Land O’Lakes Invites People to “Eat It Like You Own It” in Unapologetically Indulgent First Campaign from BATTERY

October 20th, 2021

Land O’Lakes, Inc., one of America’s foremost agribusiness and food companies, reveals an appetite for work that is bold and different with the first brand campaign created by Battery (Havas Media Group) since being appointed agency of record for Land O’Lakes Dairy Foods retail brands in August.

Buttery baked goods are hard enough to resist as it is. But if you ever needed a reason for that extra bit of butter or slice of cheese, supporting independent farmers gives you permission to indulge. This fresh campaign reminds consumers that when you buy Land O Lakes® products, you are directly benefitting over 1,000 dairy farmer-owners and their communities.

Set to air through programmatic paid video, social media, shopper and the Land O’Lakes website, “Eat It Like You Own It” not only celebrates Land O’Lakes’ progressive 100-year-old farmer-owned, co-op business model – it invites consumers to eat Land O Lakes® products proudly as if you were a farmer-owner yourself.  

Directed by Brig of Tool of North America, and shot by Oscar-nominated Director of Photography Rachel Morrison, the good feeling is baked right into the four sunny spots: “Anthem,” “The Perfect Sandwich,” “Cookie Swap,” and “Buttered Toast.” Driven by an abundance mindset, the tagline “Eat It Like You Own It” is the ultimate permission slip to eat the food you love. Because you can feel good about where and who it comes from.

Timed for the brand’s 100th anniversary, this is the first Land O’Lakes campaign to emerge under the leadership of its new CMO Heather Malenshek. 

“The consumer and marketing landscape is changing at a rapid pace and we are excited to step out in a bold way with this new campaign for our Dairy Foods retail brands.The work celebrates the most authentic part of who Land O’Lakes is, a farmer-owned co-op, and the enjoyment that comes with eating food you can feel good about.”
