Tangible messaging with FIJI Water

· Campaigns · , , ,

Earth’s Finest Morning.

Determining the best way to spread your brand’s messaging can be an overwhelming task. When we’re bombarded with messages about fake news and false claims, consumers are looking for brands to practise what they preach. FIJI Water is a brand that stands for healthy living, beautiful design and Earth’s Finest Water. These elements were at the heart of Keep Left’s planning when we curated Earth’s Finest Morning – an intimate morning retreat for the body and soul hosted by influencers Tim Robards and Anna Heinrich.

Given FIJI Water is already a much-loved brand in the Australian market, the team reached out to FIJI Water’s target market with an offering that would make the FIJI Water way of life a tangible experience – a star studded morning of relaxation and rejuvenation at a secret Darling Point location. Initiatives to increase brand awareness and portray existing messaging were woven through all consumer, online and media messaging.

Over the course of five months, our consumer brands PR team coordinated the event management, influencer engagement, talent management, consumer ballot, web design, product branding and social media outreach for Earth’s Finest Morning.

The essence of the event was to start the weekend the right way, the FIJI Water way. Attended by Sydney celebrities and influencers, a small selection of media and ten lucky competition winners and friends; guests were welcomed into a morning to be remembered. Following a workout led by the celebrity couple and a mindfulness meditation session, the 35 guests were treated to an impeccably styled healthy breakfast inspired by the FIJI Water brand, prepared by well-known Sydney stylist and chef Sarah Glover.

The morning was a hit with both attendees and the media, receiving broad coverage across online media and social channels. Coverage included two pieces on the Daily Mail and an estimated readership of 6 million people. With social media posts from both Anna Heinrich and Tim Robards, as well as influencers like Lisa Hyde, Chloe Chapman and Amelia Strofield, the event had a social media reach of approximately 900,000 users.

Engaging consumers with the FIJI Water brand in this way has left a lasting impression on the attendees and extended audience alike. FIJI Water was able to connect on an emotional and tangible level, reinforcing its brand value and messaging as Earth’s Finest Water.

Western Star butters up VIC & NSW

A 90th birthday voyage for iconic Australian butter brand.

Western Star is celebrating 90 years of butter making this year. To commemorate, Keep Left’s consumer PR team worked with Australia’s favourite butter to ‘butter up’ its home state of Victoria and New South Wales with a 90th Birthday Voyage.

A giant truck in the form of an iconic butter block on wheels departed its hometown of Cobden on its maiden voyage to Sydney, where Western Star gave away more than 90,000 samples of hot cross buns and Spreadable butter at the Sydney Royal Easter Show. Along the way, the big birthday truck spread plenty of ‘simple happiness’ by handing out Western Star Spreadable and hot cross buns at stops throughout the Western District of Victoria.

Western Star's 90th Birthday Butter Voyage

After leaving Cobden, where Western Star has been produced since 1926, the truck stopped in Warrnambool, Portland, Hamilton, Maryborough and Bendigo before arriving in Sydney just in time for Easter.

“For the past 90 years and to this day, Western Star butter has been expertly crafted in Cobden from just two natural ingredients—cream and salt”, said Cobden Plant Manager, Bruce Manson.

“We couldn’t do this without the Cobden community or our 250 farmers throughout the southwest region of Victoria, so it’s only fitting that our Birthday Voyage celebrates where it all began and those who helped us reach this milestone”.

Corangamite Shire Mayor and Cobden resident, Jo Beard, whose great grandfather was involved in the Western Star butter factory 90 years ago looks forward to welcoming the truck: “Western Star has made countless contributions to the Cobden community and regional Victoria over the past 90 years, from investing millions, supporting community initiatives and not to mention creating jobs. Western Star is truly engrained here”.

There’s no denying that Western Star is Australia’s favourite butter—it was first confirmed in 2006. Western Star Original Butter also was named the Grand Champion Butter at the 2017 Australian Grand Dairy Awards for the second year running—the highest honour in the industry.
