Challenge

Verlasso, which cares for fish health and the surrounding ecosystem, needed to convince seafood buyers that its farmed salmon is a healthy, sustainable and great-tasting choice.

Solution

Linhart PR (LPR) helped Verlasso tell its holistic sustainability story consistently through earned and owned media while engaging influencers and defending the brand against attacks by:

1. Using owned (blog, e-newsletter and website) and social channels (Facebook, Twitter) to share the sustainability story and integration of other topics like reduced feeder fish dependency, low pen density and salmon health
2. Leveraging the unprecedented announcement of Verlasso earning a “Good Alternative” buy ranking from the respected Monterey Bay Aquarium® Seafood Watch® program, the first and only farmed Atlantic salmon to be so recognized
3. Positioning Verlasso’s Scott Nichols as a sustainable farmed salmon thought leader
4. Creating response plans and messages for attacks on the brand and its practices

Results

  • Established relationships with influential journalists/bloggers including Marc Gunther (GreenBiz, Guardian); Elizabeth Weise (USA Today); multiple food writers and the Washington Post; and more
  • Secured media coverage reaching more than 25 million consumers, influencers, chefs and seafood buyers with a breakthrough sustainability story
  • Grew website traffic, e-newsletter subscribers and open rates, and social following and engagement
  • Blunted or converted attacks by critics and competitors into engagement opportunities
