Honest Eggs Co. creates FitChix: The first fitness trackers designed for chickens via VMLY&R

Honest Eggs Co. and VMLY&R have launched FitChix, the first-ever fitness trackers designed for chickens. Accompanying the innovation is an integrated campaign designed to show people how free and healthy Honest Eggs Co. chickens really are.

VMLY&R collaborated with Airbag to create ergonomic, chicken- friendly fitness trackers that doesn’t impose on day-to-day life and behaviour.

Multiple prototypes were engineered and calibrated to properly capture the activity levels of individual chickens – including step counts, which are printed onto the eggs that Australians buy at the supermarket.

Said Honest Eggs Co. General Manager Roger Boyd “Honest Eggs Co. is on a mission to change egg farming for the better.

We launched FitChix to help monitor the health of our chicks and to continue to bring attention to why regenerative farming is better for the hens, the egg, the land, the farmer and the community.

In an extremely confusing category, Honest Eggs Co. is an easy choice as it is the one you can count on to be honest and transparent about the way we farm”.

As well as the fitness trackers and step count on each egg laid, FitChix will appear in OLV, OOH, Social and in-store to educate consumers on the importance of sustainable, regenerative farming practices.

Said Jake Barrow, Group Executive Creative Director of VMLY&R “The egg category is a minefield of naming conventions, all designed to sound like the chickens are getting a pretty good deal.

The reality is often otherwise. Right through from product, to campaign, to transaction point, FitChix is an innovation that delivers irrefutable proof that the chickens at Honest Eggs farms live a free and healthy life. So, make sure your next carbonara is an Honest one!”

Said Charmaine Griffith, Growth Director VMLY&R “As shoppers become increasingly conscious of their environmental impact, Honest Eggs Co. is helping to bring the promise of regenerative farming front and centre on supermarket shelves. As one of Australia’s foremost pioneers in this field, we’re proud to share their story.”
