From the very beginning, the Zlato polje brand has been synonymous with the highest quality. The tradition of polenta has been delighting generations with its flavour for half a century, which is why ŽITO, on the occasion of its golden anniversary, wanted to remind all culinary enthusiasts about the dish that our grandmothers and mothers used to serve us.


On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of polenta from the Zlato polje brand, how can we present the taste of tradition and the core values of the brand in a modern way, paying tribute to the dish that our grandmothers and mothers used to serve us?

Communication strategy

Implementing and intertwining

The communication strategy combines the recognisable elements of polenta from Zlato polje – the logo and the colour scheme of the brand’s visual identity, the anniversary logo and the “50 years of polenta” packaging. The warmth of the slogan, which brings together all the values of Zlato polje, completes the communication.

The strategy included the design of PR content and the production of ads and web banners, which were distributed across online and printed media. We used this content to strengthen the brand’s reputation and raise awareness of polenta’s tradition and signature taste. At the same time, we highlighted the fact that polenta can be part of a balanced diet, as it has a favourable nutritional composition and is recognised as a good companion to modern diets.

Designing a recipe booklet
The sky is no limit

Golden yellow and creamy polenta has been trending for half a century. The slogan of its 50th anniversary campaign, “Golden polenta that has been delighting us for years”, is in line with the values of Zlato polje (natural ingredients, flavour, tradition and high quality) and highlights the distinctive golden yellow colour of the cornmeal.

Direct marketing

An important element in raising brand awareness was the distribution of the recipe booklet Ustvarjajmo z zlato klasiko to households across Slovenia.

Through creative design, content and graphics, the booklet presents the key elements of the Zlato polje polenta visual identity, through which we learn about the brand’s values (taste, tradition and high quality). It contains inspired and modern polenta recipes by culinary expert and blogger Sašo Šketa.


Client testimonial

Zlata polenta is a versatile dish that has delighted and influenced generations, evoking a sense of homeliness and tradition. By celebrating its jubilee, we also wanted to inspire young culinary enthusiasts with this traditional dish, and at the same time present them with new top quality polenta dishes.
