Nabisco campaign for Newtons aims at boomers
Nabisco's new ad campaign for Newtons -- formerly Fig Newtons -- targets boomers rather than the younger audience normally sought by snack marketers. The McGarryBowen campaign thus takes a different approach. "We thought, let's stay away from cute, let's stay away from silly and let's do something a little more cerebral, a little more adult," said Tim Scott, president of the Chicago office of McGarryBowen.

The first Imagined Food Futures Symposium, taking place in Battle Creek, Mich., brings together 65 industry experts to discuss global food safety. "You know who you bought your product from, but who did they buy it from and who did they buy it from, and so on?" said former FDA official David Acheson, one of several presenters who urged greater transparency in the food supply chain.
