Ongoing project

Avocado industry supply and trade data capture and analysis (AV22016)

Key research provider: Avocados Australia

What is it all about?

This project is about dispatch supply data and seasonal forecasting in the avocado industry.

Given avocados are a unique crop that can be selectively harvested once mature, there exists a significant opportunity to support and regulate the flow of product volumes through the supply chain and facilitate seasonal and long-term industry planning.

The provision of this data contributes to a more consistent quality product for consumers, a more stable supply and consistent prices, all of which supports demand and optimises returns for growers.

The objectives of this project are to:

  • Collect and report high quality industry and market data to aid both short- and long-term industry strategic planning activities and decision making.
  • Support seasonal harvesting and marketing decisions through the collection of robust, relevant, and verifiable supply throughput, trade, and retail pricing information.
  • Help maintain a timely supply and demand balance that supports a more sustainable, prepared, and competitive industry for growers and consumers alike.
  • Produce long term industry production forecasts to inform stakeholders of the medium-long term outlook for the industry to validate and inform broader issues and production trends facing the industry regionally, and across Australia.
