In a racy series of ads featuring glamorous women in pin-up poses dressed only in milk, Chicago-based fairlife LLC today introduced a high-nutrition milk that will raise consumer interest for better tasting, more nutritious milk products. Launching in the Twin Cities, fairlife purely nutritious milk has 50% more natural protein and calcium and 1/2 the sugars of ordinary milk, made with real milk and no protein powders.
The milk is sold in 32-ounce and 52-ounce bottles with a suggested retail price of $2.99 and $3.99, respectively. After the Twin Cities, the product will be available in Denver and then across the Midwest, a company spokeswoman told Dairy Foods.
"Consumers are looking for better quality, great tasting nutrition that comes from the highest quality milk," said Steve Jones, chief executive officer of fairlife. "With fairlife, we're bringing them a delicious and more nutritious milk than anything in the market with a breakthrough campaign that shows how sexy vitality can be. And since fairlife milk comes from family-owned farms committed to quality, sustainability and animal comfort, consumers can feel good about the source too. We call it our from grass to glass promise."
Mike and Sue McCloskey, dairy farmers who co-founded fairlife, believed they could create new products to provide busy families like theirs with better nutrition from the wholesome goodness of real milk.
"Mike and I have been dedicated for years with ways to produce more nutritious milk," said Sue McCloskey. "We believe today's active families want more protein and calcium without lactose. We literally designed fairlife at our kitchen table combining my interest in healthy wellness products and Mike's veterinary and scientific background. That's what's led to this amazing and great-tasting milk."
Pioneers of the cold-filtration process to concentrate milk's best nutrients, the McCloskeys are also revolutionizing the dairy industry with their cutting-edge practices in sustainable agriculture and cow care, owed not only to Mike's background as a veterinarian but also to their shared belief in responsible farming.
Unlike anything the milk industry has ever seen, fairlife milk flows through soft filters to concentrate desired nutrients like protein and calcium, while separating out the fats and sugars from the milk. The brainchild of veterinarian turned dairy farmer Mike McCloskey, this now patented cold filtration delivers more of milk's best nutrients to people seeking great tasting natural nutrition in every delicious glass of fairlife purely nutritious milk.
