Case study

Mid-week meals with The Doctor’s Kitchen and Tenderstem® broccoli

The brief

Leading fresh produce brand Tenderstem® asked us to develop a creative multi-channel campaign that would position Tenderstem® broccoli as the perfect ingredient for mid-week meals in order to encourage spur-of-the-moment cooking. Our aim was to highlight versatility and ease of cooking, making Tenderstem® the perfect vegetable to have in the fridge whatever you fancy making. We were asked to reach time-pressured and health-conscious confident cooks.

The delivery

Under the ‘Make Every Dish a Little Adventure’ campaign, we brokered a collaboration with Dr Rupy Aujla, Sunday Times bestselling author, NHS GP and founder of The Doctor’s Kitchen.

We collaborated with Dr Rupy to create three new Tenderstem® recipes, fronted with relatable, instructional videos. This video content was used extensively for social advertising to reach Tenderstem®’s target audience as well as appearing on Rupy’s channels in front of his 200,000-strong audience of engaged followers.

Dr Rupy’s recipes, inspired by cuisines from around the world, also formed the basis of a media relations campaign to secure editorial mentions for Tenderstem® broccoli and to land the brand’s key messages in the media.

Finally, we rolled out a scheme of influencer gifting in January, linking our collaboration with Dr Rupy to Veganuary and the release of his latest cookbook.
