Shan Orchard's philosophy is to play a vital role in  Myanmar Agriculture Renaissance.  We believe that the beautiful region of Southern Shan State provides a perfect climate and landscape for avocados.  

The avocado is a rather unique fruit.  While most fruit consists primarily of carbohydrate, avocado is high in healthy fats.  Numerous studies show that it has powerful health benefits.

Current research suggests that many food supplements are not an effective way of obtaining nutrients.  A 10ml (2 tsp) serving of extra virgin cold pressed avocado oil provides 20% of the recommended daily allowance of Vitamin E.  Extra virgin avocado oil has been proven to be one of the healthiest and most versatile of culinary oils.


The rich smooth taste enhances the flavors of delicate foods, and its high burn point makes it the best choice for healthy pan frying and high heat cooking.


It is perfect with salads, vegetables, in smoothies, and baking with extraordinary list of health benefits -- including high levels of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, Vitamin E, Omegas 6 and 9, lutein, alpha and beta carotene, and many more.



Hass is the most commonly grown avocado variety in the world. Fruit has high oil content and a very nutty, rich taste. Flesh has smooth texture and thick skin casing. Fruit ripening is between September-February in Southern Shan State. Trees have spreading and open habit of medium height. 

Hass is the main varieties grown in New Zealand, and it accounts for 95% of plantings. Out of all avocados consumed around the world, Hass makes up 80% of consumption.  

We have brought this New Zealand and California Hass varieties to Myanmar for the export markets throughout ASEAN and premium domestic markets.  Our main target markets are China, Japan, Indonesia, Korea, Singapore, and Malaysia.  Domestic clients will include Citymart and Metro Grocery Store Chains.

Global demand shows high growth for avocado oils up to 2023.  Since the avocado supply in Myanmar is mostly local varieties which cannot be exported, Shan Orchard decided to take advantage of the opportunity by extracting oil to keep up with the increasing international demand for avocado oil.


After considerable research in Myanmar, we selected Heho in Southern Shan State as the base for our avocado oil production.  Heho provides easy access for production, supply chain management, and tourism.  Heho Airport will become an international airport over the next 5 years. 

In 2020, we will begin our oil operations in War Yone Bin village near Heho International Airport by sourcing from smallholders throughout Southern Shan State. With the target of 200 smallholders supplying us with local avocados, we are planning a production of 200MT of avocado oil per year.
