Name of partner: Kraft Foods Australia
‘Kraft Live Active Cheese' - Marketing support for a product launch
Baker IDI's vast knowledge lends itself to supporting industry by developing new products and market existing products accurately and safely.
Kraft Foods is Australia's fastest growing food company and when Kraft developed the Live Active cholesterol reducing cheese range, input from the Institute's Professor Peter Clifton was sought. The Live Active range became the first cholesterol lowering cheese in the Australian market.
Baker IDI and Professor Clifton (Head - Nutritional Intervention Laboratory) were further engaged by Kraft Foods Ltd to oversee the development of all marketing materials and supporting literature relating to this new cheese, as well as providing on-going support and consultancy to Kraft to explain this innovative product to the community and media. Baker IDI ensured that all communications relating to the cheese were scientifically accurate, which allowed Kraft to have confidence in the credibility of the information they where providing consumers throughout the product launch.
