An additional 45 million avocado units this year puts the category at a 5.2% year-to-date volume growth, says the Hass Avocado Board. The year-to-date dollar sales numbers have already surpassed the original projection of $908.5 million, hitting $942.8 million on May 16. While the most recent April and May reports showed sales and volume decline in comparison to the same period last year, industry experts continue to show optimism in the market’s performance thus far.
