As avocado specialists with a history of sustainable farming - Halls delivers the best quality, fresh avocado worldwide.

 

Halls offers a year-round avocado fruit supply in eight varieties sourced from our farms and selected global grower partners.

Only the best. Sustainably produced. 

We were the first avocado operation globally to achieve an ISO9000 Universal Quality accreditation. 

 

Our experienced and passionate staff are custodians of all fruit that passes through our value chain. Extra care ensures you get high-quality fresh produce when you buy avocados from Halls.

RIPENING

Although a natural process, at Halls, we manage the ripening of our avocados to perfection. 

 

  • When transported, fruit ships at low temperatures to hold it in a "sleeping state".

  • When delivered, avocado fruit is "woken-up" to its required stage of ripeness, depending on our customer needs. 

 

With ripening, packing and storage facilities in South Africa, France, the Netherlands, Spain and China, we select fruit from our carefully managed orchards and deliver them to our customers' doors.
