Avodogs at the ballpark and avocado toast with chimps

In celebration of World Avocado Month, Avocados From Peru is sponsoring two consumer-facing activations: free Peruvian avocado topping to Orioles fans at the game on Father’s Day (June 17) and Peru at the Zoo at Baltimore Zoo throughout July.afp

AFP’s renewed partnership with Entercom Baltimore (formerly CBS Radio) brings a free avocado topping to the June 17 Orioles game. AFP will have three tables set up around Oriole Park handing out free Peruvian avocado topping to fans, who can try the Peruvian avocados topping by itself or enjoy it on top of their purchased food.

Peru at the Zoo will take place at the Maryland Zoo throughout July and will include AFP signage at the zoo and radio traffic support sponsorships on all Entercom Baltimore radio stations. Additionally, AFP prize packs will be given away in an exciting text-to-win campaign that will include gift cards, zoo admission tickets and other premiums courtesy of AFP.

AFP will also be hosting Breakfast with the Chimps at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore on July 14, featuring delicious avocado toast. Anyone who visits the zoo that day will be given a delicious avocado in a customized AFP ripening bag as they exit the Zoo.

“Our Peru at the Zoo activation is the first of its kind,” said Xavier Equihua, chief executive officer and president of the Peruvian Avocado Commission. “It will engage consumers of all ages and spark significant excitement around America’s favorite summer avocado. We are also thrilled to be renewing our partnership with Entercom Baltimore this year given the success this initiative has achieved in past years.”
