Sales-boosting innovations and attention-grabbing marketing campaigns are two major factors ShelfLife takes into consideration when compiling our Best of the Year Round-Up. This compilation highlights consistently strong sales performers as well as new product development (NPD) that has successfully met the latest consumer trends and subsequently receives an extremely positive reaction from both retailers and consumers.

Stir your senses!

Birds Eye Stir Your Senses is a frozen ready meal that involves the consumer in the cooking process

Birds Eye Stir Your Senses is a frozen ready meal that involves the consumer in the cooking process

2015 has been another successful year for Birds Eye, Ireland’s number one* brand in frozen food, with the launch of Stir Your Senses, a range of premium, pan-cook ready meals.  Stir Your Senses is the first major innovation for many years in the mature frozen ready meals sector which has seen continuous decline over an extended number of years.

Birds Eye recognised consumer demand for convenient solutions which also satisfy the trend towards scratch/assembly cooking, ensuring that with Stir Your Senses, consumers are involved in the stir cooking process on the hob rather than disengaged microwave preparation.  Available in individual servings and ready in less than 10 minutes, the concept offers consumers a completely new, multi-sensorial cooking experience and Stir Your Senses allows home cooks to simply stir the ingredients in a pan to gradually unlock aromas, colours and tastes from around the world. Drawing inspiration from Italian, Thai and Indian cuisines, Birds Eye Stir Your Senses provides all the pleasure of quality time in the kitchen without fuss of preparation.

Since launch Birds Eye Stir Your Senses has been heavily supported with a sustained, integrated programme of support including in-store, TV, out of home and digital media. Consistent messaging across TV, digital and out of home has ensured the establishment of the Stir Your Senses brand and ‘stir-cooking’ concept while supporting individual hero varieties within the range.

Stir Your Senses has demonstrated, even within a mature category with low consumer engagement, that the right concept, at the right price with the right distribution and support can deliver exceptional results. Birds Eye Stir Your Senses has turned category performance around in the 26 weeks since launch delivering household penetration of 7%**  and category value growth of 4.3%*.

Light and refreshing

San Miguel Fresca is a pale blonde Spanish lager with a malty aroma and soft fruit flavours that provide a cleansing and refreshing hoppy finish. Fresca is well suited to most foods, in particular meats, snacks and salads. Fresca is brewed with the best selection of hops, which make it the perfect beer to enjoy with friends, to relax with and value the important moments.

Shiny gold in colour with a fine layer of foam, San Miguel Fresca boasts a medium intensity aroma, and is slightly fruity with smooth notes of hops and malt. This beer is light and refreshing, with a fine bitterness, which together with the slice of lemon when served, manages to smooth the bitterness of the beer while adding touches of citrus flavour. This mild addition offers a perfect accompaniment to the beer while enhancing its freshness on the palate.

San Miguel Fresca was also awarded at the prestigious International Brewing Awards in 2013.

Singing out about a stellar success

An ongoing multimedia campaign and engagement with customers makes Galaxy Duet a stellar success in 2015

An ongoing multimedia campaign and engagement with customers makes Galaxy Duet a stellar success in 2015

2015 marked a strong year in terms of NPD for Galaxy, the fourth largest chocolate brand in Ireland, as Galaxy Duet was launched nationwide to huge success.

It was supported by a heavyweight, multi-media campaign which included dedicated TV advertising, outdoor, digital, experiential and PR campaigns and a massive nationwide in-store execution which reached approximately 3.2 million consumers.

Available in two variants: Cookies & Cream and Caramel & Shortcake, the chic and stylish chocolate bar provides consumers with the chance to create their own perfect taste combination when it comes to indulging in their favourite chocolate.

The rollout of Galaxy Duet saw tailored launch plans by the customer which set new in-store execution benchmarks, delivered strong early rate of sale and display indications and was supported by in-store sampling.

