Avocados From Peru and California Walnuts superfood tastings will launch in the U.S. and Europe summer 2018

Washington D.C., May 21, 2018 – Avocados From Peru is thrilled to join forces with California Walnuts to promote two of the world’s most potent superfoods through the first ever in-store tasting collaboration between two nutrient-rich powerhouse foods at Costco, Sam’s Club and Walmart in the U.S. and Costco in Europe with the World Avocado Organization.

“We are very excited to be partnering with the world-renowned California Walnut Board,” said Xavier Equihua, CEO and President of the Peruvian Avocado Commission. “This is especially important to us as we are celebrating World Avocado Month in June in both the U.S. and Europe. This collaboration will allow consumers to taste various nutrient-dense and delicious recipes made with delectable Peruvian avocados and California Walnuts –two supreme high-quality superfoods. Walnuts are the only nut that contains a significant amount of omega-3’s and Peruvian avocados contain nearly 20 vitamins and minerals, and are a great source of healthy fats.”

The brands will showcase vibrant and invigorating summer recipes including a walnut avocado salad, walnut avocado toast and walnut avocado yogurt with honey. The demos will begin on June 15th, just in time for Walmart Wellness Day –billed as America’s largest health fair event.
