"Avocados From Mexico bring good taste and good times, and that's especially true when it comes to college basketball season," said Stephanie Bazan, Vice President of Trade and Market Development at Avocados From Mexico. "Mexican handhelds—including tacos, burritos, and quesadillas—are a top core usage for avocados, and our partnership with Mission Foods for Taco Tip Off creates a great opportunity to reinforce this and motivate shoppers to add avocados to their Mexican handheld dishes."

According to a press release, the promotional program includes engaging in-store displays, consumer savings, sweepstakes, and recipe inspiration designed to drive avocado sales and basket size during the height of college basketball season.
"College basketball is the perfect occasion to leverage in-store merchandising and online engagement to inspire shoppers to make their own taco creations at home," said Sathish Mohanraju, Vice President of Marketing and Trade Marketing at Mission Foods. "Pairing Mission brand tortillas with Avocados From Mexico creates a powerhouse that will drive even more purchases and make every game day even better."
