17 Dec Concord Foods Announces New Chiquita™ Banana Pop Kit
Brockton, Mass. (December 17, 2019) – Concord Foods, well known for being a premier provider of produce companion products, is excited to announce it has expanded its partnership with Chiquita® with a second product, the Chiquita™ Banana Pop Kit. This new offering was created as a way for grocery retailers’ produce departments to capitalize on the continued increase in shopper demand for premium, clean label snack products.
“We are excited to be partnering with Chiquita once again. Chiquita® is the #1 preferred banana brand in the U.S., so it’s a wonderful opportunity to partner on complimentary products, such as the Chiquita™ Banana Pop Kit and the Chiquita™ Banana Bread Mix. Together, we have built the bread mix into the #1 selling bread mix in the nation and we look forward to the Banana Pop Kit being equally as successful! said Samantha McCaul, Marketing Manager.
The Chiquita™ Banana Pop Kit makes delicious chocolate banana pops, as well as dipped fruit such as chocolate dipped strawberries and pineapple slices. It is made with real dark chocolate and no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. Each kit can make eight banana pops and includes a pouch of chocolate and wooden sticks. Consumers must purchase four fresh bananas or their fruit of choice.
“The Chiquita Banana Pop Kit is ideal for merchandising with bananas in produce departments as each kit will also sell four bananas. We have plans for increased cross promotion during key sales periods such as Memorial Day and July 4th” added Samantha.
The Chiquita Banana Pop Kit will be available in cases of 24 units. The suggested retail price is $2.79. Retailers are encouraged to book orders now with the Concord sales team at 508-580-1700. Shipping will start January 6th, 2020.
