Beef Jerky Brand Encourages Mudders to Protein Up and Help Support Wounded Warrior Project(R) Through Oberto's $100,000 Donation

SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/07/14 -- Oberto, the nation's leading all natural jerky brand, is pleased to announce its new partnership with Tough Mudder, the world's premier obstacle course series, designed to challenge the toughest of the tough. Oberto, known for its high in protein, all natural beef jerky, is joining the Tough Mudder family to promote the Oberto America's PROtein™ campaign, which urges consumers to eat well and be active. Oberto will be an experiential partner at all Tough Mudder events in North America with sampling and on-site fan engagements.

"Partnering with Tough Mudder is a great opportunity for us to showcase our all natural jerky at events with fans looking to 'Eat Excellent' and 'Be Excellent,'" said Greg Yahn, Vice President of Marketing for Oberto Brands.

The alliance between Oberto and Tough Mudder will highlight Oberto's America's PROtein campaign -- a yearlong partnership between Oberto and some of the world's greatest athletes, including Louie Vito, as well as celebrity trainer and nutritionist, Harley Pasternak. As part of the campaign, Oberto and influential athletes will come together to inform fans of the value and role of lean, all natural protein in their daily lives.
