We started making Veggie-Go’s in January 2011 a er returning home to
Boulder, Colorado a er a year of living, working, and most importantly
ea ng on organic farms in Greece, Italy, Spain, Switzerland and France. We
became addicted to the way we were ea ng on the farms where our diets
were made up almost en rely of the fresh, organic produce we were
UponUpon returning home we were shocked by the American way of ea ng and
what was being called “food”. We decided to take ma ers into our own
hands and create a snack the embodied the fresh, organic produce we were
growing; but that also ﬁt into the American on-the-go lifestyle. And thus
Veggie-Go’s were born!
Our ini alOur ini al goal was simply to sell Veggie-Go’s at our local farmers market.
The response was overwhelmingly posi ve and our customers encouraged
us to try to get Veggie-Go’s into some of the local health food stores. As
soon as we did, we quickly realized that we were the only ones pu ng
veggies in a fruit leather. That just added fuel to our ﬁre and ever since we
have been working relessly to bring Veggie-Go’s to a store near you!
Chief Health Officer:
The Chief Health Oﬃcer (CHO), is the parent who is in charge of her family’s health and well-be-
ing. One of her biggest priori es is making sure that her
childchildren get the nutrients they need in order to live a healthy life. She considers this her respon-
sibility because she does the shopping and cooking for the family. That being said, she frequently
ﬁnds herself struggling to get her children to eat their fruits and vegetables, which o en leads to
unwanted meal me drama.
The CHO needs an easy, drama free way to get fruits and vegetables into her child’s diet.
Mary is a busy mother of two who loves being a mom
almost as much as she loves her children. Her kids’
health is her number one priority, and she does
eeverything she can to ensure that they get the very best
foods. Some mes this means paying a li le extra for the
healthier op on, but Mary considers her children’s
health worth the extra dollar. She enjoys sharing her
family's accomplishment on social media so the in-laws
can stay up to date on the kids lives. When her kids are
at school, she can o en be found searching healthy
rrecipes and DIY projects on Pinterest. Her baking
essen als include almond ﬂour and coconut sugar. Mary
is infamous in her house for sneaking vegetables into
The objec ve is to change the behavior of the Chief
Health Oﬃcer. In order to change the behavior of
the Chief Health Oﬃcer we need to create brand
awareness for Veggie-Go’s. To make the Chief Health
Oﬃcer aware of Veggie-Go’s we plan to posi on
Veggie-Go’s as a nutri ous alterna ve to fruits and
vegetables that both kids and parents can enjoy.

While all of the abWhile all of the above are in the fruit snack category,
these compe tors contain added sugars, fruit purees,
and juice concentrates. Veggie-Go’s does not contain
any of these addi ves and are made en rely from
fruits and vegetables.
While tWhile tradi onal fruits and vegetables are natural and
nutri ous, they are also messy with a short shelf life.
Veggie-Go’s come in an easy to dispose of wrapper
that doesn’t rot over me.
With half a serving of fruits and vegetables in every
strip, Veggie-Go’s oﬀer an easy way to sneak
nutri on inutri on into a child’s diet. Since Veggie-Go’s are
made with just fru s and veggies, they don’t contain
the added sugars, GMO’s or gluten that other fruit
While families know that it is important to eat nutri ously, many
ﬁnd it diﬃcult to ﬁnd a healthy op on that both parents and
children will enjoy. Because Veggie-Go’s are made strictly from
fruits and vegetables, they oﬀer a healthy alterna ve to other fruit
snacks that are loaded up with sugars and fruit concentrates.
VVeggie-Go’s oﬀer a tasty and convenient way for parents and
children to get their fruits and vegetables that come in an easy to
dipose of wrapper. They are one of the only fruit leathers that
contain vegetables, which opens up an en rely new market of
healthy snack alterna ves.
PParents are prone to purchasing products from
popular brands that are labeled as “healthy”, even
if they are not the best op on. They purchase
these products because they know their kids will
eat them. Therefore parents feel good about what
they are feeding their child.
Veggie-Go’s eliminate the drama of ge ng children to
eat the healthy foods they need, while avoiding
addi ves. The Chief Health Oﬃcer can relax, knowing
that her child’s diet is one less thing to ﬁght about.
A er experiencing a healthy European lifestyle while abroad, John and Lisa McHugh recognized a
need in the snack market for an organic and fresh product adapatable for the on-the-go
AmeriAmerican. In January 2011, Veggie-Go’s was born. Veggie-Go’s ﬁlled a niche in the snack market
that no other company had. With a half of serving of vegetables, a half of serving of fruits, no
added sugars, and no GMO’s in the gluten free strip, Veggie-Go’s make for the perfect healthy
By ini a ng this campaign, we hope to increase sales, while also increasing brand awareness and
comprehension of Veggie-Go’s in our target audience.
