Irvine, CA (April 2009) — Only a click away from the internet at all times, today’s young diners know their way around a menu, and take ethnic cuisines and exotic ingredients in stride. For foodservice’s next generation, Fresh California Avocados are a staple component in a wide range of popular snacks, salads, sandwiches and wraps. Following in the steps of Gen X and Y, these young diners appreciate and enjoy the smooth texture and nutty flavor of Fresh California Avocados. Raised to be aware of fresh and seasonal foods, they’re as likely as their parents to order a fast and fabulous Turkey Avocado Lavosh Wrap or Avocado Salad Flatbread Sandwich.
In season from March through October, versatile Fresh California Avocados contribute rich taste, luxurious texture and popular appeal across day parts and menu segments. California Avocado growers and packers ensure their fruit is picked at its peak and shipped ripe to assure operators can serve the best possible product to their customers.
