Being a part of Avocados From Mexico means infinitely more than working at a company. It's an
experience; a meeting place for passionate and talented people of all backgrounds to unite under the
banner of innovation. If that sounds like somewhere you'd fit in, we invite you to take a glimpse at the
AFM experience. You might have just found your home with us!
We are Avocados From Mexico, an avocado brand and nonprofit marketing organization founded in 2013. We may be a small, young company, but we're already achieving big things. We have staked our claim as the top avocado brand in the United States, thanks to our unique and innovative culture and the high-performance team who contributes to it.
At our company's core (or should we say its pit?) is the diverse team of individuals that makes everything we do possible. No two employees at AFM are the same, and we're proud of that. The rich and vibrant lifestyles in our office are the lifeblood of our company culture. In a word, each of our employees belongs to the AFM family - that's where our brand's success is born.
The success of our company and our employees is facilitated through a simple CREED: Culture, Recognition, Engagement, Empowerment, and Development. We live out this code in a spirit of family, fun, and togetherness - we call that spirit "Mexicanity." We're always looking for opportunities to channel the vibrant magic of Mexicanity and meaningful good times into everything we do.
Want to see where we work? Every corner of our office, from our Culinary Center to our
open collaboration room, is bursting with character to reflect our brand, our goals, and
our fun and high-performing culture. Take a look!
AFM is composed of the brightest thinkers, doers, and innovators. Our intentional culture is designed to ignite existing passions and discover new ones — the secret ingredient to our company’s mutual success. We help our employees strike the perfect balance between an equally rewarding professional and personal life.
Our employees can rest assured that they are being taken care of with a comprehensive set of medical, paid time off, and financial benefits.
We follow a set of motivational guidelines to push us to achieve our goals, cultivate our brand equity, and challenge us to continuously improve.

The AFM experience means something special to everyone who takes part in it. Here are
a few employee testimonials to what makes working at AFM exceptional for them.
One of the accomplishments I am most proud of is building this company from the ground up. Teaming up with a wonderful and diverse group of over achievers and creative thinkers that have made AFM a success. Not only have we created a brand in a package-less category and doubled the volume of Mexican avocado imports in the U.S. in just seven years, but our innovative drive has put AFM on the path to become the most innovative produce company in the world.
Creative freedom and innovation are important to me. That's one of the reasons why I love to work for Avocados From Mexico. We get to put out in the world things that didn't exist before we created them, and that's a very consequential purpose.
The culture of AFM is one that is uniquely special because every employee is valued and appreciated for who they are. There's also an enthusiastic aura about the direction the company is going (it's only moving towards bigger and better things!).
AFM has been recognized as one of the most innovative companies to work for, so employees not only get the opportunity to think outside the box to develop unique programs, they're also encouraged to create programs that no one has ever done before.
My favorite thing about AFM is the avocados! And the amazing teams we get the opportunity to work with (internally and externally).
The Women's Leadership Committee has been a very helpful resource for me - as a leader and as a participant. I've really enjoyed learning from other smart and inspiring female leaders at AFM and discussing topics that are important to each and every one of us. Getting the opportunity to attend the Women's Fresh Perspectives Conference two years ago was a great chance to learn about how I can continue to amplify my fellow women in the workplace, and make sure the best ideas are heard.
