Origen Group produces high-quality cold-pressed avocado oil made from the finest grown hass and fuerte Kenyan avocados.

Market Opportunity/ Problem

Over 40% of avocados in Kenya are lost due to poor post-harvest handling. Only about 15% of Kenya’s avocados are exported as most fruits do not meet export standards. Origen purchases all these fruits for crushing to make avocado oil, a high-value product for export.
