29/4/11 Press Release
Stamford, CT – April 27, 2011 – What does the Silk Road, delicious cuisine, and Saffron spices have in common? They’ll all
be featured on the NEW Saffron Road™ website,www.saffronroadfood.com, which launches today. Given the brand’s
outstanding response since its launch in August 2010, its web presence simply needed to be expanded and improved to allow
for more content and consumer engagement.
The new Saffron Road website enables consumers to dive deeper into the brand to understand its values and learn more
about its products. Sections on the site such as 10 Things to Share About Saffron Road highlight important values and current
news that the brand wants its consumers to be aware of.
“Our online presence is very important to us and it’s crucial for both our website and social media properties to give consumers
the level of information they need,” says Jack Acree, Executive Vice President of American Halal Co. (Saffron Road’s parent
company). In addition to more brand information, the site enables consumers to further engage in two-way communication with
the brand via several social media plug-ins.
“We care what our consumers think, and frequently utilize their feedback as we expand our product offerings and retail
partners,” says Adnan Durrani, CEO of American Halal Co. Given this priority for engagement, the site includes live feeds to
Facebook and Twitter, and includes a section to sign up for Saffron Road’s new e-newsletter. “In fact, many of these new
sections on our site are actually features that our consumers told us they expect from our brand,” adds Durrani.
Not only for consumers, the new site includes dedicated sections for news media and bloggers, as well as trade peers.
Please visit the new site at www.saffronroadfood.com to explore our brand and product offerings. Some of the news found on
the site includes the brand’s Best Product Award from the recent World Halal Forum, the brand’s recognition as One of the Top
10 Hottest Products to watch in 2011 at the NASFT Winter Fancy Food Show, and being named a “hit” by The Supermarket
Guru, Phil Lempert, on his popular New Products Hits & Misses video review show.
