The country’s number one sausage product that is produced here in Chelsea at Kayem Foods Inc. was named Family Circle’s Best Product of 2010 and is now re-launching its branding of the sausage.
Last week al fresco–known for its chicken sausage manufactured by Kayem–unveiled a brand new look and feel including a new logo, advertising campaign, redesigned product packaging and a refreshed website.
The new ad campaign, created by The VIA Group, features healthy recipes, created by al fresco’s Executive Chef, Susanna Tolini. The new campaign will run in national magazines and on top food websites including Cooking Light, Food Network Magazine, Every Day with Rachael Ray, Eating Well, Fine Cooking, http://AllRecipes.com, http://Recipezaar.com, http://FoodNetwork.com, http://EatingWell.com and http://MyRecipes.com.
The ads are estimated to be viewed more than 200 million times, successfully putting al fresco’s brand re-launch in the spotlight and in front of their target consumers. Coinciding with this campaign, the re-designed packaging created by LAM design will also be hitting store shelves and will include easier-to-read nutrition facts and feature a more prominent brand logo, allowing customers to easily identify al fresco products.
In addition to featuring delicious, quick and healthy recipes using al fresco, the new campaign showcases Executive Chef Susanna Tolini as the face of the brand.
The Johnson & Wales School of Culinary Arts graduate joined al fresco in 2007, where she works to develop unique flavors and delicious, creative recipes. Before coming to al fresco, she developed new products for premium food manufacturers including Trio’s Pasta, Stop & Shop and Hans Kissle. She was also co-owner and chef at Le Bocage, a top French restaurant in the Boston area.

"Susanna personifies the creativity and fun you can have with this product. Bursting with flavor, al fresco all natural chicken sausages can be used in so many different dishes.
