Smokin' Dad Red Spuds Promotion

This Father’s Day promotion puts the spotlight on Smokin’ Dads who serve up red potatoes right. An online and in-store sales initiative (with packaging and POS collateral) drove red sales with added extras including a Smokin’ Dad apron giveaway, exclusive red potato recipes and the secret behind a grill hack.

Local Beauty

Consumers want to buy local but at the store it can be baffling with so many new varieties of potatoes available. In-store and targeted digital content ensures Black Gold Farms’ beautiful red potatoes make it safely into shoppers’ carts.
