GUIDING PRINCIPLES:

HAB’s ANC strictly adheres to its guiding principles and requires that the leading nutrition scientists and institutions with which it collaborates do the same:

  • Value: The ANC will support research to discover and validate the role of fresh avocados in human health and nutrition on behalf of the Hass Avocado growers and importers.
     
  • Relevant: All nutrition research must be motivating and pertinent to the target consumer base in order to support the mission of HAB to grow avocado consumption in the U.S.
     
  • Science-Based: Nutrition scientists will abide by the highest standards of scientific inquiry, methods, analysis and ethics to guide research and design, including generation of rigorous hypotheses and the submission of manuscripts to peer-reviewed journals.
     
  • Transparency: All sponsored investigators and institutions will disclose HAB as a funding source or sponsor in all publications and/or presentations. Investigators will ensure communications are based on sound unbiased science and presented within context to avoid misrepresentation.
     
  • Resources: The ANC will share avocado science and related resources with the nutrition science community to maximize awareness and understanding of the benefits of fresh Hass avocados to human health and nutrition.       

 

PURPOSE:

These guiding principles have been developed to guide in scientific relationships and communication about the Hass Avocado Board (HAB)’s Avocado Nutrition Center (ANC). The ANC is the global leader in fresh Hass avocado nutrition science and serves as a cornerstone for HAB’s mission to drive long-term increased consumer demand for Hass avocados. In pursuit of this mandate, the ANC encourages and facilitates the generation of scientific knowledge that will contribute to understanding the unique health and wellness benefits associated with consuming fresh Hass avocados. The guiding principles outlined here are the foundations upon which the ANC and all of its scientific associations operate.
