Naturipe Avocado Farms has announced the appointment of Francisco Jose Del Rio Alamos as its new CEO.
In his new role, Del Rio will be responsible for pursuing investment opportunities and leading the development and management of the avocado business unit.
“As a farmer myself, I see great potential in Naturipe Avocado Farms,” said Del Rio. “In a way, I have been with Naturipe Avocado Farms since its inception. My family’s farm, San Jose Farms, is an affiliate of Baika LTDA, a Chilean grower-owner of Naturipe Avocado Farms. It brings me great joy to take on this new role and continue the journey with Naturipe.”
“We are excited to have Francisco lead this new strategic business unit,” noted Chris Coffman, president and CEO of Naturipe Brands. “He excels in creating a culture of innovation and provides a breadth of global and day-to-day operational experience to establish strategic planning for Naturipe Avocado Farms.”
