Rich in nutrients and oils, avocados became the superfood of dieters, sports stars and trendy eateries in the last decade. Being high in demand has meant the price has skyrocketed and that has spelt quick money for criminals cashing in on increasingly easy access to what some now call โ€œgreen goldโ€. With ready markets in towns and cities, itโ€™s in avo farming heartland where large-scale looting originates. Carte Blanche travels to Tzaneen in the Limpopo province where virtually every farmer has been affected and we meet the small but savvy army of private security and their bloodhounds that are taking the fight to the green gold grabbers.
