Canadian dairy co-op celebrates outdoor adventure with pop-up stops across Ontario this summer

today announces the launch of IVANHOE NOTHING BUT, a crunchy dehydrated, gluten-free cheese
snack, perfect for those with busy lifestyles and active outdoor enthusiasts
looking for healthy, high-protein snacks on-the-go.
The launch of IVANHOE NOTHING BUT in three
amazing flavours – Cheddar, Smoked Gouda and Monterey Jack with Red Bell and

innovating after listening and learning from its customers.
“Our consumers told us that they are looking for convenient,
better-for-you snacking options that not only taste great, but allow them to
stay fuller longer to help sustain their busy lifestyles,” says Monika Giasson,
Product Manager, Gay Lea Foods. “Even more important for them right now, is a
strong desire to support local, Canadian-made products. With NOTHING BUT we packaged
up all of that knowledge and we are excited to launch our new crunchy, protein-packed,
gluten-free dehydrated cheese snack that will keep them coming back for more.
And what’s more is that to celebrate our launch, we’ll be getting outside and
meeting adventurers across Ontario this summer to give them a taste of our new
delicious snack. We can’t wait for everyone to try it!”
Through research, the team at Gay Lea Foods established
a brand essence routed in adventure. They found that enthusiasts are looking
for products – like NOTHING BUT – that are Canadian, healthy and easy to take along
with them. And, with Ontario adventure locations opening up for the summer, the
timing for giving them a chance to try the new crunchy snack couldn’t be better.
With that in mind, the brand created the NOTHING BUT Adventure Supply Co.
activation that will bring a custom Ranger Station-style footprint to Ontario adventurers
and offer them special supplies and samples of the product to help facilitate
their adventure experience. The official kick-off begins with a free outdoor
adventure workshop at Humber River for a group of unsuspecting community

to making communities better, IVANHOE NOTHING BUT will also be making donations
to The Boundless School, Project Canoe and Outward
to help underserved youth experience the benefits of outdoor adventure.
NOTHING BUT will be launching
national sampling, digital pre-roll and targeted out-of-home ads this summer
and fall. Born from the product’s “Adventure Fuel” positioning, each of the
campaign’s three 15-second spots features people who come alive doing a different
outdoor activity they love, and this new snack is the fuel that enables them to
immerse themselves in nothing but that moment.
