Eden Prairie, MN (October 4, 2013) The Big Easy will be home to the big opportunity as C.H. Robinson will showcase a new brand and packaging during this year’s Produce Marketing Association’s Fresh Summit Expo from Oct. 18-20 in New Orleans. The new product offerings and innovative solutions are designed to drive fresh produce sales.

As an industry leader in the tropical space, C.H. Robinson provides fresh products and continually expands on their portfolio of sourcing services. To unify its year-round tropical offerings C.H. Robinson introduces Happy Chameleon™, a global label that encompasses pineapples, mangos and limes. The brand’s attributes are colorful and bright in order to evoke positive mood associations among consumers towards tropical produce.

“We wanted to convey a light, fresh, friendly and fun feel to the brand,” said Drew Schwartzhoff, director of Marketing in Sourcing. “Happy Chameleon™ was chosen as a bright and vibrant symbol whose colors change like the seasons. The stamped logo is contemporary with bright orange and green colors.”

As the exclusive marketer of Green Giant® Fresh avocados, C.H. Robinson will feature new avocado packaging at the Green Giant® Fresh Booth #3225. The new pouch style bags hold three large Hass avocados and include an on-pack QR code used to engage consumers by providing easy mobile access to a variety of avocado recipes and storage and usage tips.
