SALT LAKE CITY, January 27, 2010 - Integrated Marketing Group (IMG) was chosen by Novus International to help create an identity for and formally launch Stratum Nutrition, the company's newly formed human nutrition division. IMG will help manage overall branding efforts including logo development, strategic positioning and creative development, as well as execute a targeted public relations campaign.
As a global leader in animal agriculture health and nutrition, Novus International has been playing an active, albeit behind-the-scenes role in human nutrition since its inception in 1991. The company's core competency is in creating science-based, nutritional solutions for the daily health and welfare concerns that farmers have for their animals. Drawing upon this nutritional solutions-based business approach, Novus is launching Stratum Nutrition, a dedicated human nutrition division that will include ingredients and technologies that can be directly utilized in supplements, beverages and foods.
"We look forward to working with Novus to introduce Stratum Nutrition to the industry, as well as collaborate on branding efforts for the company's specialty ingredients," stated Jeff Hilton, IMG co-founder and partner. "Novus's commitment to product innovation, clinical research and intellectual property will greatly enhance Stratum Nutrition's success in the human health market."
"IMG's knowledge of the dietary supplement, food and beverage ingredient markets made them an ideal partner to help Novus brand and unveil our dedicated human nutrition division, Stratum Nutrition," stated Thad Simons, president and CEO, Novus International. "We feel their expertise is invaluable as we introduce our portfolio of innovative specialty ingredients for human health applications."
