BALTIMORE – July 14, 2015 – Warschawski, a full service branding, marketing, public relations, advertising and interactive agency, announced today that it has been hired by Pompeian, the number one importer of olive oil in America, headquartered in Baltimore. Warschawski will create a local public relations strategy to generate awareness in the community and assist with community outreach initiatives as part of the deal. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
Located in downtown Baltimore, Pompeian has sustained a strong presence in the community for over 100 years and was America’s first national olive oil company. Pompeian ships more than eight million gallons of olive oil in bulk through the Baltimore harbor each year, and bottles and packs it daily in its downtown facility. The company also produces gourmet vinegars and cooking wines, including the bestselling red wine vinegar in the country, and is proud to be the only extra virgin olive oil brand to be certifiably approved by the United States Department of Agriculture.
Pompeian recently expanded its Baltimore facility and launched a new production line for its eco-friendly cooking sprays, in an effort to increase capacity and product quality. Since 2008, the company has more than doubled its facility and now occupies 200,000 square feet. The recent expansions include a Tasting Lab and the new Pompeian Olive Oil Center.
“We are delighted to begin working with such a successful national brand with strong Baltimore roots,” said David Warschawski, CEO and founder of Warschawski. “Pompeian has established itself nationally with its innovative products and we are excited to create a strong, local branding strategy in the Baltimore community.”
“Being a Baltimore-based company is an important element to our brand’s identity, and we believe that this partnership with Warschawski will help further highlight our devotion to the local community and improving the area,” said David Bensadoun, CEO of Pompeian.
