En Route To Winter Olympics, Kellogg's Team USA Turned Into Box Office Stars

By Barry Janoff

December 19, 2013: With less than 50 days until the Opening Ceremonies for the 2014 Winter Olympics, marketers and athletes are solidifying their activation leading up to and during and post-Games.

Kellogg's, an official partner of the U.S. Olympic Committee, plans to turn its roster of Olympic and Paralympic athletes, hopefuls and legends into box office stars.

Team Kellogg's, with about a dozen current and former athletes, will appear on cereal boxes such as Frosted Flakes, Corn Flakes, Froot Loops, Crispix, Apple Jacks and Raisin Bran; and on packaging for Kellogg's brands including Pop-Tarts and Eggo.

The limited-edition products will hit retail later this month.

Among the athletes, Gretchen Bleiler (snowboarding) will appear on packages of Nutri-Grain and Corn Pops; Torin Yater-Wallace (freeskiing) will be on packages of Pop-Tarts, Apple Jacks and Krave; Jim Craig (goalie for the gold-medal winning 1980 "Miracle on ice" hockey team) will be featured on packages of Corn Flakes and Raisin Bran; and the image of figure skating icon Kristi Yamaguchi will be on Crispix, Frosted Mini-Wheats, Kellogg's Fiber Plus and Eggo.

Amy Purdy (Paralympic snowboarding) will get a wide array of exposure on Crunchy Nut, Frosted Mini-Wheats, Smacks and Smart Start packaging.

The activation is part of the company's umbrella "From Great Things Come Great Starts" multi-media campaign, which includes TV, print, Internet and social media.

A "Give A Great Start" initiative features Team Kellogg's athletes will "[showing] their support by tweeting out with #greatstarts and encouraging consumers to do the same." For each tweet with that hash tag, Kellogg's will help provide breakfast for a child in need.

"We're thrilled to feature all of the Team Kellogg's athletes on packaging, as a majority of them compete for Team USA to make it to the Sochi Games," Noel Geoffroy, svp-marketing and innovation for Kellogg's U.S. Morning Foods, said in a statement. "Our athletes truly believe that from great starts come great things, and we're proud to showcase them as the face of our products."

In addition to the front-of-pack images, all of the Team Kellogg's athletes will also be featured on the back of specially-themed packages for a wide variety of Kellogg's brands.

The Winter Olympics will be held Feb. 7-23, 2014.
