Innis Maggiore among 2019 Telly Award winners for Smith's TV spot

CANTON, Ohio (August 7, 2019) — Innis Maggiore, the nation’s leading positioning ad agency, today announced it earned a 2019 Telly Award for a TV commercial it produced for Smith’s, one of the largest dairy processors in North America.

Awarded as a 30-Second Regional TV Spot in the Food/Beverage category, the commercial is titled “Tradition You Can Taste” and highlights Smith’s traditional, family-minded values. Located in Orrville, Ohio, Smith’s works with small, local farms to deliver a line of high-quality dairy products.

Innis Maggiore worked with Pittsburgh’s Przyborski Productions to produce the spot.

“Many families have enjoyed the tradition of Smith’s for generations,” said Jeff Monter, principal creative services and account lead. “We are privileged to help more people become aware of Smith’s legacy of innovation and quality.”

The award is among many Telly Awards Innis Maggiore has received over the last decade for its work in advertising. Innis Maggiore has handled branding work and advertisement for Smith’s since 2016.
