Adams™ Wins W3 Silver Award In International Website Competition

Stocks in this article: CENT

At the 8 th annual W3 awards ceremony in September, Adams, a pet-friendly flea and tick control brand of parent Central Garden & Pet Company, received the W3 Silver Award in the Consumer Goods Website category. The W3 Awards honor creative excellence on the web and recognizes the creative and marketing professionals behind award winning sites, videos and marketing programs. Founded in 2006, the W3 is sanctioned and judged by the International Academy of the Visual Arts, an invitation-only body consisting of top-tier professionals from a “Who’s Who” of acclaimed media, interactive, advertising and media firms. This year over 4,000 entries were submitted from around the world.

The silver award for Adams was based on the website’s creativity, usability, functionality, visual design and ease of use. Central’s collaboration with Active Ingredients, a digital marketing agency, enabled Adams to create the award-winning website helping pet owners gain awareness in an engaging, easy to navigate site.

The new Adams website serves as a foundation for Smarter Pet Care; a place where pet parents can go to find great information on how to take better care of their pets. The site provides expert tips, articles, and detailed product information so pet owners can determine the products they need and find them online or at a nearby retailer.

“Just like you don’t always have to go to the doctor to take care of your kids, you don’t always have to leave your house to take care of your pet,” said Steve LeVeau, Director of Marketing - Animal Health for Central Garden & Pet. “That’s where the new Adams website can help. It empowers pet owners with the information they need to help take care of their pets at home.”

The Adams brand provides a portfolio of products that help meet many of the at-home pet care needs, including flea and tick protection and other health and wellness solutions. Adams products are available at retailers nationwide. Consumers can use the convenient online store locator at to find the store carrying Adams™ products closest to their home.
