Consumer awareness campaigns in Australia and Sweden
Two new joint-marketing projects launched this month aim to boost awareness of certified sustainable seafood with retail and restaurant customers in Australia and Sweden, reports www.megafishnet.com with reference to MSC.
In Australia, John West has launched a magazine advertising campaign that will raise awareness of the MSC and their range of MSC certified Wild Alaskan salmon.
In Sweden, national retailer Coop has partnered with seafood brands Abba Seafood and Findus to communicate to customers via in-store information across all 720 stores, leaflets delivered to 3 million Coop members and a national advertising campaign. To support the campaign, MSC and Coop jointly launched a partner page on the MSC website which provides a direct link from a dedicated Coop URL www.msc.org/coop and increases visibility of the company's commitment to sustainable seafood.
Both projects build on recent joint-marketing successes in France (Les Jours Bleus), the Netherlands (Albert Heijn), Japan (Aeon and Co-Op), the UK (Sainsbury's and M&S), the US (Whole Foods Markets) and Canada (Loblaws).
