How do you spell clementines? C-U-T-I-E.
Cuties clementines are now the official citrus of Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort, a designation that gives Cuties exclusive clementine access to sprawling family-themed entertainment complexes in California and Florida.
Cuties will be available from fruit carts, grab-and-go locations that sell fruit, and at quick-service restaurants, and Cuties branding will be introduced in Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disneyland Resort, according to a news release from Sun Pacific Marketing, Pasadena, Calif., which grows, ships and markets the Cuties-brand clementines.
“Cuties and Disney Parks is a natural fit because so many kids and parents love both Cuties and Disney,” Berne Evans, Sun Pacific CEO, said in the release. “Cuties are a nutritious, sweet snack that are easy for families to enjoy on-the-go while they create lifelong memories at Disney Parks. We’re excited to be a part of that iconic vacation experience.”
The number of Disney properties involved in the agreement is substantial, including eight theme parks (including two water parks) and more than three dozen hotels.
“Disney Parks works to create magical, unforgettable experiences for families in everything we do,” Carlos Castro, vice president of Disney Corporate Alliances, said in the news release. “This includes aligning with brands that families know and love. We are happy to be providing Cuties as a healthy food option that the whole family can enjoy.”
Sun Pacific will be discussing the new alliance at booth No. 1385 at the Produce Marketing Association’s Fresh Summit Oct. 19-20 in Orlando, Fla.
