Simplot Launches New Hand-Scooped Avocado Chunks

Nov 19, 2020

Simplot is pleased to announce another premium addition to its fresh avocado lineup: Harvest Fresh™ Hand-scooped Avocado Chunks.

For many, chunky texture is what makes scratch-made avocado pulp and guacamole truly feel scratch-made. But processing raw fruit is labor intensive, and the resulting yield—only around 50% of fresh weight—makes raw fruit an expensive choice for operators. The rapid price spikes and uncertain availability of avocado lugs don’t help.

It’s fresh, just faster
The new Harvest Fresh™ Hand-scooped Avocado Chunks are just that: hand-scooped chunks from carefully ripened, fresh Hass avocados, and that’s it—no preservatives added. You never have to pay for over- and under-ripe avocados. There are no pits and peels to compost. And you don’t have to pay someone $15/hour for prep, an attractive proposition if your kitchen is running lean during COVID-19.

Features and benefits operators will love
Harvest Fresh™ Hand-scooped Avocado Chunks offer the premium avocado chunks you need to make the rich, satisfying toppings, guacamole, smoothies and other recipes that keep your customers coming back. How can it help your operation run more smoothly and profitably?

With its healthy halo and amazing flavor, avocado’s popularity shows no signs of slowing. And, according to Technomic’s Volumetric Report, just including avocado on your menu can raise your customers’ perceptions of your menu’s quality. This can help you attract and retain more customers and increase check averages at time when every penny counts. Need more proof?

Scooped by hand (just not your hand)

If you’re tired of riding the ups and downs of the whole fruit market, Harvest Fresh™ Hand-scooped Avocado Chunks win, hands down.
