Avocados are a commodity in the Western world, a food item that became very popular on the plates and on instagram during this millennium.

The biggest producer of avocados is by far Mexico, producing more than double the amount than the runner-up, followed by the Dominican Republic, Peru and Colombia. The only countries not from South or Central America in the Top 10 are Indonesia, Kenya, United States and China.

Data sources
This map uses data by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO)  (last accessed March 2018). We aim to map as complete data as possible and therefore estimate data for missing values. In some cases, missing data for very small territories is not used in the cartogram and that area is therefore omitted in the map.

All modification to the original data source are noted in our data sheets.
