" Arla Foods - BOB Brand Positioning and Innovation | Haines McGregor

Our Approach

Tasked with the challenge of driving value back into what is a top 10 grocery item was no mean feat! Working with the team at Arla we explored the motivations surrounding ‘wholesome goodness’ which underpins milk, to uncover richer spaces for a new family of premium milk brands. Tapping into consumer’s lifestyle aspirations and identity needs we built an engaging pipeline of concepts, encouraging consumers to trade up, whilst driving growth back into the category.

CREAM OF THE CROP

The results

In 2016 the new Arla family of premium milk brands, including B.O.B and Big Milk, delivered an impressive £38m value growth, the biggest of any of the Top 100 Brands in the category.

B.O.B, was awarded 2017 ‘Product of Year’ voted for by a panel of industry experts and 12,000 shoppers, as well as being a finalist Best New Brand at The World Dairy Innovation Awards.
