Avocados From Mexico To Score Big at Retail This Fall Football Season

DALLAS, Sept. 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Avocados From Mexico (AFM) ? the No. 1 selling brand of avocados in the U.S. ? is ensuring shoppers have the avocados they seek this fall football season with two new football-focused programs. The shopper and trade programs will inspire, delight and attract even more in-store attention to Avocados From Mexico across the nation, driving consumption of the beloved fruit this fall and winter season.

Football season marks the top occasion where avocados are served and prepared, and there are more than 600 football viewing occasions during a season. 1 Nearly half of all avocado eaters say they plan to eat avocados ? most often guacamole ? during those football games, making the season a key window for avocados in the United States.1 In fact, Mexican avocados are the only avocados that are available all year round making the Avocados From Mexico brand the market leader from October through December.  Since 2017, avocado consumption has grown 38% during the October-November-December time period.2 As a result of the brand's focus on fulfilling shoppers needs for more avocados during their favorite football activities, last year's growth during the OND months was up 15% between 2019 and 2020.2

This year, the brand is taking its strong football connection to the next level, with two national shopper programs that bring in the value of important CPG partners, drive traffic to store and offer valuable consumer prizes that will engage shoppers:

To further support retailer activities this fall, Avocados From Mexico is also debuting a cash retail incentive contest to support Guac the Tailgate. The contest is open to any retailer that orders and uses Avocado From Mexico display materials. Retailers can still participate by contacting their AFM regional director to order free displays. 3

"Football and avocados are inextricably linked ? it's just not a football party without fresh guacamole. As the only brand of avocados available year-round, we've been able to focus on this hard-to-tackle season to drive even more opportunity for avocado consumption during the October, November and December months," said Stephanie Bazan, Vice President of Trade & Market Development at Avocados From Mexico. "These new programs are some of the most engaging we've ever offered ? bringing even more excitement to avocados in store and beyond. Football is a national sporting pastime event which brings people together and Avocados From Mexico is at the center of these celebrations."
