Central Queensland/Sunshine Coast Director
Eric grew up on an avocado farm in WA and has been involved in avocado farming in Queensland since 2002. He was a grower, packer and marketer at Avocado Ridge and SuperPak which was sold to Costa in December 2016. Deciding that he preferred to be involved in a family operation, Eric left Costa in July of 2018 and began searching for an opportunity to return to family farming. In July 2019, Eric and his wife purchased a 735 acre farm in Abington, QLD where they are growing Avocado and Macadamia.
“I love that avocados are a “superfood”, how great they are nutritionally and allow for great versatility that no other food can replicate. I believe the Australian avocado industry’s future is strong – demand will continue to increase both globally and locally as more people become aware of the Avocado’s nutritional benefits as well as its taste, flavour and flexibility in a variety of recipes.”
