DALLAS – Avocados From Mexico (AFM), announced that the Fanwich campaign will be launched for its 4th consecutive year, running February 26 through March 30, 2018.

Designed to drive excitement and avocado consumption during the college basketball season, Avocados From Mexico will inspire shoppers to turn ordinary sandwiches, burgers and hot dogs into something extraordinary with guac mashes, fueling their basketball viewing experience.

The Fanwich program will be promoted through a variety of marketing efforts, including Avocados From Mexico partnering with Smithfield Bacon and Anytime Favorites Ham as they provide the perfect solution to maximize the flavor of any handheld meal with recipes for delicious guac mashes, toppings & spreads.

“Game days are the times for fans to come together to root for their favorite team, and this experience usually includes a great spread of delicious dishes, including sandwiches, burgers and more,” said Maggie Bezart-Hall, Vice President of Trade & Promotion, AFM. “By leveraging our high volumes of avocados following the Big Game, we intend to strengthen and expand the core usage of Avocados From Mexico on handhelds this college basketball season.”

The No. 1 selling avocado brand in the U.S. is driving consumption with a nationally-integrated shopper program, including dynamic in-store displays, big consumer savings, and digital support. AFM’s eye-catching display bins and signage will serve to showcase how Avocados From Mexico is the key to adding flavor to sandwiches, burgers, hot dogs and other handheld game day bites. Its robust paid social program features Facebook and Instagram posts, allowing AFM to connect with Fanwich Fanatics anywhere. The campaign continues online as avo-lovers can learn more about the Fanwich program and discover some delicious avo-recipes and how-to videos at Consumers can also save big this campaign with a digital consumer savings offer of $1.50 off purchases of Avocados From Mexico and Smithfield via

AFM is also making it easy for retailers to promote the campaign by offering support through various merchandising options and retail-specific programming.

To build brand awareness and presence, 2,000 Kroger, Supervalu, Wakefern and Albertsons Division Stores will highlight the Fanwich promotion through ShelfTalk and FloorTalk merchandising options.

Taking efforts a step further, Avocados From Mexico is helping shoppers elevate their game day sandwiches this college basketball season by creating flavor-packed sandwich combinations with Smithfield’s. By engaging shoppers with easy, holistic game day solutions, like mouthwatering guac mashes with Smithfield Bacon and Anytime Favorites Ham, AFM is promoting the consumption of Avocados From Mexico, while driving basket ring for retailers.
