Record Production Month for Grove Avocado Oil

World leading producer and marketer of premium cold pressed extra virgin avocado oil, Grove Avocado Oil, has set a new production record of 90,000 litres in February, more than three times its normal average monthly volume.

A huge domestic avocado crop has provided the opportunity for the Te Puna, Bay of Plenty based company to significantly increase production to meet growing demand from its main markets in New Zealand and Australia and begin exporting to Mexico, Korea and Japan to expand its international reach beyond the UK, Europe, China and Taiwan.

“The New Zealand harvest starts in September and extends through to March and each month we have increased our production volumes to ensure adequate supply of our full range of cold pressed extra virgin avocado oil and our lime, horopito pepper and garlic variants,” said Marketing Manager, Matt Carlson (pictured in the production and bottling factory).

Grove Avocado Oil is a New Zealand original, 100 per cent pure and natural, pressed and bottled at the Te Puna plant under an integrated and audited safety and quality system that stretches from orchard to the shop shelf.

* The fresh avocados are taken to Grove’s pressing plant at Te Puna, inspected and washed with high pressure water

* The washed fruit are processed to remove seed, skin and any potential for environmental residues

* The flesh is cold pressed at approximately 45°C to preserve the nutrients

* Grove Avocado Oil has acidity reading of less than 1%and is a genuine extra virgin avocado oil made from a single pressing

* The pure green oil is bottled in antique green glass bottles to protect it from possible damage from exposure to light and oxygen
