Driving Reliable Supply with Vertical Integration

Mission Produce is vertically integrated in Peru and is the largest exporter of avocados from the country.* Our Peruvian avocado program provides an alternative supply source during summer avocado season with the convenience of set pricing and scheduling. And our Peruvian mango program is a reliable supply source of a key mango variety to fill any gaps for year-round supply of this delicious tropical fruit.

We make it easy to set up your avocado and mango programs and leave the rest of the work to us.

Managing Quality

Our Peruvian operation consists of thousands of Mission team members across our farms and facilities, who are passionate about the quality of our product from field to fork. By managing the cultivation and harvest of our products we are able to strengthen supply reliability, enhance product oversight and drive quality control.

Investing in Technology

Mission has invested in hydrocooling technology that is applied directly in the field before it enters our packing facility. This strategic postharvest practice helps us extend shelf life, minimizes fruit damage, and promotes the long-lasting quality of our avocados.
