Australia has too many avocados so pigs dig in

Australia has too many avocados, and some 'very lucky' pigs are getting to devour them.

It's reported that strict lockdowns coupled with a 'blockbuster' harvest this year mean demand for the fruit is nowhere close to supply.

The Chair of Avocados Australia has told the Sunday Times that the solution is 'not great optics' but pigs absolutely love avocados.

Growers in Australia expect to output over 120,000 tonnes of the instagram-friendly fruit this year, but prices have plummeted to just 60 European cent each.
