DALLAS, March 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Avocados From Mexico (AFM), today announced its partnership with Mission® Foods, the leading tortilla brand in the U.S. to launch "Taco Tip Off," its latest promotional program in support of the basketball championships. "Taco Tip Off" is designed to leverage retail excitement around basketball season and expand shopper consumption of tacos, burritos, quesadillas, etc. The program combines targeted in-store merchandising focused on tacos with widespread consumer savings through April 14th.

According to Numerator, 88% of avocado households also purchased tortillas in the past year1, making this partnership the perfect occasion to bring AFM and Mission® Foods together in the ultimate tasty taco experience. "Avocado grocery shopping trips are more valuable with tortillas. Average avocado basket rings are 1.6X greater with tortillas2. Total grocery basket ring with avocados is $50.44 and $79.05 with avocados and tortillas3.  We're excited to partner with Mission® Foods and give basketball fans a game-winning combo," said Stephanie Bazan, Vice President of Trade & Market Development at Avocados From Mexico.

The final game of the basketball championship season is the 3rd most viewed sporting event in the U.S. after the Big Game with strong viewership leading up to the final game4. "This sporting event is the perfect occasion to leverage in-store basketball championship merchandising and create an event that will drive impulse purchase for avocados as fans stock up for their in-home viewing gatherings," said Bazan.
