DETROIT, MICH. – SEPTEMBER 12, 2013 – Marketing communications agency, Lowe Campbell Ewald, announced today that it has been awarded a substantial piece of business for Atkins Nutritionals, Inc. (Atkins™), a leader in the weight management category and provider of the original low-carb weight loss plan. The win followed a consultant-led review.
Scope of work for the brand includes strategy, creative development, and production of a multimillion dollar national campaign – slated to launch early next year – that will consist of TV and print.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Atkins for this launch,” said Jim Palmer, CEO at Lowe Campbell Ewald. “We believe the Atkins brand is a true paradigm shift in the world of nutrition and dieting, and that it’s different from the majority of diets that focus on caloric restriction. Our goal is to bring the Atkins lifestyle to more people, help them see the revolutionary nature of the Atkins approach, and how it can change their lives and give them the freedom to eat, feel good and lose weight.”
The Atkins Diet™ is a rigorously tested and proven diet program that made its debut in the 1970s, and has continuously refined and improved its approach to help people lead healthy, happy lives through sustainable weight loss. Over the past 18 months, the brand has undergone a significant transformation and has introduced a new line of frozen entrees (to complement existing bars and shakes) to make following the Atkins lifestyle even easier.
“We are excited to start working with Lowe Campbell Ewald and continue our mission of offering this scientifically based, proven eating plan as a viable option when conventional weight loss diets just don’t seem to work,” said Scott Parker, CMO, Atkins Nutritionals, Inc. “We want people to enjoy food with a sustainable lifestyle, and Atkins allows just that. We believe Lowe Campbell Ewald is the right partner to help us communicate our mission.”
