With the claim “Ambrosia, te va divina” (Ambrosia, you’re divine), the Ambrosia ™ apple brand has launched its first television advertising campaign in Spain with a 20-second spot, which is being broadcast nationwide on the main networks. This campaign, which will be active until November 29, aims to achieve greater brand awareness of Ambrosia ™ apples in Spanish homes.

In this commercial, Ambrosia ™ stages the day-to-day life of a Spanish family, promoting their apples with naturalness, dynamism and freshness. The representation of everyday scenes enables Ambrosia ™ apples to be positioned as a quality, healthy and versatile product, which has its place in every moment of our lives.

Meanwhile, Ambrosia ™ presents through this new television campaign, its first image change with which it wants to establish its notoriety in the international market and reach as many consumers as possible. Consumers will therefore soon be able to discover a renewed logo consisting of a halo of gradient colours.

The halo is the result of the fusion of the two main elements of the brand, which are its symbol and the colour gradient, characteristic of the variety. The brand update also affects the brand’s slogan, which becomes “… Mmmbrosia. Sweet by Nature ”to“ … Mmmbrosia ”.

With this renewed image, Ambrosia ™ aims to build a stronger and more attractive brand identity to stand out in the fresh produce market and place itself even more in the minds of consumers. Ambrosia ™ will release its new image in the coming weeks both in its packaging and in its products as well as in its different corporate elements.

Ambrosia apples: pre-season optimism

AMBROSIA web news

Despite forecasts of a 20% fall in production from last year, Rivoira and VI.P – Val Venosta are upbeat about the prospects for the start of the 2017/18 season. The two organisations have been working in partnership since 2013 as the exclusive producers of Ambrosia™ apples in Europe.

Executive manager Marco Rivoira said, “A very hot and dry summer has obviously affected average sizes and, as with other varieties, they are noticeably smaller. However, we don’t expect this to affect the market as we have an intrinsically high quality product and there is a shortage of European apples. Also, last year we had a successful launch of our Baby Ambrosia™ in 1 kg bags for the domestic market and in 18kg bushels for export. So, we are not worried if we obtain more production of this size.”

Fabio Zanesco, marketing manager of VI.P –Val Venosta, said, “Our production is steadily growing with our new plantations. But due to the April/May frosts, we still aren’t reaching our potential. In any case, with our high-altitude production zones, we weren’t so affected by the hot summer and we had sufficient water, meaning we were able to obtain a decent sized product.” 

With the new season about to commence, the Rivoira group’s Ambrosia™ apples will be available everywhere from 19-20 September, while the apples grown in Val Venosta are still on the trees and will be ready from the middle of October.  

As for the firms’ international marketing strategy, Rivoira said, “Together with VI.P. we drew up a plan during Asia Fruit Logistica in Hong Kong. Since production is lower than expected, we will be maintaining our current sales channels with the Ambrosia™ and Gold Rosé™ brands and working on consolidating our partnerships with our most loyal customers in Spain. Naturally, at the beginning of the season, there have been a lot of requests from new sales outlets wishing to introduce Ambrosia.”

Zanesco adds, “The decision to focus mainly on sales this season seems a natural one to make and we also have the opportunity to work with several new clients for whom we will set aside volumes in line with our a common project. I must emphasise however that this doesn’t mean we won’t be innovating or thinking about the future. In fact, we will soon be announcing developments in our packaging, distribution and communication.”

VI.P focuses on technology and quality service

VI.P has 7 cooperatives and 1,730 producers who work in the Venosta Valley in the Italian Alps.

The Horticultural and Fruit Co-Operatives Association, Val Venosta (VI.P), has noteworthy innovations such as BIOgraphy, a traceability and transparency system by means of which the end customer can consult the website www.biography.vip.coop to find the farmers that have grown every one of the apples from VI.P’s organic line and where the fruit comes from.

As for the rest of its production, a QR code on its apple labels and on the back of its packaging links smartphones and tablets to the website www.lookbehind.vip.coop, where videos and texts on where each piece of fruit comes from are available.

In addition, VI.P is working on expanding its range of club varieties, including apples like Kanzi©, Envy© and Ambrosía©.

Furthermore, it is keeping up its investments in maintenance and improving structures, automating the third warehouse within the association of cooperatives and installing a new waxing line for the red varieties to add to the three existing ones.

VI.P has 7 cooperatives and 1,730 producers who work in the Venosta Valley in the Italian Alps.

Every year it harvests an average of 350,000 tons of Val Venosta apples, its main product, distributing them among 50 international markets, most notably Italy (which accounts for 50% of the produce), Germany, Scandinavia, eastern countries, North Africa and the Middle East, where it plans to continue to expand its penetration.

Spain accounts for 7-8% of VI.P sales.
