Fresh California Avocados Add Sizzle to Summer Menus




Irvine CA (July 2007)—From June through September, operators can capitalize on one of summer’s greatest pleasures: cool, lush Fresh California Avocados paired with bright, sun-ripened tomatoes.  A traditional, but endless versatile combination, fresh avocados and tomatoes can anchor an entire seasonal menu, beginning with Smoky California Avocado, Shrimp and White Bean Gazpacho.             

When it comes to appeal, recent chain menu research from Food Beat™, Inc.* leaves little doubt that Fresh California Avocados are popular with customers.  Food Beat records a +20.5% increase in avocado menu mentions between 2006 and 2005, making 2006 the third consecutive year of over 20% growth.
