To mark Cinco de Mayo, Deliveroo has examined the avocado-eating habits of the residents of Ireland.
Cinco de Mayo, or the Fifth of May, is a holiday that celebrates the date of the Mexican army’s victory over France at the Battle of Puebla. It is a day when Mexicans celebrate their national identity with festivities and parties.
Data from Deliveroo has revealed that the food delivery firm saw a 62% increase in orders containing avocado in Ireland from 2020 to 2021, with restaurant orders including guacamole, avocado on toast, avocado salads and avocado in smoothies, as well as grocery orders containing avocados from Deliveroo grocery partners such as Mace and Spar.

According to Deliveroo, the people of Knocknacarra, in Galway, and Templeogue, in Dublin, purchase – on average – the equivalent of three avocados with each order, which is one more avocado than anywhere else in Ireland.
According to Deliveroo, orders containing avocado peak at 1pm, which suggests that the residents of Ireland prefer eating avocado at lunchtime.
