Spanish Avo was born from an idea that Manuel Navas had more than 20 years ago; a period in which olive cultivation predominated throughout the area of La Axarquia (Malaga) in southern Spain, where he wanted to try out new crops that suited the tropical climate of the area.
Hence, the annual production of avocados was born! Today the idea has been expanded and is now looked after by his nephew Carlos Navas. Together with Yusa Battal, who became friends with him in London in 2014, when they worked together in the world of hospitality. It was then that his idea of taking the avocado from Nerja and Frigiliana (Malaga) to London, where there was a large consumption of this fruit.
The goal of Spanish Avo is to maintain the tradition of avocado picking that Manuel Navas started by taking it from the fields of southern Spain directly to the kitchens of an international market.
The Avoman concept was born during the difficult pandemic period. Yusa and Carlos had to stay tenacious as they could not supply restaurants while the hospitality business stopped in 2020.
They found, however, an opportunity to work directly with the farmers and managed to open a brand-new fruit and vegetable store in Islington. That store now supplies products that have been carefully picked and chosen as Class 1 products.
A year after the Islington opening, they now have an amazing opportunity to open another store in Hackney Road. The 245 Hackney Road branch of Avoman will open in February 2022. They truly believe this will be a game-changer for the brand and future of Avoman!
Talking with Avo family member Bea, who works in their N1 shop, she says “We all met here in London, working in the hospitality sector. Busting our buts together in the brunch shift you really build a bond, and we could see how much of want there is for quality ripe avocados. Coming from Spain, we knew we could deliver!”
These tight buddies, composed of the two boys, Yusa and Carlos, along with the beautiful Bea, have worked the hard graft together. And now supply a growing number of the most fabulous restaurants in London. Getting rave reviews from top chefs, praising their delicious produce, as well as their loyal Upper Street customers. Now with an impressive-looking new store popping up in Hackney soon, we are sure there is a bright ‘avo-green’ future for them all!
