CHICAGO, IL

Krakus®, a true imported Polish Ham, returned as a proud sponsor of the 2017 Taste of Polonia festival. The city's most popular imported ham celebrated by treating festival-goers to delicious product samples, fun giveaways and coupons, and a kids' back-to-school recipe contest. Basia Brown, host of the local TV show "Poland on a Plate," offered cooking demonstrations at the Krakus tent.

Krakus also celebrated its first year as the Official Deli Meat of the Chicago Fire Soccer Club by bringing in an inflatable soccer goal. The brand is proud to be "Feeding the Fire" and sharing its delicious flavors with fans and foodies alike this season.
