MINNEAPOLIS (March 27, 2017) – Wellness-minded consumers who strive to eat better often run into a little something called reality — jobs, kids, places to go and things to do, with little time left to prepare healthier snacks that fit their lifestyle. Now, Lorissa’s Kitchen, a brand that answers this call with responsibly raised protein snacks, brings its message home in its first fully integrated brand campaign created with agency partners Carmichael Lynch and Carmichael Lynch Relate, called “Snack more, make snacks less.”

Lorissa’s Kitchen, part of the Jack Link’s family of brands, made its debut in 2016 and prides itself on giving its customers what they have always wanted: protein snacks for healthy snacking wherever they are, without the hassle and prep time needed for measuring, preparing and packing up snacks into portable containers to take with them.
