Since the introduction of Cabilfrut S.A. in 1989, it has had a very important participation in the accelerated development of the province of Petorca, and specifically in the district of Cabildo, where since that year, the company started the production, commercialization and exports of avocado to the United States.
Both, the location and the climate have been fundamental aspects for the development of this and other fruit products.
