Chiquita announces U.S. campaign launch, ‘We Are Bananas"

Chiquita Brands International has announced the launch of its new campaign ‘We Are Bananas’ in partnership with creative agency Wieden+Kennedy.

The brand debuts the collaboration with an initial out-of-home presence in key cities across the U.S., including a variety of billboards in New York’s Times Square, Los Angeles, Chicago and Cincinnati.

Drawing on Chiquita’s playful heritage, complimentary headlines for the OOH debut include ‘hello yellow,’ ‘nobody has ever eaten a banana angry’ and ‘work on your curve.’ This comes in advance of a larger integrated campaign announcement in June incorporating experiential pop-ups, in-store signage, digital content and brand partnerships.

“From first branding the banana with our bold blue stickers in 1944 to introducing the world to Miss Chiquita, we’ve aimed to drive home our brand’s key message of fun through vibrant and light-hearted visual storytelling,” said Chiquita Brands International’s President and CEO, Andrew Biles. “We’re thrilled to carry on that tradition with new and exciting work that will challenge conventional marketing in unexpected ways as it unfolds throughout the year.”
