Ingham’s Always Good rebrand has been recognised as revitalising “Australia’s leading poultry producer” – with the agency behind this, We Are Sprout, named a finalist in two categories (Brand Revitalisation and Independent Agency of the Year) at the 2023 Australian Marketing Institute (AMI) Marketing Excellence Awards.
“Our brand revitalisation has been a complete success and we have been fortunate to have partnered with We Are Sprout to achieve exceptional results,” says Ingham’s Chief Strategy and Planning Officer Seb Brandt.
We Are Sprout has been around for a busy two years, and at the helm is founder and Director Drew Ridley (previously Design Intoto, SGK, Love ‘Em Pet Treats and Loop Branding), and Account Service Lead ‘chief schmoozer’ Katie Reeves.
“Our team of problem solvers, insight-driven strategists, design experts and storytellers were excited by the challenge to reinvigorate Ingham’s brand. We’re here for brands who want to be noticed, chosen, and loved, and we were thrilled to work with Ingham’s wonderful team to bring this brave new brand identity to life,” says Drew Ridley.
“We set out to create a game-changing, flavour-packed brand for Ingham’s, that would have the audience coming back for second, third, and more helpings – across customers, consumers, and employees. The results have shown this has been a category-defining rebrand,” says Katie Reeves.
The masterbrand strategy: Always Good
We Are Sprout, in collaboration with Ingham’s, conceived a strategy embracing food and cultural trends – focussing on how people connect over food and care about their choices: Always Good – showcasing how Ingham’s is good to its animals, its people, the environment and delivers deliciously good food.
A new Ingham’s Always Good logo was developed, and new packaging was launched across Ingham’s range of around 140 products (SKU’s). Simultaneously commencing the roll-out of environmentally friendly packaging – with Ingham’s committed to 100% reusable, recyclable or compostable packaging by 2025.
Ingham’s Always Good was launched across all channels, included Ingham’s first TVC in over a decade, a five-part content series, social media, digital advertising, retail media advertising, and experiential trade show activations.
Celebrity chef Manu Feildel joined the team for a dedicated ‘Dinner Done’ campaign, to further elevate Ingham’s brand and reinforce Always Good by helping people combat the everyday challenges associated with weekday dinners.
New, innovative products were launched including the AirMAZING 50% Less Fat range, new 1kg Value Packs, as well as new flavours for existing ranges. Food values and key selling benefits were dialled up, seeing Ingham’s the first in its category to promote air-fryer cooking instructions.
