Year’s first campaign by McCain

Have your say

SCARBOROUGH based food giant McCain has launched its first advertising campaign for 2011.

The frozen food company, based at Havers Hill in Eastfield, has launched a £2.5 million outdoor, press and online campaign promoting McCain Rustic Oven Chips.

Launched this month, the campaign centres on the message that Rustic Oven Chips are ‘3% fat. 100% guilt free’.

The outdoor advertising campaign kicked off on Monday for four weeks and will be supported in press titles targeting pre-family females.

A Facebook campaign was also launched this week, with both aimed at attracting new consumers.

Alan Castle, head of Customer Marketing, said: “McCain Rustic Oven Chips are a healthier chip and at the beginning of the year, when health and dieting is front of mind, we believe the significant investment we have made in this light-hearted campaign will cut through to the target audience leading to an uplift in sales for retailers.”
