11 May 2016 --- Tesco is launching avocado as a spread, as it looks to tap into the growing demand for the fruit variety.

According to the supermarket giant, in the last year demand for avocados at Tesco has grown by 40 percent.

Tesco spreads buyer Dean Rawlinson said: “Shoppers can’t get enough of avocados which have become extremely popular on account of their great taste, versatility in food and drinks as well as for their nutritional benefits.”

“We’re always looking for innovative new avocado products for customers such as the Avozilla or frozen avocado which we launched last year.”

“With this, the UK’s first ever avocado spread, our product developers have created a new and exciting way for shoppers to benefit from the excellent health credentials of avocados in even more ways.”

Avocados are also popular in the form of guacamole, which is an essential part of Mexican cuisine and also as an ingredient in smoothies.

Other Tesco avocado products include: finest* Chipotle, Quinoa and Avocado Salad; Squeezy Guacamole Sauce; and even an Avocado and Oatmeal Facemask.

Also being launched this week is another healthy spread, made with coconut oil.

Both spreads, which are dairy free, will cost £1.20 and will be available in 400 Tesco stores across the UK.
