VMLY&R understands Zespri’s target audience’s behaviour, and we identified the challenges they faced. There is hesitation to add new sources of nutrition at the cost of unfamiliarity and price.

We saw an opportunity for Zespri to dial up on its product benefits. Through our campaign video and KVs, we placed emphasis on the Vitamin C in Zespri SunGold, the taste of the kiwifruit and how the kiwifruit helps boost immunity.
