Spread brand Flora has repositioned itself to consumers with a ‘Powered by Plants’ campaign drive, dovetailing with the launch of dairy-free variant Flora Freedom, as it seeks to burnish its health credentials.
The re-launch will see Flora champion its plant-based ingredients including rapeseed, sunflower and linseed oils –all of which are rich in Vitamin E, Omega 3 and 6 whilst also catering for the 12 per cent of UK households with a dairy allergy or intolerance.
James Brennan, Flora marketing manager at Unilever UK, commented: “Celebrating the plant-based ingredients in Flora and the resulting health benefits will reposition the brand back to its heartland of being a healthy alternative to butter. Over the course of this campaign we look to support Mums as they build their healthy, happy families. The Flora Freedom dairy-free variant is a delicious tasting spread that ensures that those who have an intolerance or allergy, or simply want to choose Free From products, can enjoy a great tasting spread.”
Modernised tub designs will be rolled out across Flora Original, Flora Buttery, Flora Light, Flora Gold and Flora Cuisine ranges backed up by a £12.5m campaign will include a new TV advert set to debut on 15 February.
