Oatly – It’s like milk, but made for humans
It was banned in Sweden three years ago, Oatly still wants to launch the same ad in the UK… but the world has moved on. How do we ensure the campaign generates debate, to propel the brand into the mind of consumers?
A hard working media relations campaign, with strategic placement of content, creation of loaded press releases, and hours upon hours on the phone. While the brand was worried about being sued, we advised that the world has moved on, and the biggest risk was that, in fact, no one cared. We created news stories, engaged with media on a one-to-one basis, built a solid media strategy, to ensure we were driving the debate to every corner of the UK. Our strategy was – take Oatly out of the East London bubble and into the mainstream media, where we can really drive a polarised debate.
