Grocery shoppers in the UK are now spending more on avocados than oranges according to the latest Nielson ratings and a survey by The Grocer.
Avocados’ soaring popularity is attributed to celebrity chefs like Nigella Lawson. There’s an “avocado craze” among health-conscions Britons. Avocados are showing up in many dishes as well as in smoothes and even on toast.
