Industry News: Rachel’s Announces Sponsorship of Good Food Channel for 2017


JANUARY 2017 – Rachel’s, Britain’s first organic dairy brand, will be back on the nation’s screens from 23rd January, as it today announces a 12-month sponsorship of the Good Food channel; the number one dedicated food channel in pay TV. Taking a 360° approach, the sponsorship will be supported by dedicated in-store, digital, PR and social media activity, following a significant £1million investment.

The sponsorship will see 14 unique idents featuring Rachel’s bestselling yogurts appear before some of the nation’s most loved food TV shows including content from across BBC and Channel 4, such as Great British Bake Off and Lorraine Pascale: How to be a better cook, as well as Good Food’s own commissioned content.

The idents, created by global agency The Story Lab, are inspired by Rachel’s naturally luxurious and irresistible yogurts and offer consumers pure indulgence. Depicting various characters enjoying Rachel’s yogurts in moments where they should be focusing their attention elsewhere, such as taking the kids to swimming lessons or carrying out household chores; the idents highlight that Rachel’s is too delicious to ignore, offering a piece of ‘Food Heaven’, featuring the official campaign strapline ‘Food Heaven, sponsored by Rachel’s’.

In addition, the sponsorship ensures brand association with trusted food experts and enables Rachel’s to reach an audience of food enthusiasts, 75% of which are interested in trying new recipes and 74% trialing and reviewing new products online, offering the potential for further brand promotion through other platforms.

Daniel Wheeler, Marketing Manager at Rachel’s, commented: “We are pleased to announce our ‘Food Heaven’ sponsorship with the Good Food channel and are confident that it will help us to reach consumers who are as equally fanatic about high quality, organic food produce as we are. We’re extremely proud of the Rachel’s range which offers a wide variety of different yogurts for different occasions. Not only are our yogurts intended to be enjoyed on their own in all of their glory, but our big pots are also the perfect ingredient for cooking. We were keen to highlight this unique versatility within the idents and through the use of different scenarios, we are really pleased with the finished result which perfectly communicates the different moments where Rachel’s can be enjoyed.”

iPhone app delivers geo-targeted and personalized news

Taking advantage of today’s mobile geo-targeting capabilities, SPUN delivers city-specific news and information via an iPhone app.

Several years back we saw two separate efforts to deliver hyperlocal news in printed form – first The Printed Blog, then a similar effort from The New York Times – and recently we came across something similar in digital form. Now taking advantage of today’s mobile geo-targeting capabilities, SPUN delivers city-specific news and information via an iPhone app.

Created by the Brooklyn-based makers of Broadcastr, another location-based app, SPUN is “the easiest way to keep your finger on the pulse of your city. It’s a constantly updated urban guide, insider tip sheet, and local news on steroids,” its makers explain. Specifically, the app curates stories from hundreds of news and lifestyle sources – including new restaurant openings, fashion boutiques, and concerts, for example – and “spins” them into mobile form for local users. SPUN users can follow topics they’re interested in; they can also get reminders when a local show is about to open. In fact, the app will even alert them when they’re nearby a place they want to check out. SPUN will soon be live in New York, Boston, Philadelphia, DC, Miami, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Austin, Portland, and Seattle, with further locations following in the future.

“About 66 percent of Americans access local content in some form every day, but discovering the best stuff about where you live is time consuming and difficult,” SPUN’s makers explain. Location-minded entrepreneurs around the globe: how about delivering a similar local guide in your part of the world?

Drinking the equivalent of two small glasses of wine each day helps post-menopausal women retain old bone, making their bones stronger overall and helping to fend off osteoporosis, according to a new study. The study found that when post-menopausal women drank, their bone turnover rate decreased—and that when they stopped drinking, it increased, according to the Daily Mail. Alcohol was so effective at this that it rivaled popular bisphosphonate drugs. Still, a representative of the National Osteoporosis Society warned women against going too wild, lest they tipsily hurt themselves. "Excessive alcohol increases the risk of fractures," she says, "as well as increasing the risk of falls.
