Campaigns Imminent: Arla Foods to invest £100m in health marketing, at least 25% in digital


Subject: Millennials, Health, In-Store, Digital, Social Media, Experiential, TV, Outdoor.

CompanyArla Foods is a major supplier of specialty cheese and dairy products. The company has three major brands: Arla, Lurpak and Castello cheeses that are sold worldwide.

Opportunity: As part of its 2020 strategy announced in December, Arla Foods plans to invest a minimum of 25% of its marketing spend on digital, so sellers should be on high alert for new revenue opps over the course of the next 3.5 years. Newly appointed UK boss Tomas Pietrangeli is leading these efforts. He was appointed in March, the same month that UK marketing VP Sarah Baldwin left. 

In hopes of raising UK revenue from £2bn to £2.6bn in the next four years, the company is planning major investments in Arla (set to be worth £400m), Lurpak and Castello brands. 

Plans are to raise net revenue from new products to at least 10%, which will see 30+ new healthier dairy products and 50 new range extensions come out over the next few years. Look for a specific focus on increasing dairy consumption in breakfast, snacking on the go, convenience and hospitality channels. Arla plans to invest £100 million in promoting healthier dairy products vai campaigns encouraging nutritious eating. 

Sellers should engage ahead of Q2, its traditionally largest spending period. Q3 tends to see a larger amount than Q1 and Q4, so there may also be some last minute opportunities. Carat UK won media planning and buying last October.

Additional Information

Media Spend: Spent £22.2m last year, nearly a 30% drop from 2014, according to Nielsen. Key media categories include TV, outdoor, press and door drop.
