitoring help to reduce the dependence on plant protection sprays.
Post-harvest handling from orchard to shelf involves the special attention of all our experienced staff. They become custodians of the fruit as it passes through the intricate chain which includes grading, packing, ripening, refrigeration, trucking and containerisation. This careful handling ensures that the fruit arrives at its distant destination in a fresh condition similar to when it was picked off the tree.
