Sizes (Also Referred to as Counts):

Avocados for export are picked and packed in sizes of 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22 and 24.


Packing & Packaging:

Packing is done in our upgraded pack-house with modern packing equipment using upgraded laminated packing 4kg cartons (35cm x 28.5cm x 9cm) or depending on the request of the customer (mostly in packaging carton boxes of 4kg, 5kg, and 10kg). The packing is done based on the HACCP Quality Assurance Accreditation and the packaging material is approved by FDA to guarantee that it does not have any damage to the product. Besides, the boxes comply with all the necessary standards for export including being cold and weight resistant.

Sizes 16, 18, 20, 22, and 24 are packed in 4 kg packs. And 26s, 28s, 30s, and 32s will be in 10kg packs.

The 4kg boxes are packed into pallets which hold 276 boxes each. Every 40 cubic feet container holds 20 such pallets (276 boxes*20 pallets =5520 boxes of 4 kg each / 40-foot container.


Transportation:

Most of fresh avocados are shipped in CA (Controlled Atmosphere) containers to Mombasa port on route to Europe and Middle East by sea. The shipments take 12 – 15 days to reach Marseilles and 21 days to reach Rotterdam / Amsterdam. To reach Dubai, for our Middle East clients, the shipments take around 8 days.

Our real time prices vary due to the many factors at play. However, as an indication, the prices (FOB) range from US$1.25 – US$1.75 per kg. Price range per box is US$ 5 – US$ 7 (FOB).

Rwathia Agrofarm.

We focus on operations in production; we contract with farmers in rural emerging markets to produce according to our methods. In Kenya, 70% of the avocado growing is by smallholder farmers, who typically can make between 600-800 fruits per acre per season. The average amount a farmer makes from each fruit is $0.46, meaning they are bringing in between $276-368 per season that goes towards supporting their families and communities. This is also a means of poverty alleviation in the avocado growing regions of Kenya.


We use sustainable climate resilient production methods. We help facilitate specialty seeds, and tree seedlings to amend the soils, and we bring materials for their production and secure post-harvest of their crops. We endeavour to export and market the products to the high-end conscious consumers in the Western, China and Middle Eastern markets. Rwathia Agrofarm uses a production method that will replace conventional agriculture.


Rwathia Agrofarm is looking for financial partners to expand production, consolidate operations and facilitate market entry in Middle East, China, Northern, Central Europe and Pacific Northwest of USA/Canada.


Avocados grown in Kenya make up about 17% of the nation’s total horticultural exports. The need for Kenya to export 40% of its avocado produce to China at -30 degrees Celsius, South Africa and other emerging markets presents a great opportunity for Rwathia Agrofarm.


Is Frozen the Future?




























The demand for frozen avocados is growing because of their convenient form and some have described the linkage between frozen food and decreasing food waste. For smallholder farmers to benefit, a tremendous upgrade of the existing value chain to include cutting, peeling and freezing facilities alongside upgrading Kenya’s cold chain infrastructure would be needed.

There is lack of technology in Kenya to provide and sustain required temperatures whilst retaining the product integrity. Cryogenic Individual Quick Freezing (IQF) technology, a global solution for the existing gap is needed. This cold chain solution is an advanced global practice for attainment of superior quality products using natural food grade carbon dioxide to attain sub-zero temperatures (0 to -78 degrees Celsius).

We look forward to setting up an Avocado Oil Processing Plant and in the long run a Cryogenic Food Processing Unit with the availability of funds and partners.
