Emily Murracas, Mucci’s Marketing Manager, Discusses New Tomato-X
KINGSVILLE, ON- Mucci Farms’ latest proprietary product offers its own eating experience, with a capital “X.”
The company’s new Tomato-X is described as an exotic tomato bursting with extreme flavor, standing on its own as a strong snacking tomato with a crisp bite followed by a fresh burst of flavor.
“Our whole team from grower/sales and marketing agreed the features of this tomato are incredibly unique from its appearance, its flavour profile, to even going a step further by saying it presents an ‘experience,’” Emily Murracas, Mucci’s Marketing Manager, tells me. “It possesses somewhat of an “X – factor” and the consumers need to be intrigued by its name, enticed on the shelf, and educated when in hand.”
The sleek packaging achieves this, capturing the eye with a cool X and conveying all the shopper needs to know. The transparent Top Seal still leaves room to allow the intriguingly red-orange tomato speak for itself, with another unique packaging option.
“We also created a more unique option for a cardboard band with laser cut-outs and/or clear film band to maximize the real-estate but still offer good product visibility, as well as a tamper evident seal,” Emily explains.
Overall, Mucci is confident that the look portrays the unique, premium feel of the Tomato-X itself, while the white and blue colors portray a healthy, fitness-like vibe.
You can see this new product at next month's United Fresh Produce Expo, where it will be featured in the Product Showcase.