One of the most exciting aspects of the heavy weight ATL launch was the airing of a dedicated Galaxy TV campaign, which went on air in October. The TV ad features a modern interpretation of the classic ‘Moon River’ which features in the brand’s innovative 2013 Audrey Hepburn TV copy. The 2015 ad features up and coming Irish singer Chanele Mc Guinness, and the track has been released on iTunes.

With a strong aftercare programme, Galaxy Duet is on track to continue to deliver tangible sales and penetration growth for the brand. The success of Galaxy is down, not only to the strength of its portfolio and commitment to innovate, but also its ability to deliver engaging and relevant campaigns that capture the imagination of Irish consumers both inside and outside of the store, this will ensure success for the brand in 2016 and beyond.

The JWV+ range offers beverages that are simply ‘better for you’

JWV+ is a juicy, vitamin water which is low in calories, contains 100% of RI (recommended intake) of seven essential vitamins (C, B1, B3, B5, B6, B7, B12) and fruit juice. It is free from preservatives and artificial flavours, has added functional ingredients that provide antioxidants and boost your energy levels and metabolism, is vegan, gluten free with no added sugar and contains natural mineral water.

In pole position in poultry

Moy Park’s Roast-in-the-Bag range is a state-of-the-art innovation

Moy Park’s Roast-in-the-Bag range is a state-of-the-art innovation

Moy Park, Ireland’s number one poultry brand, continues to be a market leader in the poultry sector. Representing 6.4% value share of the poultry market across 52 weeks, the Moy Park brand reaches 45.9% of households across the year*. Throughout 2015 Moy Park has successfully recruited new shoppers whilst also encouraging shoppers to purchase the brand more frequently.

This increase in market performance is reflective of Moy Park’s commitment to innovation and response to consumer demand.  In April of this year Moy Park launched the first roast-in-the-bag chicken product to use cutting edge thermoformed packaging technology.  The state of the art packaging is a printed, sealed pack that can go straight into the oven. The new ‘shelf to oven’ whole chicken product, which was recognised with a prestigious Irish Quality Food Award, was launched under the Moy Park ‘Good Kitchen’ range, which was developed to target a growing market for added-value fresh chicken products. Moy Park was also awarded a CIM Marketing Excellence Ireland Award for ‘Best FMCG Retail including Online’ for the launch of the Roast in the Bag product range.

Moy-Park_Green_Pantone 343The Roast in the Bag whole chickens, which are locally sourced and come in two flavours, Extra Tasty and Garlic & Herb, achieved listings with Dunnes Stores and Tesco Ireland as well as through the convenience channels in Ireland. They have also successfully resonated with the Irish consumer.  Profile analysis from Dunnhumby indicates that the products appeal to a family orientated and younger demographic in line with the market positioning as a convenient meal solution for the time poor shopper**.

Briege Finnegan, brand marketing manager Moy Park said: “We are delighted with the success of the roast in the bag range and to receive acknowledgment for the launch of the products,” says Brian Finnegan, brand marketing manager for Moy Park. “Winning an Irish Quality Food and a CIM award is recognition that we have developed a product and created a communications campaign that deliver real business benefits.

“It is testament to the hard work and collaborative efforts of the brand, marketing and new product development teams in delivering not only an award-winning product range but an award-winning marketing campaign,” he added. “Since the launch of Moy Park’s Roast in the Bag range in April 2015, sales have gone from strength to strength, with plans in place to launch delicious new flavours.”

The Moy Park branded range includes a variety of fresh chicken products for consumers who enjoy cooking from scratch, breaded chicken products – perfect for convenient and delicious mid-week meals – as well as a range of added value ready to cook chicken products, which give aspiring cooks a helping hand.

In line with this global trend, Propercorn is now selling almost 3m packs of its award-winning popcorn per month and is set to drive the move towards healthy snacking in Ireland and across Europe in 2016.

Propercorn was originally founded in 2011 by 31-year-old Cassandra Stavrou, on a belief that there should be no compromise between health and taste when snacking. Flavour innovation has been key to Propercorn’s rapid growth over the past four years, winning Great Taste Awards for its hero Sweet & Salty flavour and market leading differentiator, Sweet Coconut & Vanilla. 2016 will see the release of further flavours and formats in Ireland, which respond directly to the demands of shoppers and current trends.

