Avocado Imports

Map No.



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 map reflects that, showing that the 10 biggest importing countries – apart from Japan – are all in North America or Europe.

The United States of America are the biggest importer of Avocados by far, importing more than the other countries of the TOP 10 combined. The Netherlands are functioning as an Import-Export Hub, while they appear on this map as the second biggest importer, they are also the second biggest exporter without producing any.

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.

Further notes on the data, as well as all modifications to the original data source are noted in our data sheets. Data for this map will soon be available as a download.
