Organix Goodies Chessington Promotion To Run On 7.5 Million Packs
In a first for the baby food category, Organix Goodies is partnering with Chessington World of Adventures Resort and its new Gruffalo River Ride Adventure - a world first - as it splashes into the Wild Woods at the Resort.

The special on pack promotion, offering parents and little ones the chance to GO FREE, will run across 7.5 million Goodies multipacks and will begin shipping in April.

Chris Braitch, Customer Marketing Controller at Organix, says, “With Chessington and The Gruffalo, Goodies is partnering with two amazing family brands to bring the ultimate on-pack promotion to the baby food aisle. For shoppers driven by tasty, healthy snacking choices, convenience, price and promotion this on pack ticks all the boxes, it’s a first for the category, and a sure sales-driver for retailers.”

The promotion will run on multipacks of little ones’ favourite Goodies snacks, including oaty, crispy and fruit bars; corn puffs; the recently launched puffcorn; breadsticks and gingerbread men, farm animal and alphabet biscuits. Each multipack contains a voucher which gives one adult or one child free entry to Chessington World of Adventures Resort*.

Thanks to Goodies, the UK’s leading brand of baby and toddler snacks, little ones can come face to face with the Gruffalo, as they join Mouse on a picturesque riverboat journey through the deep dark wood with exciting twists and turns along the way.

The Goodies special promotion packs will begin shipping in April 2017, in store by May, with retailer support plans scheduled through June, July and August 2017.

As an extension of the partnership, for the first time parents will be able to buy their favourite Goodies snack foods and Organix top selling finger foods (carrot sticks and apple rice cakes) at Chessington World of Adventures Resort too. In addition, Goodies raspberry & apple oaty bars and cheese and herb puffs will be part of the Kids’ Meal Deal at the Original Sandwich Co and The Coffee Hut.

Chris Braitch says, “According to our research around a third of mums currently buy baby and toddler snacks from cafes and tourist attractions, but over 70% say they would buy more if the range improved with more choice and healthy options - making on-site availability of Organix and Goodies, brands that parents trust, good news for visitors to Chessington looking to purchase snacks on the go”.

All Organix and Goodies foods come with the Organix No Junk Promise, a stamp of reassurance for parents that they are made with the best organic ingredients and contain nothing unnecessary, so toddlers get great tasting snacks without the junk.

Chicken At Birds Eye Gets Relaunch
Birds Eye has relaunched and improved the quality of its entire chicken range, which will communicate that all Birds Eye Chicken is made with 100% chicken breast.

A vibrant design will put food at the heart of the packaging, along with a new chicken logo supporting the 100% message. The £7.1m integrated marketing campaign aims to remind and reassure UK mums about the quality and nutritional benefits of Birds Eye frozen chicken and will be supported with the launch of a brand-new premium range, Birds Eye Inspirations Chicken Mini Fillets.

Chicken is the UK’s no.1 growing protein and Birds Eye’s goal is to see this growth replicated in frozen, by directly challenging common category misconceptions. In addition to the central 100% chicken breast message, the new packaging and supporting campaign will communicate that:
* Birds Eye Chicken has no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives.
* All Birds Eye Chickens are Barn reared.
* All chickens are traceable to the farms where they are raised.
* We can trace all our feed back to the farm where it was grown.

An integrated communications campaign will roll out from 3 April until late November with strong TV coverage, outdoor and Birds Eye’s biggest ever investment in digital. A partnership with the UK’s most popular parenting site, Mumsnet, will underpin online comms and will be a key factor in reassuring mums about what’s in frozen chicken, as well as showing them modern and delicious ways to serve it to their families. The six-month partnership will feature across the entire Mumsnet platform and will include recipe inspiration, forum Q&As, ‘Facebook Live’ and Instavlogs – a first for Mumsnet. Outside of the Mumsnet activity, the online campaign will be bolstered by influencer partnerships and substantial social spend to support Facebook video content inspired by the TV ad.

Birds Eye will also expand its chicken portfolio with the launch of Birds Eye Inspirations Chicken Mini Fillets range. Having successfully created a premium tier within the Inspirations range with its fish offering, Birds Eye is aiming to replicate this within chicken.

