“We don’t underestimate the value of that victory moms can feel when preparing meals for their families,” said Peggy Ellingson, vice president of innovation and new business development at Land O’Lakes. “In fact, this is the first of many products we’re developing as part of our cooking platform strategy to help moms win the daily what’s-for-dinner battle. If we can help mom win at mealtime, everybody wins.”
“A team effort brought this campaign to life,” said Heath Rudduck, chief creative officer at Campbell Mithun. “And at the center of it is the busy mom who can command a hectic but wonderfully rewarding family life. We agency partners worked together, lock step with the client, to develop a campaign that introduces the product directly to this busy mom -- with the relaxed and real feel of a modern family household.”
The advertising campaign will run on national television and as digital banners from mid-January to mid-April 2013. The product began appearing in dairy aisles in October 2012 and was named in December 2012 among DairyFoods top ten “Best New Dairy Products of 2012.”
