GROW Month is almost here and now is the time to start planning a spectacular banana display. The display campaign starts on September 1, 2020. Displays must be up for a minimum of 1 week during September. Entries will be judged by an independent committee based on the following criteria:
o  Show GROW bananas with labels clearly visible
o  Use of Vote GROW 2020 campaign theme
o  Highlighting of GROW program and what it means
o  Creativity
Winners will be chosen and announced on October 15, 2020. A grand prize will be awarded as well as prizes for each distributor involved and all participating stores. That means you will be rewarded just by participating!

Remember, it’s an election year and displays should highlight our current campaign: Vote GROW 2020. Thanks to your support, GROW bananas have been giving back to the farming communities of Mexico and Ecuador since 2005. Your customers will know that voting GROW this fall with their organic banana purchases continues to support and build this fairly traded program. We have included some display ideas to help you get in the GROW spirit:

  • Emphasize/highlight of the following themes in the booth display:
  • GROW means fairly traded
  • GROW means education
  • GROW means environmental responsibility
  • GROW means health and wellness

  • Poll-Tested, Appetite-Approved
  • Who hasn’t eaten one?
  • Freshest tasting banana
  • Easy to eat: mobile, eat it on the go
  • Good any time of day:
  • Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
  • Morning, Afternoon, Evening
  • Makes a great snack
