Mission Produce - world's finest avocado's

Mission Produce was founded in 1983 by produce industry veterans Steve Barnard and Ed Williams when they recognized the potential for avocados in the US market and beyond. As avocado growers have looked to Mission Produce to pack, market and deliver their fruit, Mission Produce has grown into a global company with operations in the United States, Mexico, Peru, Chile, New Zealand, Canada and the Netherlands.

Mission Produce Europe
In 2013 Mission Produce opened their sales office and distribution center in Hazeldonk, Breda (NL). In 2017 the construction of the ripening rooms was completed. This was a big step in Mission’s European expansion-plan and made it possible to have a year-round distribution of a consistent volume of the world’s finest avocado’s to customers in the European markets.