New bottle: Same relentless passion since 1862

Bacardí is the world's number one selling rum

Bacardí is the world’s number one selling rum

Celebrating its 153rd anniversary this year, Bacardí rum launched the first packaging update to the world’s number one selling rum in more than a decade. Heavily influenced by Art Deco style, the new bottle design reflects the brands unique heritage and provenance, although its timeless quality ensures it looks just as good in some of the world’s finest bars today as it did in the 1920s. Designed in consultation with some of the world’s leading bartenders, it has been created to ensure it is well balanced in order to produce the perfect pour. It is taller, slimmer and more cylindrical, with proud shoulders reminiscent of the more classic style of bottles.

To enhance to the packaging relaunch, the brand also introduced Bacardí Carta Fuego, a bold yet smooth spiced rum spirit drink containing aged Puerto Rican rum with flavours and spices for a fiery taste. Taking its name from the Spanish word for ‘fire’, the brand states Fuego is crafted with true passion by Maestros de Ron Bacardí. It is aged for a minimum of one year in torched oak barrels, shaped using a secret mix of charcoals and blended to deliver plenty of spice, creating a robust flavour that’s both smooth and intense.

A masterful collection

The Lindt Master Chocolatier Collection combines modern packaging with a variety of stylish new pralines

Bringing a truly contemporary and eminently giftable new brand to the very traditional inlaid boxed chocolate segment was the spark that drove the Lindt master chocolatiers to create this very special collection of unique and delicious pralines. The Lindt Master Chocolatier Collection combines modern packaging design with an array of stylish new pralines from the simplicity of the Toffee Truffle praline to the decadent Raspberry Ganache.

Special attention was given by the Lindt master chocolatiers that developed the two gift boxes (144g & 305g) to delivering a bespoke array of textures and flavours to please every palate. The national launch in 2015 was supported by a major communication plan including instore sampling and advertising and bolstered with a national print campaign. All of this helped reinforce Lindt’s position in the market with market share of 12% (+0.7ppts) and growth well ahead of the market of +13.3% value sales*. Demonstrating all that is distinct and special about Lindt’s offering, the contemporary Lindt Master Chocolatier Collection is proving itself to be a classic.

GF_SweetFellas-BrownieIn a frozen dessert aisle near you…Goodfella’s launched a first in the frozen category, with its launch of a new, innovative, fun, tasty Dessert Pizza under the name “Sweet Fellas”.

Goodfella’s thought why not combine everyone’s two favourite things in life…pizza and dessert! It’s the best of both worlds.

With two flavours to choose from, Goodfella’s has created a dessert for all of the family to enjoy – and the best part is – it cooks in less than 17 minutes! This makes Goodfella’s Sweet Pizza one of the quickest cooking desserts in the frozen category.

The first of the flavours is Chocolate Brownie. A tasty sugar-infused base topped with a rich decadent chocolate sauce, milk chocolate chips, white chocolate chips and finished off with a delightful brownie crumble – guaranteed to leave empty plates.

GF_SweetFellas-AppleAs if chocolate pizza wasn’t enough, Goodfella’s has also launched an Apple Crumble Pizza. Generously topped with a heavenly bramley apple sauce, scrumptious apple pieces and a sweet crumble topping. It’s the perfect twist on the classic apple crumble.

“Sweet Fella’s range is part of our ambition to expand the Goodfella’s Brand into other categories through pure innovation. Consumer insights show that frozen desserts are already heavily cross shopped with pizza so we thought why not make a completely new innovative, fun product for consumers to enjoy*” said Sharon Whelan, marketing manager, Goodfella’s.

Consumers’ tastes are evolving and demand for great tasting quality flavoursome products is high. With the launch of Henry Denny’s Fire & Smoke in April of 2015, Kerry Foods has shaken up the cooked meats aisle, made it a destination and drove growth back into the category.
