Winter Haven, FL (PRWEB) July 18, 2014
In April of this year, the business development arm of the Seminole Tribe acquired a 60 percent stake in the W.G. Roe & Sons juice processing operation in Winter Haven, Fla. The Tribe previously purchased a majority interest in Noble Food Service, the sales and marketing operation of the Roe Family’s juice processing business.
Tony Sanchez, President of the Seminole Tribe of Florida, Inc., said, “The Tribe is growing and diversifying its business interests by partnering with local Florida, family companies to strengthen the people and agriculture of Florida. The expanded partnership with W.G. Roe & Sons positions the Tribe for significant growth within the food service and retail channels.”
The first wave of the new marketing campaign debuted with a “Pure Juice, Pure Flavor, 100% Pure Ingredients” tagline, to emphasize the artisan hand-crafted, naturally pure product line. The Seminole Pride(TM) Noble(R) Juice portfolio includes the cornerstone 100% Florida Tangerine Juice, along with 100% Florida Orange, Organic Orange, 100% Tangerine Clementine, 100% Caribbean, Organic Orange Tangerine, Blood Orange, 100% Florida Super Red Grapefruit, Organic Grapefruit, Lemonade made with agave, Pure Lemon, Pure Lime, Organic Lemonade made with organic agave, Organic Apple, and seasonal juices like 100% Florida Pummelo Grapefruit Juice.
The web site and other marketing materials also include a Florida-focused message, “Florida Grown. Florida Produced. Florida Bottled,” in keeping with the long Florida history of both W.G. Roe & Sons and the Seminole Tribe.
W.G. Roe & Sons company president Quentin Roe said, “The business commitment of the Seminole Tribe of Florida, Inc. and W.G. Roe & Sons will create more opportunities for growth, including higher production volume to meet the demand for new products, increased marketing of existing products, and increased geographic reach.”
The “Pure” marketing campaign is being rolled out under the leadership of Bridgett Roode, director of marketing for Seminole Brand Development. For more information about the marketing campaign, contact Roode at broode(at)sempride(dot)com.
