Cinco de Mayo is a Cause for Engagement for Concord Foods

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

Brockton, Mass.– Concord Foods, makers of Concord Foods Guacamole Mix and Concord Foods Salsa Seasoning Mix, announces plans for celebrating Cinco de Mayo with their engaged website audience, social media fans, blogger friends and promotional partners.

The holiday, celebrated across the United States and in a small region of Mexico, has become an appreciated day to gather with friends and family and enjoy Mexican and Southwestern inspired foods.  With the day landing on Sunday this year, the California Avocado Commission expects avocado consumption alone to reach 87.3 million pounds in theUnited States.

Concord Foods is the maker of leading packaged guacamole mixes which are available in a variety of flavors depending on the region.  Each flavor features a unique blend of seasoning that, when added to fresh avocados, creates perfect Guacamole in minutes.  Also getting promotional attention during our Cinco de Mayo celebration, are Concord Foods Salsa Mixes, which are available in mild and hot varieties.  Both products are marketed by grocers in the produce aisle, adjacent to the fresh avocados and tomatoes.  

According to Charles Olins, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Concord Foods, “we’re sharing over two dozen Cinco de Mayo related recipes that use Concord Foods’ produce-related mixes and flavors with our fan base, encouraging our blogger friends to test our recipes or create their own and sponsoring seasoning mix giveaways for the two weeks leading up to Cinco de Mayo.” 

Concord Foods Guacamole Mixes and Salsa Seasoning Mixes are available in 18 packs and 144 pack floor shippers. Distribution channels include retail grocery stores, mass merchandisers and club stores in theU.S.
