AVO Avocado Oil Spread

The latest butter alternative to hit supermarket shelves is AVO spread.  Made with 20% avocado oil, the new spread claims to have 45% less fat and 55% less salt than butter.  Approved by the National Heart Foundation, AVO spread is being marketed as the ‘only cholesterol free easily spreadable spread on the market… comprising less than 1% trans fats’.


AVO is designed for daily consumption, and can be spread onto bread or toast as well as used in cooking, just like margarine or butter.  It contains vitamins A and D, and has received ‘red tick approval’ from the National Hear Foundation.  Tammy Fenner, creator and Managing Director of Avo Pty Ltd said “Having this recognition from the Heart Foundation means that AVO has undergone extensive testing to ensure you are getting a truly healthy product through a strict standards process.

“As Australian obesity levels intensify there is an escalating demand for more wholesome products.  By replacing your normal spread with AVO you are choosing a healthier alternative without having to sacrifice flavour or cost.”

AVO joins other spread alternatives claiming to be healthier, such as those made from nuts or olive oil.  AVO is available from Woolworths and Coles supermarkets nationally.

    Please help.
    We switched to Avo spread recently but now we have found that our local Coles and Woolworths do not stock it any more.
    We live in Middle Park, Queensland 4074
    Could you let us know where we can buy our favourite spread.

    Kind regards

    Avo margarine is great, but I cannot buy it now at any of the Coles/Woolies stores in the Merrylands/Parramatta area.
    Any idea where I can buy it in Sydney.

    regards Rex
