Australian avocados in Japan

Australia can now export fresh avocados to Japan. On this page, you will find information on growing regions, seasonality and currently accredited packhouses.

Australia produces avocados all year. Currently, the Australian avocado industry can supply the Hass avocado to Japan from our growing regions in Western Australia, the Riverland of South Australia and Tasmania from August to March.


Australian avocados are exported via airfreight, ensuring Japanese consumers have access to fresh, high-quality Australian fruit. Australian avocados are mainly used in savoury dishes but can also be used in sweet dishes such as smoothies, ice creams and cakes.
