CHICAGO, IL
Tuesday, September 12th, 2017

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.

Krakus is a popular supporter of the Taste of Polonia. Both the brand and the event are rich in history and tradition.

Michael Baughman, Director of Marketing, Smithfield Foods"Krakus takes great pride in the significance of Polish history and tradition," said Michael Baughman, Smithfield Foods Director of Marketing. "We are excited to continue our more than 10-year partnership with the festival. Both Krakus and the Taste of Polonia have a rich tradition and history in Chicago, and it's great to interact with the local Polish community through our participation in this great event."
