  • Coca-Cola’s New Global Campaign  “Taste The Feeling” Debuts in Canada

    Campaign launches with 60-second spot on advertising’s biggest stage Coca-Cola Canada officially launched its new global campaign, “Taste the Feeling”, in Canada with its biggest ever media investment in a Canadian broadcast of the Super Bowl. The 60-second television spot, titled “Anthem,” comes to life through a series of ordinary moments linked by a Coca-Cola, such as playing in the snow with friends, a first date, a first kiss, and a first love. “Anthem” premiered during the first quarter of the game and aired four times during the broadcast.

    “Taste the Feeling’ reinforces that drinking a Coca-Cola, any Coca-Cola, makes a moment more special,” said Michael Samoszewski, Vice President of Sparkling, Coca-Cola Ltd. “What better way for us to kick-off our new campaign than during the biggest sporting event in North America; when friends and families come together to share in all of the exciting and nail-biting moments of football’s biggest day.”

    “Anthem”, created by Mercado-McCann, is the lead television spot in a series of 10 created as part of the global “Taste the Feeling” campaign. The spots give the viewer momentary but intimate glimpses into everyday stories, feelings and experiences that people share while enjoying an ice-cold Coca-Cola. At the close of each commercial, the family of Coca-Cola trademark products unite as one under the famous red Coca-Cola disc. Television spots aired in the Canadian market will include an end-tag that highlights two smaller pack sizes, the 237mL iconic glass bottle and 222mL mini can, along with calorie information for each.

    “We know Canadians want the information to make the right choices for them,” says Samoszewski. “Many Canadians are not aware that we have smaller packages available or how many calories they contain, and these messages can help to support their beverage choices.”

    The campaign also features 100+ campaign images shot by noted fashion photographers Guy Aroch and Nacho Ricci capturing people from around the world enjoying ice-cold Coca-Cola in a variety of everyday moments.

    The new campaign imagery will be used in print advertising, out of home billboards, in-store as well as digital media.

    To see the commercials and view the campaign images, please visit www.coca-colacompany.com/tastethefeeling/.

  • Novipax Unveils Pad-Loc® Fresh™ CO2-Generating Absorbent Pad

    Novipax, the leading producer of absorbent pads in the United States, is pleased to announce that it has advanced the company’s mission to enhance food presentation and safety by releasing the innovative, new Pad-Loc® Fresh™.

    Pad-Loc Fresh generates carbon dioxide (CO2) inside the package to help create an environment that is unfavorable for microbial growth on fresh and processed meats, poultry, seafood and other food products. Used as a tool in an effective modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) strategy, Pad-Loc Fresh enables fresh and minimally processed packaged food products to maintain visual, textural and nutritional appeal while also helping to extend the shelf life of fresh food products without the need to add chemical preservatives or stabilizers.

    “We are extremely excited to be launching Pad-Loc Fresh,” said Novipax CEO Bob Larson. “Pad-Loc Fresh is not only the latest product innovation from Novipax, but it also promises to take food presentation and safety to a whole new level.”

    Pad-Loc Fresh incorporates the same construction and features as the company’s flagship Pad-Loc pad, but goes a step further by integrating a granular agent that releases CO2 when moisture is absorbed into the pad. This material also provides a much more consistent release of CO2 than powders used in other pads.

    Pad-Loc Fresh is an FDA-approved product, which allows for sale of the product in both the USA and Canada.

    For more information on Pad-Loc Fresh, and all other Novipax pads and trays, please visit www.novipax.com.
