HAB Avocado Quality Manual – Giving the Industry a Quality Boost!

Early in 2020 we introduced the first version of the HAB Avocado Quality Manual, a Guide to Best Practices to the industry. Later in the year we unveiled the Spanish version of the same document. Since it’s introduction, the manual in both languages have been, by far, the most downloaded documents on our website. It indicates we are filling a need for clear and concise best handling practices for everyone in the avocado supply chain.

The manual took considerable time to create, as industry stakeholders from across the supply chain worked collaboratively to help develop best-demonstrated practices to be shared across the chain. It is a holistic approach to quality as it encourages each step of the chain to work with the other points of the supply chain to help us achieve our collective goal.

HAB Quality Manual - Available in English and Spanish
