Keeping Advertising as Fresh as Our Products

While Foster Farms first began advertising back in 1960, nothing to date was as memorable as the exploits of the Foster Imposters, a pair of unsavory characters who tried, to no avail, to convince people that they were Foster Farms chickens. Their ragged appearance and their junk food diet gave them away every time. While theyve been MIA for the last couple years, the Imposters have finally decided to come out of hiding and will likely debut on TV again this fall. They just refuse to give up their quest to be Foster Farms Chickens with no added hormones, steroids or freezer burn.
