Growers Can Help Promote California Avocados with a Simple Selfie

  • May 24, 2017

California avocado fans aren’t shy about their love for the fresh fruit — they eagerly share photos of their favorite California avocado meals or selfies of themselves in front of California Avocado Commission (CAC) posters on their favorite social media platforms. This season, the Commission is asking California avocado growers to share their love of California avocados too. CAC is encouraging California avocado growers to help promote this season’s crop by snapping a photo of themselves — and other friends and family — in front of the Commission’s wild postings.

The wild postings, which evoke the California lifestyle and pair the natural beauty of the state with California avocados, feature the artwork of California artist Michael Schwab. The postings, — located in Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco — will be on display through June 25.

It’s easy for growers to share a bit of California avocado “love.” Simply snap a selfie in front of one of the wild postings and then email the photos to Zac Benedict, CAC online marketing director, at zbenedict@avocado.org. Those who submit photos will receive their choice of a pair of California Avocado socks or a California Avocado trucker hat.

Please include the following information in the email:

  • Names of the people in the photos
  • Mailing address
  • Grove location
  • Wild posting location
  • Permission to use the photos
  • Choice of California avocado socks or trucker hat

The Commission also encourages growers to share their selfies on their own social media channels with the hashtag @CA_Avocados.
