A Case Study…

A trade association in our food vertical encountered several media crises in 2023. In February, a study alleging negative health impacts of one of the industry’s products was published by a prominent journal. Kellen knew of and was prepared for the release of this new study in advance. Kellen’s team quickly got to work evaluating the study, handling media relations, updating members and providing them with recommended strategies. Specifically, our strategic communications team conducted media tracking, social listening, sentiment evaluation, and developed a landing page about the product, which provided one-stop information for stakeholders seeking information.

The association’s statements were included in almost all the significant media coverage, which helped to positively impact most mainstream/trade media stories. Some of the coverage included: CNN, USA Today, Washington Post,, People, and Forbes.

Our client was the only leading industry voice on this issue globally.
