HOW DO YOU TURN BANANAS, PINEAPPLES AND LETTUCE INTO MORE THAN PRODUCE?

YOU GIVE CONSUMERS A DECADE OF COMPELLING REASONS TO CARE.

DOLE® Food Company

Strategic Flight Plan

Dole Food Company may be the world’s largest provider of fresh fruits and vegetables. But to an uninitiated public, all produce is pretty much the same. A banana is a banana is a banana. To get consumers to buy brand in the most commoditized industry of them all, the team at Rocket Launch actively partnered with Dole for 13 years to develop promotions, nutrition initiatives and strategic alliances to maintain industry leadership in brand equity, market share and consumer perceptions of product quality, innovation, and societal value.
