“Avocado India Economy Development Foundation” (Henceforth ‘Avocado India’) is an effort initiated in Nashik for the benefits of the community. Our experience suggests that there are various organizations which are already supporting & helping growth & cultivation of different species of fruits & vegetables all over India. But whenever a new organization takes birth, it has to pass through various difficulties & hence to avoid any such future hassles for Avocado, Avocado India thought it is the right time we launch an effort to form organization for Avocado Fruits economy in India in 2009-10.

Avocado India Economy Development Foundation, Nashik is a section 8 of non-profit organization established under companies act in July 2023, It’s working area is all India level as we observed the growth of avocados in various parts of Kerala, Maharashtra, Sikkim & Tamilnadu.
