Avocados from Mexico (AFM), the number one selling avocado in the U.S., today announced Maggie Jiménez as brand spokesperson in its first ever Hispanic campaign, “Echale.” Jiménez is a professional host, celebrity chef, lifestyle expert and mother, regularly hosting a cooking segment on Univision’s “Despierta América”. As a professional host, celebrity cook, and Hispanic lifestyle expert, Maggie Jimenez has promoted the importance of healthy eating habits and fun, flavorful food with brands such as Got Milk? and Kraft for more than 20 years. She is a fixture on Univision, regularly appearing with cooking segments on “Despierta América” and as a co-host on “Fashionometer.”


AFM’s “Echale” campaign coincides with the launch of AFM’s new Hispanic website, AguacatesdeMexico.com. The site features the “Mi Avo Club,” an online community where Hispanic avocado fans can connect with exclusive promotions, recipes, tips and lifestyle content. To generate awareness and excitement around the launch of the website, consumers who sign up for the “Mi Avo Club” will be entered for a chance to win a new tablet. Additionally, everyone registered will receive a complimentary e-reader from Jiménez featuring exclusive recipes. Avocados from Mexico will be launching a digital and mobile campaign on key social platforms targeting the Nueva Latina in an effort to generate awareness and sign-ups to the Mi Avo Club.

AFM has developed in-store promotional elments supporting its new spokesperson and the increasing demand for avocados that retailers are seeing from their customers. These efforts will be concentrated in key Hispanic accounts in top Hispanic markets in Spring 2015.
