About the manufacturer, Westfalia: 

Westfalia is one of the leading growers and suppliers of avocadoes in the world. 

Their sales offices are located in South Africa, Holland, England (Greencell Ltd) and France (Comexa SAS).

Westfalia Production is made up of four core operations: Farming (nurseries and growing), Packing, Processing and Westfalia Technological Services (WTS).

Westfalia ship over 13 million cartons of avocados globally. Their expertise and marketing approach means that they can provide a 12-month supply solution in various countries.

As well as avocadoes, they supply mangoes, citrus, exotics and a full range of dried mango, avocado oil and guacamole. 

Declared a Natural Heritage Site and demonstrating the balance between indigenous forest (natural vegetation), sustainable agriculture and forestry the Westfalia Estate is situated on the foothills of the Drakensberg Escarpment near Tzaneen in the Limpopo Province, South Africa. This farm was home to Dr Hans Merensky – its founder – and is the centre of Westfalia’s agricultural operations.

For many years citrus was the main agricultural crop grown at Westfalia Estate. The citrus production was phased out in the late fifties, with the last trees being removed in the early 1960s. Since then the avocado has been the dominant agricultural crop. In the late 1980s, the Westfalia business interests were expanded to incorporate other sub-tropical fruit.
