Weight Watchers Put Their Pounds Into Home & Away Sponsorship Deal

Weight Watchers from Heinz, the No. 1 Frozen Ready Meal brand, is supporting the brand in a multi-million pound media deal, which aims to drive awareness and sales of the Weight Watchers from Heinz range.

By sponsoring the programme Home & Away, the brand will reach up to 22 million viewers a year with idents on the prime-time 6.30pm and 1.15pm slots on Channel 5, as well as repeats on Channel 5+1 and 5*, which together feature 6 episodes a day.

Running from 16 January until 5 August, the idents promote a Feel Good factor around the Weight Watchers from Heinz range and the support it provides consumers in managing their weight. The idents associate the modern brand with fun, charming, colourful and positive memories - as well as Weight Watchers from Heinzs role in everyday weight management.

Predominately targeting women, the brand focuses on the options that are available for consumers throughout the week, with a different meal featured each day in the sponsorship to demonstrate the variety in the Weight Watchers from Heinz range:

Weight Watchers from Heinz Chicken in White Wine and Pasta with green beans on Mondays
Weight Watchers from Heinz Hearty Vegetable Broth Soup on Tuesdays
Weight Watchers from Heinz Mushroom Rigatoni on Wednesdays
Weight Watchers from Heinz Sweet & Sour Chicken with Rice on Thursdays
Weight Watchers from Heinz Salmon & Broccoli Wedges on Fridays
Weight Watchers from Heinz Beef & Red Wine Casserole with potatoes on Saturdays

The sponsorship includes a 15 second ident at the beginning of the programme, with 5 seconds both into and back from the break, as well as 10 seconds at the end of the programme. With such high visibility, Weight Watchers from Heinz hopes to drive regular purchase of the brand among consumers. The end frame reads: Weight Watchers from Heinz sponsors Home and Away.

In addition, Weight Watchers from Heinz is working with media partner Northern & Shell, as part of an integrated campaign, to reinforce its sponsorship of Home & Away, as well as create further awareness of its brand by reaching a slightly younger audience e.g. 35 plus females. The media package includes advertising in three print titles, including OK magazine and The Express (main paper & supplements).

Sally Marshall, Weight Watchers from Heinz Marketing Manager, comments: Although January is the most popular time of year for consumers to start thinking about managing their weight, they can enjoy our delicious, health conscious meals throughout the whole year.

We believe that our exciting range contains such a variety that it caters to everyones taste and that our sponsorship of Home & Away will strike a chord with consumers looking to effectively manage their weight throughout the week.

With a selection of modern recipes, of which some are one of your five a day, we are confident that they will appeal to all types of people, which will help boost sales of the range and the overall frozen ready meal category whilst support our consumers food objectives.

Weight Watchers from Heinz is the No. 1 Frozen Ready Meal brand with unit sales +4.3 % year on year. The frozen ready meal category is worth 459 million and Weight Watchers from Heinz has a 14.2 % volume share of the market & 13% value sales with value sales +5.8 % year on year.

Premier Double Marketing Spends On Power Brands
Premier Foods plans to double marketing spend behind its power brands this year as part of its long term recovery plan to improve the business performance, while slashing costs in other areas, Marketing Week reports.

The company outlined its Power Brand strategy to focus on Hovis, Ambrosia, Mr. Kipling, Sharwoods, Loyd Grossman, Bisto, Oxo and Batchelors last year as part of a restructure that saw the business split into two divisions and the group chief operating officer role axed.

The company will launch TV ad campaigns for six of the eight brands within the first quarter of the year in a bid to boost brand engagement and sales and says the ad campaigns will spearhead a full programme of new product innovation, promotions and marketing throughout the year.

The food company is mired in debt following a number of costly acquisitions in previous years and has struggled to repay its 850m debts. Its banks recently granted the company extra time to negotiate its finances.

Premier expects to double its 20m cost reduction target by 2013 by creating a stronger and more efficient business to drive its recovery and growth plans.

It will review every aspect of costs and expects to introduce a number of cost saving initiatives this year, including reducing the workforce by 5%.

It is looking to sell off a number of brands to reduce the companys debt and has already sold its Quorn, Brookes Avana chilled food business and four Irish grocery brands.

CEO Michael Clarke says: We continue to deliver on our plans to stabilise the business and invest in our recovery and future growth. While decisions to reduce the workforce are always difficult, Im convinced we are taking the right steps in the long term interests of the business, employees and our stakeholders.
