Preparing for new leadership West Pak Avocado debuts new campaign

West Pak Avocado, of Murrieta, California has announced the launch of The Avocado Family, a digital campaign for the global packer, shipper, and distributor of avocados.

To kick off The Avocado Family campaign, West Pak will introduce a new website ( and a mini-documentary video that will detail the organization’s humble beginnings, current innovation, and key stakeholders. 

The trailer for the video and a microsite will debut in time for the Produce Marketing Association (PMA) Fresh Summit in New Orleans on October 20-21, 2017 with a full launch slated for January 2018.

During PMA, West Pak will be exhibiting in booth #5319 visitors can see the new campaign. Attendees can also snap a picture at the booth, share on social media using the hashtag #TheAvocadoFamily, and enter the Home Sweet Avo drawing for a chance to win avocado prizes.

Co-founder Randy Shoup chimed in, “We’ve been blessed to have good performance in business, but the true blessing is our people; Those who contribute and take ownership in what they do as if it was their own. The Avocado Family campaign will be a part of the legacy that we leave our team, part of our family for the past 35 years, and the foundation for the values that they will carry forward.”
