Martha Stewart part of new VSA/Borden® Cheese campaign

A scene from VSA Partners’ “Love, Always an ingredient” for Borden

BORDEN® CHEESE TARGETS BUSY MOMS in an integrated campaign — including Martha Stewart’s Facebook Live show, the first for a cheese brand — from VSA Partners for marketing collective Dairy Farmers of America (DFA), headquartered in Kansas City.

Borden® Cheese is made with the belief that the best products are composed of quality ingredients and genuine care. The campaign’s tagline, “Love. Always an Ingredient,” highlights dairy farmers’ dedication to producing the best product.

On Stewart’s Facebook Live show, she shares a classic seasonal recipe for tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches that use a variety of Borden® Cheeses. The event, that was shared by Stewart in a Dec.5 blog, has attracted 218,000 views and yielded more than 10,000 interactions since it’s been on the air.

VSAs relationship with Borden® Cheese began six months ago as part of a greater client engagement with DFA’s Consumer Brands division. VSA now handles marketing for three of the group’s major brands: La Vaquita®Cheese, Borden®Cheese and Cache Valley® Creamery.

LADY ON THE RUN” is a 30-second Kohler’s faucet commercial from DDB Chicago, now airing on broadcast and YouTube as part as Kohler’s continuing “Never TOO Wanted” campaign that launched in 2015. With the authorities hot on her trail, the Wanted Woman in the spot feels the pressure of being on the run. Trying to gain her composure, Lady on the Run notices the bathroom faucet and is drawn to its simplicity and sleek design.

Inspired by the faucet’s beauty and “less is more” aesthetic, she changes her appearance, simplifies her style and transforms into a minimalist muse.
