fairlife and Peapod Shine a Spotlight on Local Dairy Farmers

The Companies Celebrated National Farmer’s Day with Launch of Farmer Profiles and Special Deals on fairlife Ultra-Filtered Milk

 

Chicago, Ill. – October 17, 2018 – In honor of National Farmer’s Day, fairlife, LLC  and Peapod joined hands to introduce consumers to the farmers behind their favorite dairy foods. Starting on October 12, 2018, they launched a new series of videos and articles on Peapod.com that profile the dairy farmers at the fairlife flagship farm in Indiana, showcase how they treat their cows, and provide overviews of how the foods are created using modern agricultural practices. In addition, both companies are offering Peapod members the opportunity to purchase any two 52oz fairlife products for $6 from October 12 to November 9, 2018.

“We are thrilled to work with fairlife to offer our customers this opportunity to try fairlife ultra-filtered milk at a special discount and virtually meet the local farmers behind the product throughout the month of October,” said Spencer Baird, SVP Merchandising at Peapod. “Peapod is proud to support farmers year-round and we look forward to spotlighting four different farms over the coming weeks on Peapod.com, with shoppable fairlife items for customers to click to add to their cart, furthering the convenience of shopping local.”

This joint effort by Peapod and fairlife is in conjunction with the Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy’s Undeniably Dairy campaign, a multi-year effort to introduce Americans to the farmers and the stories behind their favorite dairy foods.  The new series of stories will feature the fairlife family of farmers as they talk passionately about caring for the cows and land while working together to deliver a one-of-a-kind milk that delivers the high-quality nutrition that modern consumers want and need from their foods today.

“At fairlife, we believe that great tasting nutrition starts with high quality milk that comes from sustainable farming and extraordinary animal care” said Sue McCloskey, a dairy farmer and the co-founder of fairlife, LLC. “Our flagship farm in Fair Oaks, Indiana has always been open to the public and has welcomed guests from far and wide, making it an agritourism destination for all to experience and enjoy. But we want people to know more about who we are and why we do what we do, that’s where the videos of our family of farmers comes in. This program is one way we can invite the masses to get a backstage pass to the farms and take-a-peek into the dairy farming industry, right from their mobile devices and digital screens.”
