GLENVIEW, Ill., March 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, known for its iconic silver packaging, is releasing an engaging 60-second video entitled "6 Days to Delicious," which proudly showcases its four key standards paramount to creating America's favorite cream cheese. In addition, PHILADELPHIA will be donating $1 for every share of the video to Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry® campaign to launch its new year-long partnership.

As consumers grow increasingly interested in learning more about the brands they love and how their food is made, PHILADELPHIA has developed this campaign to outline its high standards and the story behind the silver of PHILADELPHIA. While PHILADELPHIA has been making top selling cream cheese since 1872, this is the very first time the 140-year-old brand is offering the story of its high standards directly to consumers.

The four PHILADELPHIA Standards include:

  • Fresh Local Milk and Real Wholesome Cream: PHILADELPHIA uses milk sourced from dairy farms local to where the cream cheese is made, and combines it with real, wholesome cream to create a perfectly delicious cream cheese
  • From Farm to Our Fridge in Just Six Days : Fresh milk from nearby farms is made into cream cheese and refrigerated at PHILADELPHIA creameries in Beaver Dam, Wis. and Lowville, NY in just six days
  • Limited use of preservatives: No preservatives are found in the cream cheese brick varieties
  • Real Ingredients: Starting with crisp jalapenos  in its most recent variety, Spicy Jalapeno (just launched on March 4), to crunchy pecans in its Honey Nut variety, PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese provides a delicious taste with each flavor

"From bagels to cheesecake, PHILADELPHIA always provides a perfectly delicious taste experience, because we refuse to settle for anything but the best when it comes to making our cream cheese," said Nina Barton, senior director, PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese. "We never compromise or take shortcuts, and that's why when it comes to cream cheese, Philadelphia sets the standard."

In addition to proudly showcasing its standards, PHILADELPHIA is also announcing a new partnership with national nonprofit Share Our Strength® and its No Kid Hungry campaign to help end childhood hunger in America. For every video share via Facebook and Twitter, PHILADELPHIA will donate $1 to No Kid Hungry, up to $50,000. According to Share Our Strength, every dollar donated to No Kid Hungry can help connect a child in need with up to 10 meals. Learn more about the partnership and donation process at CreamCheese.com/NKH.

As a national No Kid Hungry sponsor, the brand is donating $100,000 in addition to its video sharing campaign, for a total of up to $150,000 to help end childhood hunger in the United States. PHILADELPHIA will be supporting Share Our Strength throughout the year in a number of different initiatives, including national brand sponsorship of Taste of the Nation® and Share Our Strength's Bake Sale for No Kid Hungry fundraising programs, which run from April – October and March – October respectively.

The new PHILADELPHIA standards video "6 Days to Delicious," is available to view on the brand's YouTube channel and website and is being supported through cinema (PG and PG-13 movie from March 22April 5) and online advertising. This video is part of a larger marketing campaign showcasing PHILADELPHIA's standards and was launched in January 2013 through television, print, digital and in-store elements. The brand has also created a new silver PHILADELPHIA Standards seal that is present throughout all advertising and is displayed on packaging to remind consumers of its commitment and dedication to high quality.
