The key objective was to create an impactful way to boost brand awareness and engage young moms on Instagram around family recipes.

Target Audience

The primary target was Millennial Moms, ages 25-35 with 2+ children in the household, with interests in cooking, family activities, and spending time on social media.

Consumer First® Solution

We started with our audience of Millennial Moms and their interests in following Influencers and trendy cooking shows. Next, we tapped into Food Network's Retro Rad Chef, Emily Ellyn, a sour Freshness Expert. Emily created new recipes and we produced videos of her preparing and cooking the dishes with Frigo® cheese. We would use Instagram to showcase these new recipe sand develop an incentive for our Moms to share their recipes, too

The Experience

We launched the FRIGO® FRESH FAMILY FAVORITES recipe contest encouraging consumers to share PHOTOS of their Frigo® cheese-inspired family recipes. Moms could share their fresh family favorite dishes for a chance to Win a $2,000 gift card Grand Prize and Frigo® cheese for a year.


The results exceeded all expectations for a PHOTO upload contest.

  • 12,235 PHOTOS were entered by consumers on the website

  • 1,200 additional photo entries were gained on Instagram
  • 87,204 Video views across social media
  • 1,500,000+ User Generated Content tagged with #FreshFamilyFavorites on Instagram
