Sliced Sourdough

Puratos US announced today a campaign that celebrates the Sourdough baking trend and calls on bread lovers to support local chapters of Ronald McDonald House Charities® in their mission to support the health of children and their families.


Pennsauken, NJ, May 26, 2020

As part of Puratos’ ongoing digital expansion, #SourdoughDifference will feature videos and posts across FacebookTwitterInstagram and
LinkedIn, encouraging followers to post their own sourdough stories and photos, and engage with Puratos US sourdough experts.Riding the wave of excitement around Sourdough home-baking and in line with its commitment to support local communities, Puratos US today announced that through June 30, for every sourdough social media post tagged with #SourdoughDifference, Puratos will donate $1 to local chapters of Ronald MacDonald House Charities® (up to $10,000).

From a tour of Puratos’ Sourdough Library to a Share your Sourdough Fail series, #SourdoughDifference features unique content to excite both the new home-baker and the sourdough aficionado. The result is a forum to not only connect sourdough bakers with one another, but to channel that excitement into a good cause.

Andy Brimacombe, President of Puratos US, said: “The #SourdoughDifference campaign harnesses the growing passion for sourdough to support the incredible work of Ronald McDonald House – let’s make a #SourdoughDifference together.”

With over 3 million #sourdough posts on Instagram today, #SourdoughDifference answers the growing hunger for sourdough while supporting Puratos’ commitment to helping local communities and the baking industry through innovation.
