Campaign Media Awards 2012 - Best Grocery, Soft Drinks & Household Campaign: Dolmio


MediaCom's challenge was to encourage people to see Dolmio as part of their five-a-day requirement for fruit and vegetables.

The agency found that 95 per cent of children do not meet the daily requirement, but if they had been involved in growing their own fruit and veg they were 1.5 times more likely to eat the right foods than those that had not.

Using the Papa puppet character from Dolmio’s ads, MediaCom partnered with The Sun and The Scouts to educate and inspire children to grow their own tomatoes. The dedicated website received more than 137,000 visits and value sales of Dolmio increased by 8.9 per cent year on year.
