Perhaps the latter are nonetheless pissed off about Waitrose’s clumsy app-based buyer loyalty scheme (it takes about 5 minutes on the until and solely works with sign.)
So from adam&eveDDB it’s ‘Meals to be ok with,’ with nary a point out of worth. the results of a survey of 4,000 prospects and “companions” it appears (companions = Waitrose employees.)

“With prospects turning into more and more discerning about the place they spend their cash, our ambition is to make sure that our model refresh will assist to make Waitrose really feel extra related and extra compelling for our prospects.”
Media company MG OMD’s Geraldine Ridgway says: “Inside this marketing campaign it was essential that we not solely landed (lauded?) high quality and style, however efficiently communicated to our viewers the lengths Waitrose goes to relating to sustainability and welfare too.
“In consequence, we’ve created a multi-channel marketing campaign, which incorporates a mixture of excessive influence codecs to boldly land Meals To Really feel Good About, alongside a knowledge led concentrating on method, to make sure we’re reaching essentially the most related audiences and most significantly, our audiences are seeing all proof factors.”
Hmm. Knowledge-led concentrating on as within the loyalty scheme?
