WATSONVILLE, CALIF. – The California Strawberry Commission is bringing the love with its latest marketing venture.
The commission’s “Love, Strawberries” campaign is an ode to California strawberries, the hardworking farmers and farm workers behind the berry and the fruit’s many benefits, according to the commission.
The new message will be used across the commission’s social channels and at key moments in the year that will elevate versatile ways to celebrate and experience the heart-shaped fruit beyond traditional uses. From partnerships to activations, the program will take consumers on a behind-the-scenes journey and will feature the stories of the people who grow and harvest the berries.
“The ‘Love, Strawberries’ campaign is designed to tap into and celebrate the love that consumers have for this vibrant, sweet and juicy berry, and the millions of ways people enjoy them every day,” said Chris Christian, senior vice president of the California Strawberry Commission. “It will also connect consumers to the farm and illustrate the extraordinary care that goes into growing California strawberries."
In support of the campaign, California Strawberries will hold its first ever song contest in search of a one-of-a-kind jingle for the brand. Beginning April 1, strawberry enthusiasts will have a chance to be part of the process and enter their own jingles for a cash prize of $10,000 and a paid trip to California.
Throughout the year, California Strawberries will continue to orchestrate moments, both in-person and across the @castrawberries social media platforms, to deliver fun and engaging programs that educate and underscore strawberries' nutritional health benefits.
