The ancient Maya and Aztecs already called this pear-shaped fruit »butter of the forest« many centuries ago, alluding to its smooth, buttery taste.
Our BIO PLANÈTE Avocado Oil is fair for life certified. The fruits are cultivated by small farmers in Central and West Kenya. Right there after the harvest, the flesh of the avocado is gently cold-pressed. This guarantees that the avocados’ precious nutrients – for instance its high vitamin E content – are fully preserved.
Due to its high smoke point of 158 °C/ 317 °F, avocado oil is ideal for baking, stir frying and pan frying. With its tender taste of fresh avocado, it brightens up salads, vinaigrette, and dips.
Current note: Due to supply shortages, in some cases we are forced to fall back on raw materials and ingredients that are not Fair Trade certified. However, these materials and ingredients still come 100% from sustainable organic agriculture and fully comply with our strict quality controls. Their exact origin is always indicated on the bottle label.
Fair Trade certified according to the Fair for Life standard. Visit www.fairforlife.org to learn more.

What does cold pressing mean?
"Cold pressing" assumes that no external heat is added. When we cold-press oils, the temperature is monitored and we ensure that no high temperatures are reached. We can therefore guarantee that the quality of the oil is not impaired.
What does "virgin" mean in the context of oils?
A virgin oil is a cooking oil which is obtained exclusively using mechanical processes without preheating the raw materials. It is not subjected to chemical or thermal treatment or to any other refinement process and thus preserves its authentic, natural taste and the essential components of the raw material. This also makes it suitable for eating raw.
