Australian Avocados aim to bowl over Indian consumers with Brett Lee on board

Via this pact, Brett Lee is expected to generate excitement and brand recognition for Australian Avocados among Indian consumers.

Australian Avocados, the official industry body for Australian avocado growers and packers, has announced its official entry into the Indian market.

To spearhead its Indian launch, the Aussie avocado growers has secured the services of the legendary Australian cricketer Brett Lee as its brand ambassador.

Lee, known for his fiery fast bowling, is expected to generate excitement and brand recognition for Australian avocados among Indian consumers.

This move marks a significant development for Australian avocados and the Indian fresh produce sector. The strategic entry into the Indian market reflects the country’s growing appetite for avocados. With a rising vegetarian population and a growing focus on healthy eating, avocados are a valuable addition to Indian diets. The Aussie avocado growers aim to capitalise on this trend by introducing premium, high-quality avocados to Indian households.

Australian officials expressed optimism about the partnership between the two nations, suggesting it could pave the way for further collaboration in the agricultural sector. Australian avocados are renowned for their exceptional quality and well-established focus on health benefits. 

During the launch of Australian avocados in India, Acting Australian High Commissioner to India, Nick McCaffrey, said, “The introduction of Australian avocados to the Indian market signifies a promising partnership between our nations. It’s a testament to the growing bilateral ties and the potential for further collaboration in the agricultural sector.”

John Tyas, CEO of Avocados Australia, stressed the significance of the Indian market and outlined the strategy to enhance the visibility of Australian avocados in India, stating, “We are excited to bring the exceptional taste and nutritional benefits of Australian avocado to the diverse Indian market. With our focus on exports and a commitment to quality and service, we are confident that we will establish a robust presence in India. While competition exists, we believe our emphasis on quality, service, availability throughout the year and market support will set us apart. Also, with Brett Lee as the brand ambassador, we are confident that Australian avocados will become a beloved fruit in Indian households, enriching meals and inspiring culinary creativity.”

“Many consumers in India are not aware of the health benefits of regular avocado consumption nor are they aware of the wide range of uses this fruit can provide in different cuisines. Our intent is to educate consumers on both these aspects, we can also help with consumer communication on the best approaches for fruit ripening and handling. India market access is a great opportunity, however, we have much to learn about this market and it will take time and effort to develop this market over the coming years.”

Australian cricket legend, Brett Lee, expressed his excitement about the partnership, stating, “I am thrilled to be associated with Australian avocados and with the fruit that embodies the essence of health. Throughout my journey, I have prioritized nourishing my body with good food, which is why I’m excited to combine this passion with my deep affinity for India and its rich culture. I look forward to championing the exceptional taste, quality, and adaptability of Australian avocados both at home and abroad.”

This, combined with its unique flavour and texture, is expected to provide Indian consumers with a compelling avocado experience.

While the Indian market presents exciting opportunities, the Aussie entity acknowledges the need to adapt to local preferences and build brand awareness over time.
