These cities are headquarters to most of the largest supermarkets in the United States and Canada.
The local influencers are leaders in the food and drink space and have followers in the several thousands. They will be sharing delicious recipes with Limoneira lemons and other citrus and fun tips for the whole family and will also be directing them to the many great grocery stores to get healthy.
Each month the influencers will share tips and highlight the important work that professional Retail Dietitian/Nutritionists do.

A spotlight will also be shown on Lemonade Day, a fun, experiential program that teaches youth how to start, own and operate their very own business - a lemonade stand. Each year, in participating cities, youth have the opportunity to experience entrepreneurship by setting up their business during their city's community-wide Lemonade Day.
Alex Teague, Limoneira COO says, “The current pandemic has demonstrated how important health is. This topic and supporting communities have been part of Limoneira’s foundation for 126 years. Our Company’s founders were entrepreneurs, and that is why we sponsor the Lemonade Day organization. This tour reinforces health and rolling up one’s sleeves to get the job done.”
“Lemons are one of the healthiest things that can be consumed, and they’re extremely versatile. Our influencers will be sharing not only delicious and healthy recipes, but the many ways lemons can be used in beauty, green cleaning and fun lifestyles,” added John Carter, Limoneira’s Vice President of Global Sales.
