On The Road With
Avocados From Mexico

We hit the road with the first-ever AvoActive Tour, designed to demonstrate that avocados and breakfast are a perfect pairing. Visiting 17 schools across the country, the tour engaged with students and made use of a food truck, electric cart and a scooter to deliver samples and giveaways to hungry college kids. We’ll be hitting the road again in the Fall of 2017, and this time the AvoTime Anytime Tour will focus on showing students the versatility of avocados. To learn more, watch the video below, then contact us if you would like to be considered as one of the stops.
