Commended: Dave UKTV
In a congested market, uktvG2 had no personality and no role in people’s lives, but, rebranded as Dave, it became the home of witty banter where celebrities like Stephen Fry and Paul Merton help to attract new viewers and contribute to the channel’s £5.4m profit.
Winner: Birds Eye Birds Eye Iglo Group
Birds Eye had already reassured consumers about the benefits of freezing food and the quality of ingredients with the Truth campaign, which went some way to restoring confidence in the UK frozen food sector but failed to increase sales.
The Good Mood Food campaign built on the success of the Truth campaign, reminding mums why Birds Eye makes teatime great. The kids eat food they love and mum is reassured that she is feeding her kids proper nutritious food. And because it is Birds Eye she knows there will be empty plates every time.
The frozen food market has returned to growth for the first time in over five years, up 3.1% in the 52 weeks to January 2008. Fish fingers are up by 11%; chicken dippers by 6.7% and chicken grills obtained their highest ever market share of 49.5%.
Birds Eye also launched the Omega 3 fish finger, which delivered 8.9% incremental growth in just eight months.
