Sun World Celebrates Earth Day with “Better Farms. Better Flavor.” Brand Promise

May 15, 2017

Bakersfield, Calif. – Grape category leader Sun World International, LLC honored Earth Day 2017 with the launch of a new brand promise: Better Farms. Better Flavor.

The brand promise was developed after extensive consumer focus groups, shop-alongs and survey research determining target grape consumers’ purchase influences.

“The Better Farms. Better Flavor. promise communicates our ability and desire to deliver what consumers told us they seek most: consistently delicious grapes grown with care for the Earth and the hardworking people that make that flavor experience possible,” Sun World CEO Merrill Dibble said. “As an organization, every decision we make will be made to keep this promise to our consumers, customers, partners and our people.”

Sun World will share the brand promise through a series of events throughout the year including the recent rollout of the newly branded, new packaging designs, a Family Farm Earth Day Celebration for employees and families, and the formal launch of the Sun World Sustainability Program & Annual Report.

The sustainability program will benchmark and set target goals for sustainability activities, many of which are already being implemented by the Company, such as solar-powered vineyards, water reclamation, bee forages and farm worker safety & empowerment programs.

“The Better Farms. Better Flavor. promise will be a common thread throughout all of our global brand building efforts. When our customers carry Sun World grapes they can have confidence that they are delivering to shoppers the best in premium quality grapes, backed by a consumer centric brand position that will create loyalty and repeat sales,” Sun World Marketing Manager Natalie Erlendson said.

Erlendson also informed Produce Report,” China is a primary export focus for Sun World and we are investing in building a consumer brand to help drive sales in the region.”
