DairyPure Serves Up Innovation in Cottage Cheese Category with Launch of DairyPure Mix-ins

DALLAS –DairyPure®, a Dean Foods Company (NYSE: DF) brand, has tapped into consumers’ desire for portability and unique flavor profiles with its DairyPure Mix-ins® line of cottage cheese. DairyPure Mix-ins launched last year with four fruit flavors: Blueberry, Peach & Pecan, Pineapple, and Strawberry & Almond, and now expands the line to include Blackberries & Granola, as well as two new savory flavors; Creamy Jalapeño & Tortilla Strips and Sundried Tomato & Croutons. DairyPure Mix-ins is a low-fat, high-protein cottage cheese product packaged in single-serve containers, making them convenient for on-the-go snacking. “Mixing in the good stuff” helps set DairyPure apart from competitors with its deliciously unique and bold flavors and textures that complement the already nutrient-rich cottage cheese.

“At Dean Foods, we saw an opportunity to shift the perception of cottage cheese as old-fashioned and provide exciting options in a category that has long suffered from a lack of innovation. Our new line of Mix-ins does just that,” said Joe Reske, Senior Director, Marketing, DairyPure. “Our campaign highlights the nutritional benefits of eating cottage cheese, as well as the convenience and innovative flavors Mix-ins offers, all aimed at helping consumers maintain an active and flavor-filled lifestyle, while mixing up their snacking routines.”

DairyPure is supporting the launch with an integrated marketing campaign, which includes engaging digital ads, in-store shopper promotions, social media content, and earned media and influencer programs. The campaign’s overall creative theme showcases the simplicity of mixing in the good stuff for a sensational, protein-packed nutritious treat.

DairyPure Mix-ins have no artificial flavors, sweeteners or artificial growth hormones1, and are backed by DairyPure’s exclusive 5-Point Purity Promise®. Dean Foods’ commitment to delivering a great taste experience comes from decades of making high-quality dairy products.
