(June 25) The California Tree Fruit Agreement and Epic Roots have targeted the Fourth of July for another summer fruit cross promotion.

About 160,000 clamshells and bags of mache salads from Salinas, Calif.-based Epic Roots scheduled to ship June 15 through July 2 have an 8-page recipe book featuring serving suggestions for mache and tree fruit, said Catherine Baggott, marketing manager.

Packages also have a 50-cent coupon off a future Epic Roots purchase.

Baggott said this is the fourth time Epic Roots and CFTA have paired for a summer promotion.

Sheri Mireau, president of the Reedley-based California Tree Fruit Agreement said past promotions have gone well.

“It has been a very successful promotion in the past, and we’re very happy to be partnering with them again,” Mireau said.
