New Freshpet Marketing Campaign Gives Pooches Another Chance To Speak Out Against Processed Pet Food

July 9, 2012

SECAUCUS, N.J., July 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Freshpet, the only company providing fresh, refrigerated dog and cat food nationwide, announced that it is launching today the next phase of its “Protest” campaign. The campaign highlights Freshpet’s unique benefit of fresh, all natural dog food and contrasts the brand with the preservative-laden dog foods on store shelves. It includes three television spots, as well as posters to be featured at upcoming sponsorship events. The campaign, created by The Terri & Sandy Solution, is a follow-up to last year’s “Protest” spot, which was named the number one most effective spot in the pet food category, according to Ace Metrix.

“Our company was founded on the simple idea that fresher, less processed foods are healthier for us and the pets in our lives,” says Scott Morris, Freshpet’s Co-founder. “At Freshpet we use fresh meats and refrigeration as our preservative. The ingredients used to make shelf-stable dog and cat food could never be used for human foods and the ‘Protest’ campaign highlights this.”

The creative for the advertising campaign, developed by The Terri & Sandy Solution, features a variety of dogs wearing placards with sayings that play off the breed, including a mutt with a sign, “By-Products Can Kiss My Mutt,” a pug wearing a sign that says, “Pug Off, Preservatives,” and a Shih Tzu wearing, “Propylene Glycol Is Shih Tzu.” “Last year’s spot was the most effective in the pet food industry. And we wanted to up the ante. The lines and the music this year are more irreverent in a playful, wag-your-tail kind of way,” says Sandy Greenberg, Co-founder of The Terri & Sandy Solution. Adds Terri Meyer, Co-Founder, The Terri & Sandy Solution, “If dogs knew what ingredients were in their food, they would speak out. We’re just giving them a voice.”
