The Avocados From Mexico® Glow
“With its distinctive yellow-green glow, the Avocados From Mexico brand color instantly brings to mind the creamy avocado fruit native to Mexico. With its combination of a creamy yellow center, framed by an earthy green, it tells a story of the delicious flavor and the natural freshness of a heart-healthy ingredient1,” expressed Laurie Pressman, Vice-President, PANTONE Color Institute. “It represents a brand that aims to make everything better; one that invites you to join a joyful celebration and to live life to its fullest with the vibrancy inspired by the traditional spirit of Mexicanity.’
“Avocados From Mexico makes everything better and what’s better than a color with unmistakable energy you can feel and taste,” said Avocados From Mexico President and CEO, Alvaro Luque. “The Big Game remains the number one occasion where avocados and guacamole are served and prepared2, and this collection will spark goodness for those looking to enjoy their Big Game spreads in style!”
Avocados From Mexico has always leveraged the Big Game as a digital innovation playground, and this year is no exception. AFM is launching a multisensory marketing strategy that engages the senses to provide a personalized experience that connects consumers with the brand. In addition to the PANTONE® color, the brand is also partnering with amp sound branding to create AFM’s Sonic DNA®, an audible expression of the brand that incorporates core elements of the brand’s well-known jingle to evoke AFM’s joyful and energetic nature.
The Sonic DNA assets will come to life in the brand’s digital Big Game platform. When consumers visit, they will be invited to become immersed in digital brand experiences like recreating the signature AFM sound in their own meaningful and expressive ways and exploring delicious recipe inspiration for Big Game viewing parties.
“Brands are like people; they have multiple dimensions. Multisensory marketing gives us the opportunity to engage with avocado fans by sharing the essence of our brand in new, unexpected layers,” said Avocados From Mexico Vice President of Marketing and Innovation, Ivonne Kinser. “Through leveraging multiple visual, auditory, and digital tools, we are able to provide consumers with unique opportunities to connect more deeply with the AFM brand.”
