For the end of the 2021 season, Imalinx coordinated a sampling session with Sam’s Club to increase the brand visibility of Zespri SunGold kiwifruit. 

The first step was to provide an extensive training to the demo personnel so that they could share the key messages, a little history of the product and its benefits with consumers. 

 In addition we provide brand materials, such as: branded stand, aprons, face mask, tasting trays (just kiwi SunGold), fruit for tasting, banners, Zespri spoons in each of the samplings for our customers. 

Among the comments of customers, it was highlighted that Zespri Kiwi SunGold has a unique and sweet taste,  and as a result of this sampling we had an increase in sales of Kiwi Zespri SunGold of 75%, this comparing to 4 weeks prior to the activity.
