Land O’Lakes Tells You to Eat Butter Like You Own It in Campaign from Battery

Land O’Lakes Tells You to Eat Butter Like You Own It in Campaign from Battery

American agribusiness and food company Land O’Lakes, Inc. 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. 

Heather Malenshek, Senior Vice President and CMO, Land O’Lakes, says: “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.”

Andrea Schneider, creative director, Battery, says: “On our initial chemistry call with the Land O’Lakes team, we got a great sense of the true ambition they had and that made the project so appealing to us. This was a rare situation when the client bought the concept from the get-go. Battery went in to the final pitch with the one idea and it hit the brief in a way that laid the foundation: to get people to know about the farmer-owners they are directly benefitting when they buy Land O Lakes products, and feel good about eating what they love. Not every brand would be as comfortable going in to a final meeting with an agency who was all-in on a single idea. It speaks to how brave and bold Land O’Lakes is willing to be.

Philip Khosid, co-founder and chief creative officer, Battery, comments: "‘Eat It Like You Own It’ is joyful and self-evident. It feels like an unwritten truth, and it’s what we should aspire to do. This campaign narrows it down to small incremental moments of joy, eating those truly satisfying foods that make you feel good – and you feel especially good about who your money is supporting. It applies to everyone, and the overall notion of community, which we all need right now.”
