What’s the value of your brand? It’s the price premium your customers will pay (over the price of a commodity). The web can help you romance your brand and help your customers feel good about paying more, especially when you don’t have a lot of room at the point of sale to tell the whole story.
Dole uses a simple coded sticker to provide visibility to its organic banana farms around the world. By entering the 3-digit farm code you can see the farm where the banana was grown, including a link to its precise location on Google Earth. Beyond location, you can find the organic certifications and learn more about the farm that produced your banana.
