The campaign aims to inspire Malaysians to make healthier food choices with the great tasting, deliciously rich and creamy Australian avocados all year round. Consumers can be assured of the best quality 'farm to table' freshness Australian avocados as they were air freighted at optimum maturity into Malaysia. Meanwhile, we can enjoy an abundant of supplies with the large Hass Avocado harvest from growing regions in Western and Southern Australia, Victoria and Western NSW, Northern and Central Queensland.

The unique combinations of vitamins and minerals found in avocados can help keep the immune system strong, boost energy, enhance brain power, increase bone strength, aid gut health, support healthy skin and they can even boost your mood. Incorporating avocado into your salad also can enhance the absorption of key nutrients in other fresh vegetables such as lycopene from red tomatoes and beta carotene from orange and carrots.
