Perfect Pairings
Meal Mates

Perfect Pairings.

This in-store campaign pairs Kraft with General Mills to cross-promote their grocery items while boosting Target’s P-Fresh products.


The three-phase program is simple: buy two items—one from Kraft, one from General Mills—and save.

Breakfast (April): Morning Mates
Lunch (September): Lunch Mates
Health & Wellness (January): Healthy Mates

Meal Mates

Morning Mates

The talk boxes at the ends of aisles are tagged with the Morning Mates program name and feature a QR code that gives customers access to recipes, coupons, and more. For easy product rotation, product “tabs” lock into the talk boxes and are replaceable. The abstract background image ties in with a Target P-Fresh breakfast product: eggs.
