However, their taste isn’t the only benefit. According to the Avocado Institute, Mexican Hass Avocados contribute to national and state economies in major ways. In fact, the thriving industry results in $11.2 billion in U.S. economic output while creating 58,299 U.S. jobs.

Americans aren’t the only ones who stand to benefit; 78,000 direct and permanent jobs are created in Mexico along with 300,000 indirect and seasonal jobs, adding a touch of goodness to both nations.
