BROOKLYN, N.Y. (Sept. 14, 2015) — Field Trip Jerky, purveyor of premium, all-natural jerky, has partnered with leading active lifestyle agency Backbone Media to manage its public relations activities.
“Field Trip Jerky and Backbone both believe in the power of getting outside and we want to provide the ingredients necessary for any adventure,” says Field Trip co-founder Tom Donigan. “Backbone’s track record of communicating authentic brand messages with the active lifestyle consumer is unmatched and we’re excited to tell our story to an expanding audience across the U.S.”
Founded in 2010, Field Trip Jerky was borne out of three friends’ desire to create premium-quality jerky high in protein and free of ingredients that couldn’t be found in the kitchen cabinet. The brand has secured distribution with Starbucks and Jetblue, and continues to expand its footprint throughout New England, the Midwest, Texas and California.
“Field Trip Jerky not only makes tasty snacks packed with protein and other nutrients, but the brand has also shown an impressive ability to grow steadily through strategic partnerships and word of mouth. Whether the standby Original or Teriyaki, or one of the brand’s unique flavors like Honey Spice or Crushed Chilies, the Field Trip team make delicious, real food that’s great on the go,” says Backbone Media PR director Ian Anderson. “We see huge potential for the company and we’re excited to help continue expanding its reach.”