The new Chicken Mini Fillets are made from succulent whole inner-fillet strips with a variety of different breadcrumbs and capitalises on the growing trend for casual and versatile adult dining options.

Speaking about Birds Eye’s chicken campaign. Adam Draper, General Marketing Manager said: “It’s an exciting time for Birds Eye, as we have a huge opportunity to lead the renovation of a huge category that has been unloved for years. Our intention for this relaunch is to address misconceptions about frozen chicken, focusing on the fact that Birds Eye is always made with 100% chicken breast and highlighting that it is a versatile and great tasting option for weekday family mealtimes.

"The introduction of our new Inspirations Chicken Mini-Fillets and Inspirations Kievs further illustrates our commitment to quality and this too will be supported with an extensive TV-led campaign from May.

"This is Birds Eye’s biggest ever advertising investment focused purely behind our chicken business, spending £7.1m. With extensive communications, product improvements to our core range, premium innovation and new packaging, we are confident that Birds Eye will change perceptions and drive growth for brand and category in 2017.”

Allott & Associates And Onwards Holdings Make Easy Steps To Take Business From Research To Market
For 2017, Allott and Associates Ltd and Onward Holdings Ltd will be teaming up to offer their respective clients a combined marketing and logistics solution.

The strategy will make it quicker and easier for companies’ goods to reach targeted markets and customers than was previously possible.

The strategic combination of Allotts’ 360° marketing services with Onward Holdings’ prime warehousing and dispatch capabilities makes this a perfect solution for firms seeking slick solutions to the promotion and distribution of their goods. Getting products to market as effectively as possible is at the core of this latest development.

The initial idea, brainchild of Neil Storey, managing director of Onward Holdings, includes a few short steps for companies to get their products ‘out there’. Firstly, clients will be able to accurately inform themselves about their chosen market with initial market research conducted by Allotts. They then have the option to boost their presence in their marketplace by adding a layer of targeted product marketing if desired.

Secondly, once they have spread the word and sales are flowing in, they can then pass subsequent product storage, order processing, stock management and dispatch, into the capable hands of Onward Holdings who will make sure all goods arrive safely at their destination. Minimum work and maximum return for the client is envisaged. Clients will know they are in experienced and safe hands.

Allotts, which has a client base ranging across the packaging, labelling, printing, engineering, food, security, waste management, plastics and corrugated industries, has over 20 years’ experience of providing effective marketing solutions to help its clients optimise their business opportunities.

Allott & Associates’ managing director, Philip Allott, said: “We continue to invest in all aspects of digital communications as part of our commitment to be at the forefront of technological developments. We want our clients to be able to benefit from our knowledge and experience in delivering cost-effective and fully integrated marketing campaigns. The additional option for clients to now tap into a well-established storage and distribution network is going to streamline the ‘concept to market’ chain significantly. We believe this going to bring enormous advantages for a number of businesses.”

Onward Holdings meanwhile, offers highly competitively priced warehousing and distribution centres - positioned perfectly for easy access to the major transport routes M1, A1 and M62.

The family-run company, has recently adopted OpenWMS, a specialist warehouse management system at its site in Castleford, West Yorkshire in order to streamline stock taking and shipping processes, to improve productivity by freeing up staff to concentrate on other duties and to maximise space utilisation.

OpenWMS is a highly accurate, configurable warehouse management system for both Third Party Logistics (3PL) providers and for owner-operated use. It creates a complete supply chain management solution suitable for a wide range of products including food and drink, packaging, electronics, IT equipment, homewares and office supplies.

Onward Holdings provides 21st Century solutions for businesses seeking warehouse space that will control their costs. OpenWMS will help optimise vehicle loads and routes, enhance picking/dispatch accuracy and timeliness as well as improve job costing and yield control.

The total benefits to clients of the collaboration will certainly be greater than the sum of its parts. Firms wishing to establish themselves in their chosen market would be able to select a ‘research to market ‘option that is backed up with the latest technology and know-how.

For further information contact: Allott and Associates on 01423 867264 or Onward Holdings on 01977 614007.
