Iconic Chiquita Blue Sticker Leverages Snapchat Technology to Excite Shoppers and Retailers Globally

Chiquita Brands International, the world’s leading banana company, announced a new partnership with Snapchat, the global multimedia messaging app, which will allow consumers to have fun with Chiquita in honor of World Banana Day on April 17th. Through the end of May SnapCodes will appear on 200 million Chiquita Blue Stickers, allowing fans of the brand to virtually “peel back” the sticker to tap into three exciting new experiences.

The Snapchat campaign includes: World Lens, Face Lens and a Gamified Lens. The World Lens turns Snapchatters into a dancing Chiquita Banana character. The Face Lens turns their faces into a Chiquita Banana. The Gamified lens invites Snapchatters to catch the falling Chiquita Bananas into a fruit bowl to score points. “Bananas are among the top sellers across grocery stores, making them present on almost every kitchen counter or table across the country,” said Jamie Postell, Director of Sales North America for Chiquita. “Chiquita will be the first brand to bring Snapchat visual recognition technology in the fresh produce aisle. This provides Chiquita a unique opportunity to leverage its iconic Blue Stickers as a powerful touchpoint with the Millennial and Gen Z consumers to interact with the brand in a fun, and relevant way.”

With support from creative agency Dffrnt Media, this Blue Sticker-Snapchat campaign will launch at the beginning of April in the United States and rolls out worldwide in the following weeks, staying on shelves for a four-week period.

For decades, Chiquita has produced special editions of its iconic Blue Sticker and this latest campaign with Snapchat exemplifies the brand’s ability to connect Chiquita bananas and consumers in a playful and fun way. In addition to fun, Chiquita also reminds its fans that its iconic Blue Sticker stands for high-quality, delicious bananas, and – above all – sustainable bananas. For this reason, the “Behind the Blue Sticker” initiative includes various innovations in farm management and logistics with an impact on waste, emission reduction CO2 and water footprint, and much more.

Chiquita Brands International, the world’s foremost banana purveyor, announced a new partnership with Shazam, the popular audio and visual recognition app, which will help consumers discover how Chiquita is leading sustainability efforts in an emotional and engaging way. Utilizing the AR/VR expertise of creative agency Dffrnt Media, consumers will be able to scan a Shazam Code on the iconic Blue Sticker via the app, and virtually “peel back” to learn more about Chiquita’s commitment to transparency and sustainability in addition to what Chiquita does, day after day, to deliver the promise that stands “Behind the Blue Sticker.”

Starting in mid-July, the Shazam Code will appear on 200 million Chiquita Blue Stickers in the US and several European countries for a four-week period. Consumers will be able to access an AR experience via the Shazam app that will then transport consumers into the tropics through Virtual Reality. Essentially, they’ll be able to follow the journey of a banana from Chiquita farms in Latin America, to the port facility, right across the Atlantic and all the way to their kitchen table via their favorite grocery store.
