With spring just around the corner, more people are starting to think about outdoor activities, summer fun and getting healthier and more active. This makes it the perfect time to consider driving sales in the produce department through unique merchandising opportunities beyond the usual tips and tricks. Fresh organic bananas from Organics Unlimited are the perfect summer snack and here are some ways to let your customers know!

  • Make sure in-store displays are being cross-marketed with some of the other outdoor food items. Think of fruit salads with bananas, strawberries and other tropical fruits.

  • Consider hosting in-store events or partnering with community events to promote bananas. Some ideas are:

    • Host a healthy banana cooking class for adults and children. The internet is full of interesting and easy banana snack projects that are fun to make!

    • Host a mini farmer’s market right outside your store and display a tower of bananas that will attract customers.

    • Participate in local runs or other fitness events where bananas will benefit the athletes.

    • Print and display banana nutrition facts at your in-store displays. Bananas are the perfect pre and post workout snack and have a myriad of health benefits including boosting energy and contributing to muscle recuperation!

Organics Unlimited bananas make for a great on-the-go snack that is light, fresh and healthy. Due to their “just in time” method, Organics Unlimited harvests bananas at the time of order, making them the freshest bananas on the market. We are sure your customers will love incorporating our bananas into their spring and summer activities.
