Put simply, Atkinson describes PR in the fresh produce industry as “forming relationships with key media influencers to increase awareness about the industry and drive content that supports the need for increased demand of fresh fruits and vegetables.” But the concept is a bit more complicated than that, as you’ll quickly see in the post.
Good PR should go beyond simply promoting new products or publicizing recalls or lawsuits. Instead, DMA Solutions says that a company’s PR efforts should tell stories about the farmers or “any philanthropic outreach by the brand, ways that the brand helps its consumers through content, produce in food service, food trends, and why we’re a key player,” and so on.
By utilizing these good PR practices to drive marketing and vice-versa, you will find that PR can be an effective tool to increase awareness, and subsequently, sales.
