Renowned duck brand, Gressingham Duck is launching a multi-platform campaign to raise awareness and boost sales of duck over the next four months.
The new ‘Dine in with Duck’ campaign will run until April with activity focused on Chinese New Year, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and Easter. It will primarily target 25 to 40 year olds, encouraging them to dine in and have duck as a special meal at home.
“Duck is a remarkable meat and cooking with duck makes a meal far more memorable. It tastes wonderful, is one of the healthier meats you can choose and is far easier to cook than people think,” explains Rebecca Alderton, brand manager at Gressingham Duck. “With this campaign we are targeting a younger audience that may not currently consider buying or cooking duck. We want to inspire them with our meal kits and recipe ideas and get people back in the kitchen preparing delicious dinners with duck.”
The campaign will be supported by collaborations with key brands, such as Blue Dragon, on-pack promotions and competitions, advertising, PR, new recipe development, as well as social media activity and an extensive influencer campaign.
“The ‘Dine in With Duck’ campaign is all about raising awareness of duck, its uses, how easy it is to cook and to get more people adding it to their shopping list. We want people to visit our website, enter competitions and request our recipe book. Duck is perfect for so many occasions, people just need to try it,” adds Alderton.
Gressingham Duck is a unique breed with more breast meat and less fat, making it a more succulent meat. All of Gressingham’s ducks are reared free-to-roam in barns on Red Tractor assured farms in Suffolk and Norfolk.
Gressingham Duck produces a range of products including fresh duck, its Bistro range of ready-to-cook duck dishes and its Aromatic Crispy Duck kits. They are available from Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose and Morrisons.
