WITH Bund­aberg pro­duc­ing 50 per cent of Queens­land’s av­o­ca­dos, it’s no won­der a lo­cal busi­ness is mak­ing strong moves on the mar­ket.

Next week the Hin­kler In­no­va­tion Se­ries break­fast will be held, where de­mog­ra­pher Bernard Salt, who pop­u­larised the term “smashed avo” will present a year-end up­date on the Bund­aberg econ­omy.

In the lead-up to the event, lo­cal com­pany AustChilli re­leased its first pro­duc­tion run for a minia­ture sin­gle serve of their AvoFresh prod­uct.

Bund­aberg Re­gional Coun­cil Mayor Jack Dempsey said de­spite the stigma of the smashed avo and the mil­len­ni­als that or­der them, Bund­aberg was an af­ford­able place to have your smashed av­o­cado and a home, too.

“Our hous­ing af­ford­abil­ity com­bined with the many op­por­tu­ni­ties avail­able in a wide range of in­dus­tries are just two of the many rea­sons our re­gion is such a great lo­ca­tion to live, work, play and in­vest,” Cr Dempsey said.

“To wel­come Mr Salt to the re­gion, a num­ber of cafes will be serv­ing smashed av­o­cado as their weekly spe­cial at rates more af­ford­able than the dishes served in metropoli­tan ar­eas.

“This will high­light our en­vi­able pad­dock to plate po­si­tion.” Alow­ishus De­li­cious, Nour­ish Cafe and City El­e­ments will be tak­ing part in the smashed av­o­cado spe­cial.

AustChilli group di­rec­tor Trent De Paoli wants to let the world know how good the Bund­aberg re­gion is for grow­ing av­o­ca­dos.

His AvoFresh prod­uct is sold in Aus­tralia, New Zealand, Sin­ga­pore, hong Kong and Malaysia.

“The Bund­aberg re­gion has the widest pro­duc­tion win­dow for av­o­cado in Aus­tralia, with the high­est con­sis­tency of qual­ity and avail­abil­ity,” Mr De Paoli said.

“AvoFresh is the first prod­uct of its kind in the world and its pop­u­lar­ity is grow­ing by the day.”
