To do this, the company has teamed up with mobile technology company iBotta to incentivize shoppers through a mobile app and with geo-targeted coupons, as well as influential Registered Dietitian Carissa Bealert for a nationally-syndicated television segment. This has reached over 150 of the U.S.’s largest markets and helps consumers understand the nutritional value found in Ocean Mists’ artichokes and the various meal options they provide. It is also strengthened with the help of food bloggers, who will bring more awareness about the easy-to-include produce item, according to a press release.

Diana McClean, Senior Director of Marketing, Ocean Mist® Farms“We understand how intimidating cooking with fresh artichokes can be for consumers who have never explored that method before, so we are maximizing our marketing efforts and relationships with influencers to gather educational and inspirational content that helps break down those barriers,” Diana McClean, Senior Director of Marketing said. “As a result of empowering people with the tools they need, we expect significant movement of product at the store level.”

Ocean Mist has seen 20,029 completed brand engagements and activated in-store purchases of its products since the national campaign first launched.
