Dole and Hema Fresh organized Sweetio super sweet banana activity for Chinese Valentine's Day

Dole organized promotional activities for Sweetio super sweet bananas in Shanghai's Baodi Plaza and Beijing's Shili Castle, as well as other locations of Hema Fresh stores. The promotional activities took place between the 13th of August and the 15th of August, during the traditional holiday of 'qixi' that celebrates the romantic, annual meeting between a shepherd boy and a weaver girl. The holiday is also known as 'double seven', as it falls on the seventh day of the seventh month in the lunar calendar, or 'Chinese Valentine's Day' for its romantic connotations.

Many key opinion leaders (KOLs) weighed in on the new look of the Dole Sweetio banana brand during the promotional activity in Shanghai. Dole has worked with Hema Fresh since the new chain opened six years ago. And delicious, healthy Dole fruit is available online and in-store in Hema Fresh stores throughout the country.
