Avocados From Mexico has a targeted line-up of retail promotions this fall designed to build the category and spur avocado lovers to “Savor Every Moment.”
“Our new communications platform, ‘Savor Every Moment’ and this year’s programs are focused on enhancing the shopper experience and retail efforts,” Stephanie Bazan, senior market development director of Avocados From Mexico, said in a news release. “We will help remind consumers how the addition of fresh avocados can turn every meal and every occasion into moments they can savor.”
To celebrate the “Savor Every Moment” launch and highlight the fall football season, AFM returns this year with the “Tastiest Tailgate” program, in partnership with Lime-A-Rita.
Starting Sept. 16 — National Guacamole Day — Avocados From Mexico will be distributing 700,000 coupons via Facebook to help encourage consumers to celebrate, according to the release.

The “Tastiest Tailgate” program, running through Dec. 31, offers store merchandising, consumer savings, in-store radio, digital support, and retail-specific programming, according to the release.
Avocados from Mexico is introducing new a joint-bin display, with side stackers for Lime-A-Ritas. The bins work as a destination for game-time snacks and beverages in produce sections or perimeter of the department, according to the release.
