Fiji Water, Olympian Allyson Felix partner on campaign
After announcing its dive into the sports world by unveiling a new sports cap, Fiji Water also revealed that it will partner with Olympian Allyson Felix on a campaign.
The Fiji Water Sports Cap campaign features Felix — the most decorated Olympian in track and field history — dominating the concrete path and reaching for the brand’s sports bottle cap to recharge and replenish.
“Allyson Felix is constantly pushing the limits both on and off the track,” Clarence Chia, vice president of marketing at Fiji Water, said. “Her accomplishments are impressive and inspiring to many Fiji Water fans, making her an ideal star in our new sports cap bottle TV campaign.”
In addition to the television spots, the Los Angeles-based company will support the campaign through print advertising in such publications as Runner’s World, Women’s Health and ESPN Magazine. Digital space with digital ads, social media, influencer marketing, in-store promotions, public relations and event marketing efforts also will be implemented.
“This evolves our Fiji ‘Water Story’ campaign to also celebrate the consumer’s part in this incredible tale that began with a drop of rain over a pristine island,” Darren Moran, the chief creative officer of Fiji Water’s in-house team, the Wonderful Agency, said. “Everyone gets a chance to write their own chapter. How memorable a chapter is up to you.”
Fiji Water’s sports cap bottle is now available for purchase on its home delivery website and retail stores nationwide for the suggested price of $2.29 per bottle.
Bare Snacks adds veggie chips to its portfolio
In the midst of being acquired by PepsiCo, Bare Snacks announced the launch of a new line of crunchy veggie chips.
The brand’s new beet, carrot and sweet potato chips are made with real vegetables that are baked, and made without the use of oil, preservatives and artificial flavors, the company said.
“Our new beet, carrot and sweet potato chips are a fresh take on veggie chips that everyone can root for,” Santosh Padki, CEO at Bare Snacks, said. “Unlike other veggie snacks that are often fried or made with starchy powders and oil, our new veggie chips are a truly clean option made with real vegetables and nothing extra. We’ve discovered a new way to make veggies snackable and are excited for everyone to try our crunchy and delicious chips.”
Available in six varieties, the chips are sliced, lightly seasoned and baked using a process that delivers crunch and flavor. The San Fransisco-based company’s new launches include:
- Bare beet chips, which come in sea salt and salt and vinegar options;
- Bare carrot chips, which are available in sea salt and ranch flavors; and
- Bare sweet potato chips, which feature sea salt and barbecue varieties.
The baked veggie chips carry a suggested retail price of $4.49 per bag and can be found at such retailers as Kroger, Giant Food, Stop & Shop, HEB, Wegmans, Amazon and select Target stores in July.
