Hass Avocado Exceeding Expectations


One thousand meters closer to the stars in the heart of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta stands the Tolima farm, home of Hass avocado cultivation of the Daabon Group. Thanks to the kindness of mother nature reflected in fertility of her lands and the hard work of Daabon’s people, today is a reality that fills us with pride.

2018 avocado production exceeded the expectations proposed at the beginning of the year, so much so that for the second time, Daabon Group exported this fruit to European markets, meeting high quality standards. For the first semester of the current year, it is planned to start with a smaller crop called “mitaca” or “traviesa,” which will be harvested, packed and exported during the month of February, and then finish with a second during the month of October.

The experience acquired throughout this process, both in our own plantations and in the joint work with some allied producers, has led us to take measures which will be gradually implemented, seeking the continuous improvement of processes throughout the chain, hoping to optimize our quality in every sense. Historically, quality has been and will always be a commitment of the Daabon Group. “The elaboration of a protocol for crop management has undoubtedly been one of the greatest achievements amidst the experience acquired this year, allowing us to take advice to our allied producers,” indicated Ramiro Londoño, Manager of Ecobio.

We congratulate all the people who, directly or indirectly, are part of this initiative and who, in the midst of the challenges of nature, have managed to place the name of the Daabon Group once again for quality and excellence in the fulfillment of the objectives.
