Natural Delights shipping high-quality dates for Ramadan
Ramadan, which begins Wednesday, March 22, and runs through Friday, April 21, is an important holiday for Muslims around the world and Natural Delights is preparing to ship premium Medjool dates to retailers across North America.
“Natural Delights sales continue to grow each Ramadan,” said Bridgette Weber, trade marketing manager for Natural Delights. “Muslim shoppers purchase large quantities of dates for themselves and as gifts for family and friends.
“Fasting from just before sunrise until sunset each day of the month is a highly anticipated ritual many Muslims look forward to for the peace and tranquility it affords their physical and spiritual bodies,” Weber continued. “The time carved out that would otherwise be spent cooking and eating is instead given over to self-reflection, prayer, charity and other forms of worship through good deeds.
“Natural Delights uniquely offers beautiful gift boxes with window lids that allow shoppers to see the high-quality Medjool dates inside,” she continued. Natural Delights weekly volume sales spikes an average of 57 percent during Ramadan.
