Our Commitment to Sustainability

With advanced sustainability practices that protect our land, preserve our resources and support the health and safety of our people, we understand our responsibility to minimize our global footprint, promote ethical supply chains and cultivate a better future for generations to come.

We operate under conservation and environmental health initiatives, like the Rainforest Alliance. We utilize drip irrigation and recyclable packaging whenever possible, and heavily invest in sustainable technology, such as solar energy. Additionally, we subject our business operations to audits by the Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI) and the Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit (SMETA).

We believe our sustainability initiatives embody our core values:

Finest for Our Product

Thanks to our deep relationships with growers all over the world, Mission Produce is the world’s largest source of trusted, high-quality avocados all year long. We source and grow our avocados from the regions we believe will provide our customers, and their consumers, with the world’s finest avocados. All our avocados are harvested by hand, and our field to fork model is managed by the best in the business to provide healthy, safe high-quality fruit.

Quality

Quality matters and our advanced supply chain and methods are built around this philosophy. We have set the standard for quality processes and procedures to ensure we deliver the highest quality fruit to our customers at all times. It starts in fields with our expertly managed groves and grower support. Once the fruit enters our possession, we keep the avocados temperature-controlled until it reaches our customers to extend shelf-life and preserve the quality of the fruit. In locations of elevated heat, we are the only handler to use hydro-cooling within 24-hours of picking to enhance fruit quality and shelf life.

Across the globe, we perform thorough inbound and outbound inspections on all orders, assessing the fruit quality, specifications, defects, labeling requirements, pulp temperatures, packing dates, dry goods integrity, and verifications of the customer and quantity. We perform dry matter inspections by the country of origin, as well as weigh all fruit boxes. Additionally, we conduct weekly equipment calibrations and cooler temperature inspections to ensure we are operating at our best. These practices ensure the highest quality fruit for the consumer.

Food Safety

Food safety is top priority in every aspect of growing, packing and shipping avocados to market. We have a centralized department comprised of scientists, engineers, project managers, sanitation professionals and food safety experts that manage the global uniformity for all food safety programs.

We are accredited by the following organizations which are benchmarked under the GFSI:
