Pete & Gerry’s Pasture-Raised Eggs Launch National Campaign

Pete & Gerry’s Pasture-Raised Eggs, part of the Pete & Gerry’s family of egg brands, including Pete & Gerry’s Organic and Nellie’s Free Range, has launched its latest campaign, “(Almost) The Wildest Eggs You Can Get”. The announcement comes hot off the heels of securing national distribution for its Certified Humane Pasture-Raised Eggs—now available from coast to coast at major retailers including Whole Foods, Kroger, Stop & Shop, Shaws, Hannaford and The Giant Company. This significant distribution milestone comes just months after the new item’s introduction.

Pete & Gerry’s Pasture-Raised Eggs hit the market earlier this year, offering high-quality eggs from hens raised to Certified Humane Pasture-Raised welfare standards, which guarantee that each hen enjoys at least 108 square feet of lush pastures with room to roam, forage and explore under sunny skies. The result is one of the healthiest, most sustainable sources of protein: eggs with deep golden yolks, a richer, creamier flavor and strong, sturdy shells. For decades, the Pete & Gerry’s brand had pioneered a model of egg production that’s better for hens, better for farmers and better for the planet. Continuing in this tradition, Pete & Gerry’s Pasture-Raised Eggs is another landmark in the brand’s legacy of leading the industry in better production practices.

In continued momentum, Pete & Gerry’s Pasture-Raised Eggs has launched a “wild” new national advertising campaign, in partnership with creative agency Humanaut, featuring streaming TV, YouTube and social media ad placements, as well as digital out of home. The advertising campaign will be in market through the end of the year.

The new ads depict shoppers going to dangerous lengths to source wild eggs from eagle, ostrich and even alligator nests. But thanks to Pete & Gerry’s Pasture-Raised, consumers don’t have to brave the actual wilderness to get the freshest, highest-quality eggs; they can simply buy them straight from the supermarket shelf.

“As the industry pioneer in better production practices, Pete & Gerry’s has the credibility and brand equity to win in Pasture-Raised, and our latest distribution milestone shows that we are well on our way to achieving that goal,” said Phyllis Rothschild, Chief Marketing Officer at Pete & Gerry’s. “We feel the time is right to launch this campaign to build on our success so far this year. The story we’re telling is fun and memorable but also resonates with consumers who care about animal welfare and high- quality foods.”

“The egg category is rife with quaint pastoral imagery and beautifully cracked eggs, regardless of whether or not the eggs came from hens that actually lived such an idyllic life. By creating tension between the kinds of images consumers are used to and the over-the-top wild animals in the campaign, we were able to create an unexpected splash of humor for the brand and show how well Pete & Gerry’s Pasture-Raised hens actually live,” continues Bethany Maxfield, Humanaut Creative Director.

Pete & Gerry’s Pasture-Raised Eggs are now available nationwide for a suggested retail price of $7.49. For more information on Pete & Gerry’s Pasture-Raised, visit Pete and Gerry’s.
