West Pak Avocado has been proudly growing, packing, shipping, and distributing premium avocados for over three decades. Our commitment to quality represents not only the produce that we sell and how we respect the land, but also to the way in which we conduct business.
At West Pak, we source our avocados from a network of family growers across North, Central, and South America. We work hard to ensure the highest quality of year-round fruit by helping growers consistently exceed strict U.S. food safety standards. At our various state-of-the-art packing facilities, we take extreme care in the sorting, bagging, and shipping process to ensure that only the freshest fruit is delivered to our customers, and is done so in a timely manner. And, to set us apart from the competition, we offer value-added services such as conditioning, bagging, and delivery.
A vital part of our extended avocado family, our customers include the retail, foodservice, and wholesale distribution sectors. We understand your unique needs and are honored to customize programs to suit your specific requirements and category expectations.
The West Pak Avocado Journey
West Pak avocados are sourced from over 1000 growers owning over 65,000 acres across California, Mexico, Chile, and Peru. Current distribution includes 350+ customers throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Japan, China, South Korea, Hong Kong, and the Middle East.
Cultivating the perfect avocado is a fascinating process. Best grown in warm climates with plenty of moisture, West Pak avocados receive thoughtful care from our close-knit network of family-owned growers. Sourced year round, our avocados begin their journey in the fertile hills throughout California, Mexico and south of the equator in sun-soaked Chile and Peru. Hand-raised to perfection, each avocado is picked upon maturity and sent to any one of our five modern processing and distribution centers.
Did you know? Commercial production typically starts after four years of growth with 60 to 400 avocados per tree.
Fruit handling is an essential facet of putting the best quality avocados out on the market. When avocados are properly packed, it ensures consistency for our buyers. That’s why our modern facilities include such avo-friendly technologies as pallet and bin pre-cooling, computerized sizers, and forced-air ripening.
Whether destined for domestic grocery chains, wholesale membership stores, food-service or foreign markets, our shippers are climate controlled throughout their journey to be sure that we consistently deliver maximum freshness.
West Pak avocados are enjoyed by shoppers worldwide. A recent study calls youthful, married customers in need of a healthy meal or snack, a distinct group of “super heavy shoppers” (source: Hass Avocado Board). These buyers account for 73% of all avocado purchases.
