Murrieta, CA - West Pak Avocado, Inc. of Murrieta, California is proud to announce the launch of The Avocado Family, a digital campaign for the global packer, shipper, and distributor of avocados.

As West Pak founders Randy Shoup and Galen Newhouse are preparing to retire, they will hand the reins of the company over to CEO Mario Pacheco, a former executive with Chiquita Banana. Built upon the founding duo’s strong ethics and focus on excellence and family values, the campaign will serve as a foundation for carrying on their legacy. The goal is to continue the company’s commitment to growing industry relationships, new ventures in global markets, industry innovation, and continued branding for the avocado, under the new management. The full transition in administration is set to take effect in early 2018.

To kick off The Avocado Family campaign, West Pak will introduce a new website ( and a mini-documentary video that will detail the organization’s humble beginnings, current innovation, and key stakeholders. The trailer for the video and a microsite will debut in time for the Produce Marketing Association (PMA) Fresh Summit in New Orleans on October 20-21, 2017 with a full launch slated for January 2018.

During PMA, West Pak will be exhibiting in booth #5319 where the avo-obsessed community is invited to drop by to meet The Avocado Family. Attendees can also snap a picture at the booth, share on social media using the hashtag #TheAvocadoFamily, and enter the Home Sweet Avo drawing for a chance to win avocado prizes.

“Things are evolving at West Pak as Randy and I look to retire,” said Co-founder Galen Newhouse. “With all of the dedicated people that we have in place and all of their years of experience in this industry, we firmly trust where they will take the business. West Pak will continue to be a family company, built on the foundation of strong ethics and a real sense of family, which is something that carries through from our team to our growers, distributors and customers alike.

Co-founder Randy Shoup chimed in, “We’ve been blessed to have good performance in business, but the true blessing is our people; Those who contribute and take ownership in what they do as if it was their own. The Avocado Family campaign will be a part of the legacy that we leave our team, part of our family for the past 35 years, and the foundation for the values that they will carry forward.”
