The launch and market visits will provide participating Australian avocado growers and exporters with the chance to forge strong relationships with Indian market contacts and these initiatives will be the first of many we plan to organise in India,” said John Tyas.


We look forward to great Aussie avocados becoming an important part of a healthy Indian diet.”
