Henry Avocado’s new east coast facility now has the ability to distribute over 300,000 fresh avocados every day. This means we’ll start seeing fresher avocados in grocery stores and restaurants throughout the Charlotte region.
The company was originally founded in 1925 – they now ripen and distribute avocados through their centers in California, Arizona, Texas, and now North Carolina.
“Fresh organic and conventional avocados are always in season at Henry. As a year-round distributor, Henry grows and packs avocados from its groves in California and imports from growers in Mexico, Peru and Chile that meet the company’s strict quality and freshness standards,” according to Henry’s website.
