Pete and Gerry's Organic Eggs Names Figliulo&Partners Creative Agency of Record

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - March 31, 2016) - Pete and Gerry's Organic Eggs, America's first Certified Humane® egg producer and the world's first B Corp Certified non-crop farm, today has appointed NYC-based Figliulo&Partners (F&P) creative agency of record (AOR). The agency was selected following a competitive review and will service Pete and Gerry's full family of brands including Pete and Gerry's Organic, Nellie's Free Range, and Carol's Heirloom and Pasture Raised.

"For three generations, my family has been on a mission to help America eat better eggs," said Jesse Laflamme, CEO of Pete and Gerry's. "With the help of F&P, we will be able to communicate the benefits of humane, ethical eggs produced on small family farms to consumers across the country."

For three decades, Pete and Gerry's has been committed to producing fresh, organic eggs from humanely raised hens through three unique and distinctive brands. They have expanded by partnering with small, independent farm partners and not by simply adding more and bigger "barns" as the factory egg producers have done. The company is on a significant growth trajectory -- especially with the organic and small food movement -- and currently has the biggest and fastest growing Free Range and Organic Free Range brands in the country.

The appointment of F&P supports Pete and Gerry's goals to be the national brand leader in premium eggs for both organic and non-organic consumers. The agency's first work is anticipated to launch later this year across a variety of mediums, including TV, print, out-of-home, video, digital, social and mobile.

"Jesse and his team have a dearly held belief that if you treat hens well, better eggs will follow," said F&P's Founder and CEO Mark Figliulo. "They are disrupting their category and we find it very inspiring. We couldn't ask for a better brief to tell their story as they expand across America."

Pete and Gerry's is the latest win for F&P and joins a roster of clients across several industries. Earlier this year, the agency was named Global AOR for AC Hotels by Marriott and also recently won AOR duties for Virgin Atlantic Airlines and Carnival Cruise Line's ultra-luxury, small-ship cruise line Seabourn.
