Mexican Avocados to be Promoted During the Super Bowl

Mexican Avocados to be Promoted During the Super Bowl

AvocadoBy the time the 2015 Super Bowl reaches the end of the first quarter on Feb. 1, at least 125 million people will have the opportunity to see a fresh produce item advertised along with the top consumer brands in the world.

For the first time ever, a fresh produce item will share the spotlight with nachos, beer, colas and other products that typically fill the advertising space of the National Football League’s annual championship game.  This year, a 30-second spot touting Avocados From Mexico will share the limelight.   The commercial for Avocados From Mexico, the number-one selling avocado in the United States, is being kept under wraps until it debuts at the end of the first quarter.

Soon after the advertisement airs, Avocados From Mexico will launch an aggressive social media campaign designed to get game-watchers in the Mexico spirit, and will increase awareness that Avocados from Mexico are always in season and pair perfectly with their football celebrations.

In January and February 2015, the amount of avocados imported to the United States is expected to be more than 285 million pounds, with Mexican avocados leading the way as the top importer and the top seller.

Eating guacamole pairs very well with football-watching and there has been promoting of Mexican avocados and guacamole in many different venues including national consumer advertising, in-store displays, in-store radio, in coupons and in public relations efforts.  The campaign also is driven by the promotions teams of Avocados From Mexico and the Old El Paso line of consumer product goods, including taco shells and taco-making kits.
