Best known for its tomato products and ketchup, the company also owns the Sacramento® Tomato Juice brand. The company earned a Judge’s Choice Award for its 2021 campaign to launch its new Sacramento Bloody Mary Mix to restaurant operators nationwide. The campaign was noted for its intricate design reminiscent of a 1930s speak easy and the inclusion of ingredients within the bloody mary mix formula into the ad design. The campaign also earned a Gold Addy. The award-winning entry from the regional competition will now enter a five-state advertising competition with winning entries from that contest being automatically entered in the American Advertising Federation’s National Addy Awards event later this year.
