Success Story - Diva®
A distinctly delicious apple from New Zealand. This stunning new apple brand has been developed by Fruitcraft™ and is being introduced to markets around the world.
In 2012 the Fruitcraft™ partners recognised that there was an opportunity to work together to introduce a new sweet, red apple, particularly to South-East Asian and Chinese customers, and set about developing the product and the brand. The following year the Diva® brand was launched, with a new logo and new packaging around a fantastic product. Interest in Diva® branded apples has soared, with orders coming from around the world.
The successful collaboration of Mr Apple, BOSTOCK New Zealand and Freshmax™ on this project lead directly to the formation of Fruitcraft™. The introduction and development of Diva® is a great example of how Fruitcraft™ can identify and launch a new product, and quickly establish a successful business around it.
